Sony Debuts Small Version of Digital Paper E-Ink Tablet

By Radu Iorga

Sony had an interesting device launched last year, the Sony DPT-RP2 Digital Paper tablet, which was a giant E-Ink machine with an impressive battery life. It was an A4 size device and this week it got smaller, as Sony announced the A5 version of it. The newcomer is aptly named DPT-CP1 and it keeps the bulk of the specs, but changes format.

We’re dealing with a 10.3 inch screen here with a resolution of 1404 x 1872 pixels, at 224 dots per inch. It provides 16 levels of grayscale, 16 GB of storage for PDF files and supports sharing with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac via a companion app. The thickness is crazy, at 5.9 mm and the weight is about half a pound, also not bad at all. Sony promises here about a month of usage with a single charge. That’s the real appeal of the device, making it ideal for student or office use.

This is sadly just a product meant for the Japanese market, so no luck if you want it in Europe or USA. The price is said to be “about $650”, but it may be bigger in fact. At least it’s $100 cheaper than the bigger unit. Availability starts in early June. The other model measured 13.3 inches in diagonal and had a price of around $700 or $750. The big model shipped with a stylus, but that was reported to be laggy by its testers.

Hopefully Sony fixed the bugs and before you get excited, I should mention that the pen doesn’t come with support for pressure sensitivity.

reMarkable E-Paper Tablet on Track to Ship on August 29th

By Radu Iorga

It appears that more and more indie tablet and e-reader makers are betting on e-paper and e-ink for their devices. The reMarkable is one such machine, an e-paper tablet, that’s ready to debut on August 29th. Let’s see what it’s all about.

Basically what you’re getting here is a Kindle replacement or a digital notebook made to imitate writing on paper as faithfully as possible. The company behind the product has been working for years to augmented the capabilities of e-paper displays, tweaking the hardware and software as much as possible. Lower latency in touch and response, natural writing and excellent visibility were all goals here.

What reMarkable did especially well was halve the latency of the latest e-paper displays, going down to about 55 milliseconds. There’s also a Wacom-style passive pen in the mix, with tilt and pressure support and also it provides a special layer support for documents. The resulting slate is all black and white and it’s able to work with sketches and documents, as a real ledger or notebook would.

11.000 such units are shipping on August 29th and as it usually happens with such good ideas, crowdfunding was the way to go. Specs include a 10.3 inch monochrome screen, a 1 GHz ARM A9 CPU, a 3000 mAh battery and 8 GB of storage. You can preorder one now at 33%, taking down the price to $479.
