Sony Intros 10-Inch Digital Paper Model
Sony today announced a 10-inch version of its Digital Paper device. The DPT-CP1 is "notebook-sized," compared to the original 13-inch "letter-sized" DPT-RP1.
Like the 13-inch model, the notebook-sized device is about a quarter-inch thick, offers a glare-free paper-like display and comes with two different stylus tips (for a pen-like or pencil-like writing experience). It has 16 GB of internal memory and can last up to three weeks on a single charge (with WiFi/Bluetooth turned off), according to the company.
In addition, both the 10-inch and the 13-inch models now sport a number of new features:
- A new Digital Paper mobile app, available in June for Android and iOS, will allow users to transfer documents, forms and notes to and from the Digital Paper more easily;
- With the new screen capture/display output mode, users can connect via PC or Mac to a projector and then display Digital Paper content (including real-time handwriting and mark-up) to a large screen;
- Support for interactive PDFs and smart forms;
- A page jump function, allowing users to enter a page number and go directly to that page;
- Pan and zoom, for moving the display area on an enlarged page view;
- Automatic page rotation; and
- Page thumbnails mode, for viewing up to 16 pages at once.
