FIRST PHOTOS! Red Sony Reader!!

September 20, 2008

Photos taken Saturday, September 20, 2008 with the Philips crapcam.

Usually I publish photos in the order in which they were taken.

But the crapcam really did a number on the colors here, so I’m publishing the one that better represents the actual red color first:

Yeah, that’s it. It’s really a rich metallic red color. It’s matte and not shiny. It’s simply and absolutely gorgeous!

The other photos really make the red look orangey and fugly and loud, but it’s not!

In addition, the cover is padded and has a texture and a deep brown-maroon color combination. The entire thing is just so damned exciting and classy. Not vulgar, like the poor three pictures.

Sony’s done a great job here, offering this special color. I prefer it over the Silver — and especially over the light-sucking Dark Blue.

These photos were taken at J&R this morning, so run and sell out their stock. In-person price is the same as the website: $294.99.
