Professionals representing many industries and institutions have been embracing the 13.3 inch Sony Digital Paper as a better way to read and write. This has promoted Sony to officially slash the entry level price from from $1,100 to $999.
The lower price should be more appealing towards schools and businesses looking to divest themselves from a copious amount of paper. Many of the clients that deal with Sony normally buy a few for a trial run and this discount should assist them in further adoption. The $999 price tag will also be a boon towards power-users who find themselves editing PDF files on a daily basis.
Sony is also hyping the the device’s built-in WebDAV protocol, that enables users to wirelessly transfer electronic documents created on Digital Paper to and from a user’s compatible online document file-sharing and storage services, such as Box.com.
Many people have been on the fence about purchasing the DPT-S1 and a $101 discount is very compelling. This is simply one of the best e-readers ever made and has technology from e-Ink not really seen in any commercial device. Battery Life, resolution and document editing are the main attractions and no other e-reader or tablet comes close in this regard.
