I've been comparing the Sony PRS-T2 to the Kindle Touch. Here's what I've found:

Pros:
-Lighter
-Better organized display, clearer and more intuitive.
-No ads.
-Shows the book cover art (optionally) both in the menus and as a screen saver- I love this feature because staring at a books' cover is one of the pleasures of a good book. The Kindle NEVER shows the cover art- instead it shows ads as a screen saver unless you pay $40 more which would make it $10 more than the Sony.
-You can download library books directly to the device.
-Supports epubs.
-Has useful and convenient buttons.
-Has page numbers.
-Display seems a bit brighter and crisper.
-Indicates how many days you have left on library books.

Cons:
-No sound. I like the Kindle's Text to Speech option.
-Have to swipe instead of just touch to turn pages (though the buttons make up for this).
-Can't skip from chapter to chapter with a swipe like you can with the Kindle but it has many other ways to navigate a book that the Kindle doesn't have).
-Screen seems to flash more (though I believe it flashes to black only every 6th page turn just like the Kindle).
-Can't download books directly from Amazon or Google books, (have to use your computer and connect to USB for Google and Amazon books are not supported at all) though you can download directly from the Sony Reader Store and Gutenberg and probably others.
-Slightly cheaper look to the Sony, really just from the plastic buttons, the rest is simple and sleek and feels good in your hands.

Overall, once you're immersed in a book both readers provide pretty much the same experience- they're both a pleasure to use.

Disappointment. That is the first word I would use to describe how I feel about the new Sony PRS-T2 eReader. Someone at Sony must have forgotten to mention that when companies release an "upgraded device," they are actually supposed to do more than just change the material of the outer casing. If you buy a PRS-T2, you will be spending $130 for a "new" device that could have been released two years ago. Their technology is that dated. It is a total ripoff.

The PRS-T2, Sony's latest offering (if you could call it that), does almost NOTHING to improve on the PRS-T1. They have actually removed a majors features, like the ability to listen to audiobooks and music, and have given us nothing appealing in its place.

This is important: they are still using the same old 600 x 800 E Ink screen they have been putting in their readers for the past three years, while other brands are pushing ahead with beautiful high-definition and glow displays. In an ironic twist, the text actually looks darker and more bold on the PRS-T1! On the PRS-T2 there is no 1024 x 768 HD E Ink screen (as will be featured on the new Kindle and Kobo Glo), and they didn't even try to sharpen the text by releasing a better text rendering firmware update.

Their main ad for the PRS-T2 touts the addition of a Facebook sharing app and Evernote tie-in. They have increased the social reading aspects of the device by tying it in to Facebook, and you can now save blog posts and web articles to an Evernote account and read them on your offline later. But other than that, we are losing more than we are gaining (the Facebook feature didn't even work during the first month of its release!). I don't really see Facebook/Evernote as a positive improvement.

The PRS-T2 has a reasonable set of features, but it has nothing to recommend it over similar devices; and, in terms of technology, it lags behind the newest offers from Amazon or Kobo. The Facebook, Evernote, and browser features may seem attractive, but, in practice, they are largely useless. (If you need to take notes while reading, then, in my opinion, you need a tablet, not a reader.)

Moreover, (although not mentioned in the user guide) it charges only from a computer or from Sony's PRSAAC10 adapter (overpriced at approx $25). Sony tech support recommends against using other adapters, because they might "damage the battery"; at any rate, I tried several different kinds, and none worked.

Available protective cases (approx $50 with light, PRSACL22; and approx $40 without a light, PRSASC22) are also, in my opinion, overpriced. (They are also poorly designed; they are difficult to clean, and they have no place to hold the stylus, which means that, sooner or later, it will be lost.)

Consequently, overall I recommend against buying this product.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this device several months ago for academic reading and note-taking. It seemed great according to the specs and special abilities, like being able to take handwritten notes, but when I received it, I had nothing but problems with the software. I have learned to deal with many of the quirks of the unit since switching to Calibre library management software, but I don't think I will be buying any Sony readers in the future. Let's start with the cons, mostly of the software, since there are quite a few of them.

Cons:
- Sony's Reader software, both on the computer and on the e-reader itself, is unrefined, unintuitive, clunky, lacking basic features, and confusing.
- Many of the basic options that one might need, including such simple and essential tasks like deleting a book, are buried in menus and often need unintuitive gestures or double-taps to access.
- If you are attempting to load the unit with more books than it has room for, it fails the transfer with no explanation. I am baffled as to why there is not a "more space required" dialogue in these situations. There is no indicator bar to show how full the unit is.
- When reading a document while zoomed in, the zoom will default if you change the orientation of the unit. It will also zoom out if you try to use the annotation. Zooming back in disables the annotation- Not sure how I am supposed to annotate or take notes on text that is too small to read.
- The unit has issues loading PDF files with certain date formatting. I use the unit primarily for scientific reading, and nearly all of the PDF articles that I download from certain sites end up being incompatible for this reason.
- Unit responds very slowly.
