Good:  Slim and lightweight, sensitive touch screen, WiFi, Sony Reader Store (when it opens),
Bad:  A bit pricey
Bottomline:  The Sony Reader PRS-T1 is a very capable ebook reader that's extremely light and has a tactile, sensitive screen. It's also an excellent PDF reader and Wi-Fi capability offers some interesting possibilities once the Sony Reader Store opens. It's a wort...

Good:  Multi-touch touchscreen, Thin and very light, Great E-ink Pearl screen
Bad:  Reader Store still not open, No LRF support, Glossy front annoys
Bottomline:  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 connectivi...

Good:  Light and portable, Good book selection, Understated modern design, Optional pen input, Swipe to zoom
Bad:  Screen flicker, Text input was slow, No Web-based book reader, Music hampers battery life
Bottomline:  The Sony Reader PRS-T1 Wi-Fi is a light and thin ebook reader that doesn't quite measure up to the competition. If the only two specifications you care about are the weight (167 grams) or the thickness (9.5mm) then this might be your best option. Howev...
