  • Backlighting no
  • Dimensions 0 x 0 x 8 mm
  • Weight 155 g
  • Diagonal screen size 5 inches
  • Internal/external memory 2 GB / NC
  • Autonomy 8000 turned pages
The Pocket version of the Reader has pretty much the same spec as the PRS-650 Touch Edition, except that its touch screen is a 5-inch rather than a 6-inch. The only difference comes in the fact that there's no memory card slot. You have to settle for the 2 GB internal memory. That's already enough to store hundreds of books though.

If its weight (155 grams) and size make the Pocket an ultra-mobile reader, we prefer the 6-inch for reading comfort and handling. The 6-inch also has a very mobile friendly design.


  • Design / Slimline / Quality finish
  • High quality screen / Comfortable reading even in full sunlight
  • Good battery life
  • Interface is simple to use
  • More contrasted and responsive screen


  • Screen too small for prolonged reading
  • No wireless connectivity: you need to download your e-books onto a computer first
  • No mains charger, just the proprietary Sony cable


The pocket verson of the Reader is certainly practical but less adapted to prolonged reading than the PRS-650. Like the 650, the Pocket has no wireless connectivity for downloads while you're on the road. Disappointing.
