The PRS-700 can run Java, but it is rather tricky to invoke the programs.

Read the forums about implementing a dictionary on the 505 as an example.

It doesn't run Java but has a custom implementation of ECMAScript (also known as JavaScript), which is a completely different beast.

Is this a software or a hardware limitation on the PRS-700. ie does the screen even have the hardware sensitivity to detect 'scribbles' with the stylus?

Since it can detect a drag, I would bet it can detect a scribble. The keyboard interface is just a simpler one to implement, and ascii text takes up less space than the gif/jpg/png that would be generated by a scribble, can be put into XML and exported, easily viewed by other apps, etc... I would suspect that these were the leading reasons for the keyboard implementation. The hardware is probably quite capable of doing either.

All of your private "notepads" would be at the top of your booklist, or an alternative:

My Notes:Notes
My Notes:Reminders
My Notes:To do list

Or any other previx to your liking, would also group your "notepads" together in the alphabetical book listing.
Just wanted to thank you! Great Idea!

As an aside, it looks like your shopping around. The EBookWise eReader has a stylus and you can add notes scribble on text, highlight, etc..

The device is slightly more than $100. It's not an eInk device but the device lats between 10-15hrs on a single charge.

Hi wetdogeared!

Just wanted to thank you for your really good idea concerning creating private notes with the Sony PRS-700!

I've tried it out and it seems to work really good. For sure not that good as if a function for notes, not depending on a certain book, would have applied, but it's a good way to help myself, as I found out.

Greetings from Germany,
Momo

You're welcome, I'm just happy someone reads my posts.

*another idea* What if someone created a book with one page for each month or each day of the year with dates or times to click on. We could attach reminders or notes to certain dates or times within dates. We could have a crude daily or weekly organizer. Any takers.

WDE.

No place to keep a separate "note pad" that is not associated with one of the above.

This might be way out there, but you could create a document on your computer containing text that you could highlight and then add notes to. i.e.

Notes 1
Notes 2
Notes 3 ...

..or

Notes 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...
Reminder 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...
ToDo List 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...

Call this document "Notebook" and copy to reader as a book (and possibly create separate "Books" for Reminders and ToDo list).

Go to read your new "Notebook".
Comments could then be attached to each line or number in the book.
System keeps tracks of all notes and their dates.
Notes would have the title "Notes 1", "Notes 2", "Notes 3" etc., you couldn't change the note title, but the date it was written is displayed and might be enough of a clue to your note.

Not very pretty, but a possible work-around?

Attached is the variant of this notebook. Seems to work fine

Just downloaded your notebook onto my PRS700 and it works great. It looks good too.

Now about my calendar idea, I think it would work just the same if a page was created for each month of the year. One could attach notes/reminders to any day of the month. You could leaf through the months with a swipe of the thumb. Like I said, a bit crude, but when Sony isn't supplying firmware/software updates we will find ways to work-around. This isn't hacking, it's just making the best of what we're given. I like it.

It's a great compliment that you took this to fruition. Thank you.

WDE.

*edit* Even better, can do an exact search on word or phrase within the notes.

Yeah, it is a little bit crude, but we do have to be creative with Sony
Attached is the variant (year-less); a proper calendar may work better. I wish I had more time to play with it...

UPDATE 1: I have made a calendar for 2009 as well! It is attached.

UPDATE 2: One more - a weekly agenda; 52 weeks, so it should be enough for a year; one can add a note to the title of a page, like "June 1-7, 2009," so it may be quickly accessed from the Notes/Bookmarks; then any note can be added to hours.
