I definitely have to make a pilgrimage to a store soon. I have a PRS-700 on order, since appears to have the most important (for me) features available.
But these photos make a pretty compelling argument against the PRS-700. The screen kind of looks like an early monochrome LCD (I am sure it's not that bad:-)
What puzzles me, though, is that NONE of the reviewers I've read, mention this issue. See, for instance, this: http://mikecane2008.wordpress.com/20...-700-part-two/
Is it possible, that what the reviewers saw, are better, "fixed" units? After all, the darker background and the fuzzier text on the PRS-700 are clearly noticeable in holden1's pictures.
One other question: Is the screen on the PRS-700 slightly larger? It looks that way, yet the specs I see say 6", just like the 505.
