We had seen a picture of an e-reader thought to be from the Sony stable. Following this leak, the company has actually shown off the Sony Reader PRS-T2 in its full glory. Now the new generation e-reader comes with cloud storage and a better battery life.
Replacing the old timer from Sony – PRS-T1- the new reader has the novelty of integrating Evernote, a cloud based aggregation service which helps you highlight favorite passages from books and store in cloud for future reference.
Evernote Clearly is an additional feature that helps you save articles or web clips in the cloud which can be retrieved through the Evernote integration on Sony PRS-T2. However you need a Wi-Fi connection to your Sony PRS-T2 to do so.
Another novelty with the new reader is the better battery life. It offers up to 2 months of power life if the Wi-Fi is switched off. In that way it gives two times more power life than its predecessor.
Other features of the new device include a 6-inch display which boasts about the E-Ink Pearl technology. This helps users to zoom in text by a pinch and pull method. If you keep the reader connected to a Wi-Fi network, the device will also help you find the meaning of difficult terms and expressions.
The new e-reader from Sony is available in red, white and black shades. A limited time promotional offer will give you a free voucher for the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
