Conclusion

Performance

The Sony Reader Pocket PSR-350 put up a decent performance for an eInk reader, but unless you value the look of an eInk display, it won't seem very impressive compared to a color LCD.

Screen Performance

While small, the Pocket's screen gets the job done. It's eInk screen allows for a natural reading experience in just any lighting condition from dim to sunny.

Battery Life

The Pocket's battey life was pretty good for an eReader its size, allowing for over 24 hours of nonstop reading.

Ereader:

As an eReader, the Pocket is pretty good. The touchscreen allows for smooth page turning and the eInk screen itself is enough to be a selling point for some people. Additionally, the small size and simple functionality lend itself to an eReader: everyone already has an iPhone or Android phone, why do they need an eReader that can browse the web?

Audio & Video:

The Pocket doesn't feature audio or video playback.

Email & Web Browsing:

The Pocket doesn't have online connectivity.
