So an active pen means higher precision, this is something that I have a problem with now, when I try to write on the edges the location and accuracy is messed up.

Also two button on the pen instead of one, which mean no need to switch between erase and highlight from the menu, cool!

I like how they made the pen clips now on both sides of the reader, nice touch. and the bezel seems lower to my eye.

And! translated from the website, you can have the document and notes side by side!!!

Quote:
Work side by side with documents

Utilizing a wide screen, you can work efficiently on two screens

Various 2 screen display function is installed. Reading and writing work such as comparing documents, referring to different pages, writing to notes while reading documents, viewing facing documents, and so on will be advanced.

Cool, we can bookmark pages by drawing a star

Quote:
If "Mark" is handwritten, you can search the page you want to read and open it immediately

When reading a document and thinking "this is important" "I want to read here later", I quickly handwritten the mark of ☆ or *. Even documents with a large number of pages, you can quickly open marked areas. When combined with the document file search function with keywords such as file name, you can search and view documents you want to read without stress.

The questions that remain to be answered:

1. How much of a difference 150 vs 205 PPI?
2. Does it come in black?
3. Did they fix the zoom in the software? currently, if I zoom I miss some features + black ugly needless bar at the bottom.
4. Did they introduce crop? or even a better way to zoom and save it as a preset.
5. Does it make a coffee and take the children to the school? (not that I have any)

I can't wait for a video review

No, it's an eInk device (or some similar technology, anyway). Such screens are opaque and hence can't be backlit (and a 13.3" screen is far too big for a frontlight).

I don't know about that. The Kobo Aura fires it's light across about 7 1/2" of screen (not including bezel) and the new Sony is only 8.8" wide (including bezel). Not a stretch to go that much farther. Of course, you might take a fair hit on your battery life with the number of lights to required to cover the height of the device.

It's getting even illumination that's the issue for large screens. I don't think there are any devices with screens larger than 8" that are illuminated, are there?

Actually i used 'Insert Image' but not the 'Attachments' in the editing toolbar. I found putting images as attachments would show them at the bottom of the post while as using 'Insert Image' would show them between words.

Even though the image seemed a bit too big and weird (i didn't find how to adjust the size of it, it only requires a link), i chose to put them with words cause it seemed normal to me.

I think this restriction

I would say that the problem is not only size, but also geometry. The largest devices are being built with flexible screens, and I would have to believe that bending the screen would really distort the evenness of the lighting. It would make it very distracting to read when held in the hands.

Not that I know of. But that's my point -- it's not really that big of stretch to go from Kobo Aura 1 pushing the light evenly 7 1/2" up from the bottom*, to pushing it evenly ACROSS the less than 8.8" of the Sony device. Obviously it will require more LED's, but I don't see that really being anything other than a battery issue.

* - any significant blotchiness on the KA1 seems to be with the red lighting, not the basic "normal" lighting.

That's plausible, but the frames of current small devices aren't completely rigid, so there is obviously some tolerance for flex. And I can't image the new devices flexing that much more (albeit the deflection across the larger device would be more) under normal use.

It says battery will last for three weeks at the longest. The whole video was clearly focused on the corporate market, but let's hope it will be available at consumer oriented stores as well.

I am really curious about their processing units setup - quad core processor plus extra processing units - it seems like hand-crafted for e-ink and Sony's dedicated solution. I expect much lower latency, I wonder how low. In video page refresh looks great, but writing is still a little laggish IMHO..

Remarkable is teasing everyone with their latency being 50-60 ms - which would be on par with tablets and phones. Wonder if Sony can procide similar performance without legendary imx.7..

Btw Of all possible special symbols the decided to use "David Star" symbol as special symbol - I sense trouble from Jewish communities...
