Sony Reader PRS-505

I’ve been using a Sony Reader since last June. It’s an excellent device for reading fiction. I got the latest model (PRS-505) when in San Francisco recently. This has a slightly modified form factor that improves on the PRS-500. Plus it has a slightly better screen. One nice thing the the PRS-505 does that the previous one didn’t, is that it mounts as a USB drive in Mac OS X. This means that content can be copied on to it without using he Windows only Sony Connect Software. Don’t get me wrong, I still use the Windows software for most of the content management, but I use the USB disk mode to quickly get interesting web pages and articles onto the device for reading away from the computer. Copying the text from a web page into Microsoft Word and saving as an RTF file produces a file that looks really nice on the Reader.
