The Sony Digital Paper has been exclusively available online for the last year. Sony sells it directly, but they also have a number of partners that range from law firms to entertainment companies. One of the drawbacks with any piece of technology is being able to try it out before you make a buying decision. In order to make this possible Sony begun an experimental program to showcase the DPT-S1 in two locations, one in Stanford and one at their flagship store in New York. Sadly, one of them has closed.
The Stanford Bookstore Palo Alto California has closed and this was one of the two retail outlets in which the Sony Digital Paper was on display and available for students to purchase.
Recently the Sony Digital Paper has been discounted from $999 to $799, which should increase the adoption rate. We have reviewed MANY e-readers since 2008 and this is the best one to edit and create PDF files.
