The point of sale of the Sony DPT-RP1 tablet "Digital Paper" is there in the name: it is basically a giant slab of E Ink the same size as a sheet of A4 paper, and works with a stylus for the creation of documents, PDF annotation, and so on. Now Sony announced a new version. the DPT-CP1, which basically is exactly the same but in size A5.
The 10.3-inch screen has a resolution of 1404 x 1872 at 224 dots per inch and can accommodate up to 16 levels of gray scale. The DPT-CP1 has 16 GB of storage for PDF files, which can be shared with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac devices through a complementary application. It has a thickness of 5.9 mm and weighs about half a pound, and Sony says it will last about a month with a single charge.
Like the larger model, it is likely that the DPT-CP1 will remain an exclusive product of Japan, and is not really aimed at conventional consumers: Sony says the price will be "below" 70,000 yen, or around of $ 650, which would make it about $ 100 cheaper than his older brother. It will be available in early June.
