Photos: Kindle-2 vs Sony PRS-505 grays - M-Edge cover

I was putting together a set of cell-phone photos of a Kindle in the wild, to be used later on in this blog, but I decided to make a pointer here to the Kindle-related picture set now, for those who've been curious about any of the following:

Sony PRS-505 and Kindle-2 gray screens, at Target.  It's been said the Sony gray is lighter, but not particularly so, although it seems bluer while the Kindle leans more to a greenish tint.
  UPDATE: 4/24/09.  PC World's Melissa J. Perenson presents a "visual tour" contrasting the Sony PRS-700 and Kindle 2 units.

The process is slow, and when you're through typing, the web-process tells you that you were unable to connect with the site, but the posting does goes through.  Same false error-message happens with Gmail-sends.

M-Edge Platform cover - upright on my lap in a dark, cool restaurant lobby on a hot day.  The food took so long I thought I'd take a pic of the Platform jacket in action, with a colorful background.  Not an uplifting news story though.

The M-Edge Platform, closed.
  Like the Amazon cover, it lies very flat but is 3/4" longer to provide the webbing that allows the front cover to be used as a stand.  As the pics indicated, it's also nicely padded.  The left-ledge is meant for an integrated light (separate purchase) when the new version is ready, but that edge makes it less fatiguing to hold with one hand, so I'm rethinking the separate light.
 While I like Amazon's notebook-style cover a lot, the M-Edge's stand-up feature is a real Plus. :-)  So I alternate the covers.  Their other covers. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
