Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 Review

sony_pocket_edition_prs_300-400-400 When it comes to eBook readers the Amazon Kindle (and Kindle DX) seems to get all the press but in fact there are several other makes and models of eBook reader to choose from. The Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 is just one of the smaller and less expensive units on the market and one which I shall be using and reviewing.

The Sony Reader is one of a growing range of eBook readers, a product designed to function as an electronic book reader. The PRS-300 is the baby of Sony’s range, although that doesn’t mean that they have compromised on quality and function. It is a sturdy well-built device that’s also affordable.

Read on to see my thoughts.

LG Ally video is quite amusing

 

LG Ally is coming to save lives. Making reference to Android apps including Latitutude, OpenTable, and eBay we see some “heroes” in the background of the action in Ironman 2 using the Ally,,, efficiently.

It’s a giggle and a much better ad than we are seeing from the rival’s at the moment.

Windows Phone 7 Q&A re Office Hub

windows-phone-series-7-office

Spotted this interesting Q&A session with Microsoft Senior Product Manager Augusto Valdez about the Office HUB. Everything seems to be in order however there will be no PDF support and this will be require from Third party. I suppose this is no big problem and the device will probably ship with something Adobe-esq pre installed. David K from Tilt Mobility has kindly arranged an condensed the session into a much more readable format. Check it out after the break.

HP Slate cancelled?

hp-slate A source “who’s been briefed on the matter” reveals that the Windows 7-based Intel-powered tablet from HP has been canned citing that “it’s too power hungry” as the reason for foregoing its further development and public release. Speculation is that a similarly designed HP tablet could be announced later this year with either Google Chrome or Android as its OS. HP’s recent acquisition of Palm also suggests that a webOS-powered HP Slate might be unveiled in the near future as well.

HP hasn’t commented on these new rumors yet though we are hoping to get some sort of confirmation in the coming days or weeks. For now, we’re listing the future of the Windows 7 HP Slate as questionable.
