An old expression, "Don't judge a book by its cover," rings true, even in the digital realm. At first glance, the appearance of the slim Sony PRS-500 Portable Reader System is disappointing, but curling up with this smart device turns out to be a smart choice.
Bookbags stuffed with heavy loads of books is a concern of both parents and health care officials. Perhaps electronic book readers could help lighten the load carried by students in the future. Another good thing about these devices is the ability to view a variety of formats,, download newsfeeds, and play MP3 files. This means student can view or listen to a variety of material to supplement classroom activities.
Prices need to come down a bit more and units need to be fortified for everyday student use for schools to issue these device. However, backache relief may be around the corner.
