The 5.9-ounce T2, which comes in black, white, and red, looks very similar to last year's PRS-T1, but according to Sony, it brings some feature and performance improvements along with some tweaks to the button layout and design.
Here are the highlights: Sony says the "glare-free" E-Ink Pearl V220 touch screen has been enhanced for long-term reading. There are new social features (Facebook and Evernote), a simplified home screen, and an updated default book layout intended to make it easier to organize and find books. Smoother zoom in and out, "paperlike" page turns, and improved continuous page turns are designed to improve the reading experience. There are two built-in English-language and four translation dictionaries. Battery life has been doubled from one month to two with wireless off, and the device's control buttons have been redesigned.
Finally, the matte black T2 model includes a free voucher for the e-book of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone," redeemable from the Pottermore shop online. (That's right, only the black model.)
