Well I will put my thoughts here since this topic already exists
So coming from my PRS-505 here is what I like about the Sony PRS-505 over the Kindle 3
What I like about the Kindle 3 over the PRS-505
All in all my overview:
The Kindle 3 is mostly superior to the PRS-505 in many ways. Though I like the build quality and the type face and the ePub support more on my Sony, the benefits of the Wifi+3G and the lighter and better designed cases and speed for my Kindle 3 win out. I waffled quite a bit on this before I bought a Kindle and almost got a Nook but I am glad I got the Kindle in the end.

I just got my Kindle 3 yesterday. Having a PRS-505 for two years.
Kindle 3 wins easily, since the screen is much sharper, contrast is REALLY improved compared to PRS-505.
With Calibre, it is very easy to convert ePUB to Mobi.
However, I decided to keep my PRS-505, just in case. Under direct sunlight, PRS-505 is not so bad, but indoors, Kindle 3 is much better.

I'm with others on the much better screen and speed. I don't use the default formats, so I can't really comment on those. I bought the K3 pretty much just for the screen, and on the basis of that alone I feel it was worth the cost. The speed boost was nice too, though it's still far from ideal.
