This desirable hunk of aluminium, while only 8mm thick, sports an SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo slot to allow you some upgrade space as well as easy transferring of files to and from your reader.
With all this crammed into a neat piece of Sony-candy, what's stopping you running out right now and buying one for everyone in the family in order to save the rainforests and finally put to rest the dead tree format?
Money! Money-money-money-money - This thing will set you back roughly 270 U.S. Dollars and make you cry tears of poorness. This is due in fact to three main things; the relative immaturity of e-ink displays, the sheer amount of technology and open format support jammed into its thin sexy one piece aluminium shell and lastly, it's Sony; which if you haven't noticed, is a love/hate relationship of desirability and your money.
