The final addition in Sony's fall lineup of eReaders is here, and it sits at the top of the heap with a 7" Pearl e-Ink display and a responsive touch screen and wireless.
The PRS-950 has both free 3G and WiFi, and you can use both to shop for books on Sony's eBookstore (valid in North America only) and use WiFi with the surprisingly capable web browser.
Unlike the last generation Daily Edition PRS-900, the PRS-950 eReader uses infrared beams rather than a resistive touch screen layer, so the Pearl e-Ink display isn't compromised in any way.
The touchscreen display looks as sharp and contrasty as the Amazon Kindle 3 and Kindle DX Graphite with Pearl e-Ink.
The Sony Reader Daily Edition is a real pleasure to use in every way, but the price is high at US$299 (214 euros).
What do you get for the extra bucks vs. the Kindle and Nook?
The Sony Reader line works with ePUB and PDF documents.
