Sony is responsible for the influx of digital note taking devices that are on the market and the Digital Paper line of devices were primarily responsible for kickstarting this revolution. What is it like taking comprehensive notes with the Sony stylus? Good e-Reader has produced a video which demonstrates the entire experience, using the latest firmware.
The Sony Digital Paper comes in two variants, a 13.3 inch and a 10.3 inch. We are evaluating the DPT-RP1, since it is more affordable. Sony has one of the best drawing experiences out there, the latency on the stylus is not as great as the Apple Pencil, but it does a tremendous job. The stylus does not have pressure sensitivity, so if you press lightly or hard on the screen, it won’t influence anything. Instead, you have to adjust the pencil or pen settings and what type of line you want, there are around six different options for different degrees. When you are taking notes, this is not a big deal, only if you are creating art, does it tend to be noticeable.
