Kindle 3 vs Sony 600 Photos

The Kindle 3 compares very well with the Sony 600 since the latter’s touch screen affects readability. The Sony 650 is supposed to fix that problem and Kindle 3 vs Sony 650 ought to be a much fairer fight.

Hopefully these photos gave you a good idea of how the Kindle 3 and the Sony 600 (Sony Reader Touch Edition) compare against each other. Please let me know if you’d like any specific photos (like the two of them dancing a tango on a bridge).

The Sony Reader 600 suffers from a lot of glare and loss of readability due to a touch layer being laid over the eInk screen. Add on that the Kindle 3 has the latest generation eInk Pearl screen and it’s a rather unfair comparison. The new Sony 600 is supposed to arrive with -

  1. Definitely – A touch layer that is below the eInk and thus doesn’t obstruct the readability.
  2. Presumably – The new eInk Pearl screen.

That will make Kindle 3 vs Sony 650 a very delicious contest and a fair one.
