Sony Digital Paper can open, annotate PDF documents using touch, stylus

Sony has unveiled a new tablet that uses an e-ink display for note taking and reading, one it trialled last year. Digital Paper is a 12.6-ounce device with a 1,200x1,600-resolution 13.3-inch display, capable of displaying 16 levels of grayscale, though it differs from e-book readers by offering both touch controls and using an accompanying stylus for handwriting, drawing, or for a finer level of control.

The slate measures 9.25-inches wide and 12.25-inches tall, with a thickness of 6.8mm (0.27 inches), making it similar in size and thickness to a pad of letter-sized paper. Its battery allows for up to three weeks of use on a single charge, the 4Gb of internal storage can be bolstered by a microSD card, and it also includes Wi-Fi connectivity. While Sony boasts it can be used with documents from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, they have to be converted to PDF before being readable or annotated on the device.

Marketed towards industries that heavily use documents, such as legal professionals and educators, Sony's Digital Paper is set to ship in the United States this May for around $1,100.

    A bit too expensive, otherwise a great product!
