SANS - Survey on application security programs

The Reader is simple and clean of line. Unlike some other devices of this type, there is little in the way of adornment to distract you from the words on the screen.

Micro USB is the only way to get content onto the Reader

Which is a 5in, 600 x 800 panel based on the lastest, Pearl generation of E Ink technology - so the text is crisper and the 'paper' less muddy than older E Ink screens, though it's still some way from white.

And unlike Sony's previous touch-sensitive Reader, the PRS-600, the addition of the tap sensors hasn't resulted in darker, less well-defined text.

Just as well, because it's the touch capability that makes the Reader. Swiping to turn a page comes so naturally now we've all become accustomed to touch-controlled user interfaces on our iOS and Android phones. Tapping on the title of the book you want to read or the setting you want to apply is even more so.

The back-cover blurb

You might wonder why Sony includes a stylus at all, but the new Reader's UI has some elements that are small and up close to the edge of the screen - the alphabet down the right hand side of the display that you can use to speed your navigation through long lists of books is a case in point - and folk with big fingers may find they can't quite hit the letter they want to.
