If you want to buy a Kindle Touch but you are not living in U.S. and thinking about Kindle 4 buying instead, you don’t need to do that any more !, Sony PRS-T1WC is a touhcscreen ebook reader that allowed you to do everything that Kindle Touch offers with a better features ! , and also if you are worry about how to buy ebook, since Sony PRS-T1WC is an Android OS ebook reader, you can use your Amazon account to buy ebook from Kindle store, and also if you are already have a Kindle account, you can use your owned account with Sony PRS-T1WC. So, in my opinion, Sony PRS-T1WC is a perfect Kindle Touch replacement for international ebook readers who want to buy a touchscreen ebook reader.
And how bout Sony PRS-T1WC compared to Kindle touch and Kindle 4 ? I have do some test about both Kindle 4 and Sony PRS-T1WC international order and here is my result (price could be different, based on your location) :
For a Kindle 4 international order, it had cost me around 175 USD to order and ship to my country. ( Amazon Kindle 4 price for international shipping is 109 USD plus handling, shipping and tax).
While with Sony PRS-T1WC, I have to pay around 200 USD to ship Sony PRS-T1WC to my country, or on the other hand, there is around 25 USD difference between Sony PRS-T1WC and Kindle 4 to ship to my country and you have to ask yourself this : Will you pay more 25 USD, for a touchscreen, stylus, onscreen dictionary, super fast multitouch gesture navigation ebook reader ? In my opinion, Sony PRS-T1WC is worth for 25 USD extra !
And also with Sony PRS-T1WC, you have choices, if you don’t want to buy ebook from Amazon, you can also buy ebook from Sony Ereader’s official online store (if it is available in your country), or you can buy someplace else, Sony PRS-T1WC is more open to ebook formats than Kindle. But if Ereader is not available in your country, you don’t need to worry because you can always buy ebook from Amazon, globally via Kindle app for Android.
