Sony's compact digital book, the PRS300BC Reader Pocket Edition (Navy Blue) features a 5 inch, paper-like display that delivers an easy-on-the-eyes reading experience. In addition to the natural reading surface, the Reader also has adjustable font sizes, quick page turning, and a high contrast ratio, which makes reading possible even in direct sunlight. Side-button navigation also ensures seamless reading with right and left-hand side page advance buttons.
Leave the dusty library at home; with 512MB of onboard memory there's enough space to store up to 350 books on your Reader at once. Sony also gave this digital book compatibility with both PC and Mac. Both systems support the easy to use eBook Library 3.0 software for managing your book collection. Supported formats include the industry standards, ePub and PDF.
On a full charge the Pocket Edition will last for up to two weeks of reading (or 7,500 continuous page turns). Charging, and transfer of eBooks, is done through your computer's USB port with the included USB cable.
