Sony has given its e-book reader, the PRS-505 an update that at first glance looks the same as its predecessor, but what’s more important is to hold onto the adage not to judge a book by its cover. The new PRS-505 features a next generation electronic paper display that boasts superior response times and a higher contrast ratio, complete with double the levels of gray scale at 8. It will be slimmer as well, and come with a more intuitive button layout that is more user friendly. You can choose from silver or dark blue colors, and this updated Sony PRS-505 will not see a price reduction with the final sticker standing firm at $300. What’s the latest e-book you read lately?
