Sony announced the 13.3-inch Digital Paper e-reader over ten months ago, but only for the Japanese market. Now, the e-reader with a stylus that allows users to write down their notes directly on the displayed documents can be seen at this week’s American Bar Association Tech Show in Chicago and is planned to become available for US customers in May.

The Sony Digital Paper targets business customers and has the following highlights:

  • Display: 13.3-inch, 16-level grayscale capacitive e-ink with 1,600X1,200 pixels
  • Storage: 4 GB internal and microSD support 
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, micro USB
  • Dimensions/Weight: 12.2X9.17X0.27 inches; 0.78 pounds
  • Autonomy: up to three weeks on a charge

Sony Digital Paper offers full support for viewing and editing PDF files, but "Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel files can be converted to the PDF format and saved, viewed and annotated on the Digital Paper device" as well. New, empty documents to add notes to can be created and edited as needed, too. 

According to the press release below, "Worldox is integrating Digital Paper with its award-winning Document Management Solution (DMS), so legal and other professionals can easily and securely access documents, upload handwritten notes and annotated documents, and share with other individuals or groups." and Sony Digital Paper will first be sold through "a selected group of Worldox agents." The suggested price for this device is $1,100 USD.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
