Here is the background story why I have both for anyone interested. I'm copying my post from the Let's Talk Kindle section, the thread that compares Sony Books prices & selections with Kindles! Here it is below:
I have both. I own the Sony PRS-505 Since December 6th of 2007. I love that reader. But I'm also slightly technical, so I never watch were I buy books; I buy LIT & Mobi books from every bookstore and convert. I'm a huge romance reader and Harlequin usually have coupons and since I'm not hindered by format, I have no problem. I've been a member of MobileRead ever since I decided to buy a reader and researched my choices for 3 days before choosing the Sony over the Kindle. Over the past 10 months, I've read a lot about the Kindle on the board- So when the Oprah $50 coupon was posted on the board, I took advantage of it because I had 2 $25 gift certificate from Amazon, so I ordered the Kindle on October 24th of this year and end up paying $259, $40 less then what I paid for the Sony 11 months ago. To tell you guys the truth, the only reason I order the Kindle was to be able to buy from the Amazon bookstore. If their content was available to buy without a Kindke, I probably would not own a Kindle. But now that I do, I love it too. It's hard to explain but I guess it's like having 2 kids, the 1st one is special because you have never been a parent before but that does not mean the 2nd one is less precious. I use both now. I buy most of mine books from Amazon now and make a Sony version and load it on my PRS-505, so I have the books for both reader. I alternate between them. One thing I still like more about the Sony is how they keep track of pages in the book (example of a pages number in a Harlequin typical book on a Sony in small font is 287 pages, so if you're on page 100 then you know there are 187 pages like you just read to get through). Amazon bookstore is a big advantage for serious readers, so I give amazon the edge. Personally, I would not part with either one of my readers. I just got the Sony back 3 days ago after being without it for over 10 days because I sent it back to Sony for battery repair (it was not holding charge for more then 3 days) and I love the fact that I still had the Kindle. So, it's great having 2 electronic readers. I just received the Oberon red dragon cover with velcro on Friday so my Kindle is looking great and competing with mine red Dooney & Bourke cover that I have on the Sony. I'm waiting for my skin from Decalgirl and then I'll post pictures.
