Sony's Ultra-Thin, Paper-Imitating Tablet
on 11 April 2017
Sony isn't the only tech company out there trying to replicate the sensations people get when taking a pen to paper. They have, perhaps, come closer than anyone else with the DPT-RP1 e-paper tablet. It's large, and presently stands as the world's lightest and thinnest (just over half a centimeter) digital device. The high resolution electronic paper screen, however, sports a non-slip panel, offering resistance to implements and yielding a more tangible experience. This device holds up to 10,000 PDFs and connects to a digital paper app by way of wifi, Bluetooth or micro USB. And even the back of it has received a matte finish that feels just like paper. Sony will release the DPT-RP1 this June, in Japan only.
