PRS700 - Temperature Warning?
I was a little bit shocked to READ that an eReader would succumb
to a frigid death if not cared for in a way to avoid cold tempuratures.
Normally, I would think that electronics should withstand harsh cold
temperature exposure or at least recover but apparently not the case
with eInk? The kindle uses a different display than sony, and the Epson
controller may or may not work the same way but my guess is that it
doesn't. Perhaps we need a torture test conducted?
(toss an eReader in the freezer??)
According to the user manual:
41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C)
So below 5°C or 41, is it to be expected that the reader would fail
to operate? or does it mean that it would simply not turn on?
I've left my reader in the trunk of my car many times where temps
have dipped below -15C and so far all is well. Perhaps another (hidden)
benefit of having a touch panel is the added protection from the elements??

It ghosts more when it is cold, and there is the possibility it will hurt it after prolonged exposure(there's another thread on this topic).
But from what I understand, the Kindle and the Reader have the same exact display.
And I would recommend keeping your 700 nice and warm and snuggled.

Ive Used my reader with it being 20 degrees outside.
the page turns slow, but other than that all is good so far.
thats about 20 minutes of reading in the cold. I would freeze before my reader
