Email

Unless you're visiting GMail.com or some other in-browser email provider, the Sony Reader Daily PRS-950 won't be able to help you check your email.

Web Browsing

Browsing the web on the Daily is a lot like browsing the web on a cell phone ten years ago. It's slow, clunky, and the software doesn't have many features. The device seems to load web sites slower than other devices on the same 3G connection, and navigating around a large page feels sluggish as the screen has to cycle between each motion. While this is certainly a decent browser, especially for a device with an eInk display, it really can't compare the experience you'd get from a modern cell phone.
