    Congratulations team.

  • Hamed

    Congrats!
    🙂

  • Matthew Gregoire

    Congratulations, I would like to buy one of these asap. some posts on the battery life expectancy in certain conditions would be good like wifi on/off, etc.

    You will have to get in line behind 440 people at the moment that would be in front of you that originally helped back the project on indiegogo so you would not get it very fast as they tend to ship them to the lowest numbers to the highest numbers in kickstarter and indiegogo campaigns as it’s first come first serve and usually the original backers get their’s first and the longer you take to pledge the longer delay you will have.

    I looked through the comment’s people made on the Indiegogo page going way back and they said the battery would last 4 weeks and here is a video how they figured that out –

  • Thomas Ally

    With letting it in standby mode they said it would probably be 10 weeks.

    This is just a repackaged Netronix device. What is the big deal? It has been around for a few years. What am I missing? http://www.netronixinc.com/products.aspx?ID=1

  • vicente

    Well, your Netronix’s weight is 450 gr. and theirs is 350 gr…..

  • Vance Vance

    I believe the Good e-Reader’s 13.3 inch device contains a 1270 mAh battery rather than the referred to Netronix device’s 1500 mAh battery. And “around for a few years” does not mean the Netronix was being manufactured. The Sony DPT-S1 also contains a 1270 mAh battery, by the way.

  • Vance Vance

    The big deal, as you’ve put it, is that unlike Sony’s locked down proprietary software limiting their device to displaying / editing only PDFs, this device utilizes a faster processor and…Android!
    Have you not viewed about 15 videos in the Indiegogo campaign?

  • David Smith

    Having used the Netronix device for a over 2 years, it is the same as this device. The buttons, the pen placement, even the box it ships in. Anyway, no need to get upset. All good, it is just an ereader. Don’t get your black and white knickers in a bunch. 🙂

  • David Smith

    Oh, and if you want to see a company that is getting it right. Look at the remarkable. http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/12/2/13818796/remarkable-giant-e-ink-tablet-paper-notebook

    It has a smaller screen, which mean the cost will be a little closer to what the average person wants to spend on this type of device. Trust me, I have done the numbers crunching. Why do you think the Sony device did so poorly.

  • Vance Vance

    Have you had a hand in developing the reMarkable device or its software? I would not state that a company is “getting it right” when what they tout has not yet become available for purchase. I appreciate greater resolution always, but I do not understand what the following means: “Partially powered by E-ink Carta technology.” To me, Carta is the digital paper display and Regal is refresh technology. Sony does PDF; reMarkable intends “PDF and ePUB with more formats to be announced”
    I cannot answer your…question, was it? On the B&H Photo Video website, the Sony earned 4.5 stars out of 5 possible from 67 reviewers.
    I retired ten years ago, but even then had yearned for an eink display as large as a standard sheet of paper to release me from dependence on a laser printer. Having my job stuck in queue behind one or two someone else’s print job(s) commanded time, depleted the paper (and toner!) supply and occasionally jammed the printer pretty much always had me knickers…you know.

    What happened with the 5.1.1 upgrade once you hit $100.000?
    “Once we hit $100,000 in funding we will upgrade Android from 4.0.4 to at least 5.1.1. This will be useful for people who want to run apps and require a modern OS.”

    “$282,137 USD total funds raised
    332% funded on May 17, 2016”

    All in all this is one of the most disappointing crowd funding campaigns I joined. In the meantime competitors sell better devices for less money 🙁 This was the last time I will buy something from you, that’s for sure.

  • otnte

    With letting it in power off mode text/picture will stay there forever.

  • otnte

    Good joke about remarkable aka remarketable:
    “The company expects to ship in August 2017”. Gadget that nobody have ever seen or touched. Company is run by marketing people.
    They had a chance to showcase it at CES 2017. Did not turn up.
    Operating system: custom (locked) Linux-based OS.

    Sony is still selling their 4 year old DPT-S1.
    Still releasing new firmwares. Tell me what other gadget is selling and updating after 4 years?
    You can jailbreak DPT and end up with Android too:)

  • Thomas Ally

    That is usual with e-paper readers as I have an old Cybook Gen3 that still has the power off button even though I have not charged it in ages.

  • Yeah, if you look at the Remarkable LINKEDIN page, its ALL marketing people and like 1 engineer. I doubt this product will ever materialize. The DPT-S1 got discontinued a few months ago.

    Looks like Sony doesn’t have them in stock anymore, same goes for the resellers listed on Sony’s site (Amazon, CDW etc.)

  • Sebastian

    So are these still available for purchase? The purchase link says “Shipping in Sept. 2016” and hasn’t been updated. I am very interested in getting one of these.

  • Vance Vance

    @Sebastian, as this article states, there is still time to reserve one and have it shipped out to you in February. I pledged last year for one of these on Indiegogo and received mine four days ago.

  • Sebastian

    Thanks Vance! Apologies for not having read the article carefully enough 🙂

  • Thomas

    @michaelkozlowski:disqus, can you please keep us updated on the IndieGogo page with how many readers you have shipped so far and how many you plan to ship per week. Communication is key in this type of endeavor.

  • Sebastian

    I am quite concerned that after three weeks that @Michael Kozlowski or another representative of this device hasn’t addressed this comment. Makes me worry that there will be minimal support for this product. Not sure if I want to invest at this point after all.

  • Sebastian

    Do you have any response to Ron’s comment below? “What happened with the 5.1.1 upgrade once you hit $100.000?

    “Once we hit $100,000 in funding we will upgrade Android from 4.0.4 to at least 5.1.1. This will be useful for people who want to run apps and require a modern OS.”

    “$282,137 USD total funds raised

  • Vance Vance

    @disqus_xdxBCHeH3d:disqus – honestly, I cannot easily respond to a claim that “competitors sell better devices for less money.” I am considerate and rely on factual information; if those comments had actually referenced other (competitive) 13.3 inch e-readers, then I’d expect the claim to define what is considered to be “better” about them. Again, in all honesty, I am not someone to ask about Android, either. I have never owned or used any smartphone. For 15 years I have owned Apple computers – primarily desktops. I’m typing this on my third since 2002. Based upon reviews and videos offered by Michael and Peter about the Sony DPT-S1, I bought one a couple of years ago. Because the Sony is limited to PDF, the operating system has been low priority for me. This 13.3 inch Good E-Reader is similar but different. Sony engineers tweaked their operating system to showcase e-ink and its user interface, but I do prefer the 13.3 inch’s overall utility.

  • Sebastian

    I am not talking about the end of his comment. I am talking about the first part of his comment i.e. “What happened with the 5.1.1 upgrade once you hit $100.000?”

    @michaelkozlowski:disqus I have owned a Sony DPT-S1 last month thanks to a friend who stays in America. Therefore, I would like to cancel my request with Order ID 447. I would like to initiate the necessary procedures for the reimbursement. I am so sorry to leave you guys. I have found a PayPal account given to me for the refund account as krzaq@krzaq.cc Now please I want you to hear me for the elimination of my victimization. I am waiting good news from you.

  • Perhaps you should’ve avoided referencing the full quote. The one thing I’ve come to appreciate from the new US President is how he showcases the danger of asking multipart questions.
