The Sony Reader PRS-T1 marks a slight change of direction for Sony's ereader range. Metal construction is out, replaced by a much lighter and slightly more affordable model that's roughly as thin and weighty as a Kindle, while packing better connectivity, expandable memory and a touchscreen. It shrugs off the occasionally utilitarian look of ebook readers too, with a glossy black design. However, this can be distracting and there a few serious problems to iron out. The Sony Reader store isn't yet live in the UK, ruling-out buying books directly, and the lack of legacy support is disappointing.
