Sony has just discounted the Digital Paper DPT-RP1 by $100 on Amazon Prime members and B&H. This is the first time they have ever run a promotion on this particular model. It is now the same price as the 9.7 inch Digital Paper DPT-CP1, that came out few months ago. Good e-Reader has also discounted the DPT-RP1 for international customers.
The DPT-RP1 features a 13.3 inch E-Ink Carta screen with a resolution of 2200 x 1650 and 207 PPI. The screen is completely flush with the bezel and not only does this make the device have a premium feel, it also provides a ton of benefits. You can easily employ the stylus to take notes from one edge of the screen to the other, whereas the original Digital Paper had a sunken screen and was more challenging to do this.
Underneath the hood is a Marvell IAP140 64-bit Quad-core IoT Applications Processor and ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, up to 1.2GHz, and has a separate power low-power Cortex M3. It has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, but when you power it on the first time, there is 11 GB. The rest is reserved for the Google Android operating system and some of the stock PDF templates that are available.
This device is primarily geared towards taking notes, reading PDF files and editing them. This is the best digital reader on the market for working in landscape mode. You can open two different documents and edit them both at the same time or initiate two page spread. This is a great product for professionals and prosumers and you should buy one at this discounted price.
