Why put all that effort into parsing one word processor's output and translating it to PDF on the device, when the word processor can do that itself? You're bound to get it wrong on the device, you add to the cost of the device when the software development costs are factored in, you risk annoying everyone else who uses a different word processor, and you still just output an annotated PDF file at the end anyway. Sony have enough trouble producing a usable PDF application for the device, I don't see them taking on this gigantic software task just to save people the small effort of exporting their documents to PDF in their native applications.

Sony is now showing DPT-CP1 at their exhibition. Disappointingly its firmware is exactly the same as that of DPT-RP1, still lacking table of contents.

It was reported that Sony was showing prototype.
Did you examine firmware number?
New firmware is coming.

1. Flexible plastic light EInk display with NO GLASS (only 32g).
2. SMALL battery.
3. Only 5.9mm thin.
4. Designed in Japan.

I asked one who went to the exhibition because I'm not living in Japan. He said the firmware is exactly the same with the current DPT-RP1 firmware.
