Preliminary reviews of Sony Reader are out! See this exhaustive review by Bob Russell. Teleread’s David Rothman weighs in . Tim Oreilly makes some remarks about the difficulty of the XML + graphically intense content.
In a nutshell: meets lots of geek expectations, but RSS feeds won’t be as open as originally supposed. Although Sony Reader has nice software (apparently) and file support, its lack of support for straight HTML is a problem. I wonder: will it be possible to create BBEB hyperlinks for Project Gutenberg works?
