Links to fresh Sony Reader reviews

Update: If you want to add more reviews, use the Sony Reader Reviews page in the Wiki instead.

I thought before we all start individual threads about Sony Reader reviews popping up elsewhere on the Net, why not collect them in one thread. Some for a start:

Great! I don't mean to sound like a recording, but don't forget that we can put this info on the wiki too as it collects here. All those willing to help get all this great info on the wiki would be greatly appreciated.

Computerworld says "Another year, another try at e-books. It's a long-shot that Sony will succeed, although it's a slightly better shot that Amazon will."

More Sony Reader fun...

They point out that one advantage of an e-ink reader is that nobody can tell what you're reading. And if you are famous, the photographers won't embarrass you by catching you with the same book four months later, like happened with President Bush!

"But I’m not quite ready to invest in one yet. For one thing, I have a more immediate need for some car repairs. Besides, there’s something that feels good about turning the pages of a real page-turner. Remind me I said that five years from now, when I wonder aloud how I ever got along without an electronic reader."

I like that!

New e-book reader is worth looking at
http://www.ecoustics.com/pcw/reviews/127133

"Is the Reader worth $350? Only if you want to trim your luggage, stop collecting dead trees, or use the large-font feature for easier reading."
