I mean in this way also if your request is definetely fair from my view( you want audio, you want android, you do not want to buy a product that is similar) still I am afraid that updating the T1 software could be a way to decree the exit of Sony from the reader market. They could in fact launch a new model on Sep 13 but not sure people will follow after, as a lot of people are thinking to go toward the amazon product, then is not immediate to move the book another time from epub to the kindle format and the other way around. By the way now on amazon it costs more a T1 than a T2!!!! this is terrible from my view
Please give me your point, because otherwise I am ready to maintain my T2 and buy also a T1, as I am damn tempted.
hope I am not off topic, as this should be more technical.
I don't agree. Many people won't buy the PRS-T2 if it can't be rooted. The lack of rooting of the PRS-T2 is a great disadvantage of this product, which IMHO can't compete anymore with nook glow or kindle paperwhite.
By the way, I don't that think that the community is so much important for the success or failure of an ebook reader. There are very few people that buy an ereader for rooting it. The vast majority of people is unaware of hacks or related things. If sony doesn't want to fail on ebook reader market, it should make better products.
