Exactly my reasoning. I desperately want an E-Ink screen for programming (espcially outside, it's nice to have a non-reflective screen). I've been following the Onyx threads a bit and it appears they did manage to install VPN, however, the performance ought to be horrible compared what would be possible with a proper E-Ink driver (or possibly even dedicated to text processing). The thing with Onyx is that they prefer Quantity over Quality. A ton of features, mostly buggy, horrible UI and sub-par performance. But I would buy a device for 800$ even if it could *only* be an external screen, but be good at that. Just like I bought the DPT-S1 for 1000$ even thought it is "only" a PDF reader (which IMO is all anyone ever needs if they know how to use a computer to convert between formwats) but a darn good one at that, for what it's worth.

Does anyone know if the previous model ever was rooted? It would be fantastic if you could run a late Android on it.

I just wish it had come with an HDMI port so I could stick one of those Android on a stick devices in it and run full Android, or Windows, on it.

It went around that someone did? Though only hearsay, I haven't seen any proof of it.You should know though that the DPT-S1 is a Linux, so I don't think someone (can) put Android it on it, unless they manage to port the proprietary drivers.

DPT-S1 runs on Android 2.2.1. Has been hardware jailbroken/unlocked.

Hope for same with DPT-RP1.

I never had the opportunity to use the predecessor of the Sony. Currently I'm using my iPad Pro 12.9" for note-taking (NoteShelf) and reading PDFs. I'm a software developer and mainly read technical PDF documents...

A nice alternative to the iPad is always welcome

1. How solid are the Sony's PDF features (how good have they been with the predecessor?). Cropping margins / remaining that crop on page turn, searching in PDFs, etc.?
2. Is this only for taking notes / annotations within PDF - or can we expect a generic notetaking application?

I'm considering this device. Does anyone from Europa have experience with charging the previous version (DPT-S1)? Can it be charged from an european computer? Or did the device come with an universal power adaptor? I know I need a plug adaptor, but I probably need to convert the voltage and frequency too, since we use 230 V/50 Hz in Norway, while 120 V/60 Hz is used in US.

Isn't it charged via Micro USB?

I think the device must be rated for the outlet's voltage, or you will risk damaging the device. I don't know if the US version of the digital paper is rated for european voltages. As far as I know, the device is not even sold in Europe.

I think I figured it out though. According to mobileread's wikipage about Sony DPT-S1, the AC adaptor included can handle european voltages:
Quote:
AC adapter: Input: AC 100-240V 50/60Hz 0.2A Output: DC 5V 1000mA
So the only needed accessory is a simple plug adaptor.

I still don't know if it's safe to charge the device from the pc.

It's a standard microUSB connector. Any USB charger will work fine. No need for plug adapters.

first, i think that this device is a crowd-funded project. so there's no guarantee that it will actually get produced. i've been burned by the meetearl project and i'm not going to do the same again. so i would rather wait for the device to be released before i would consider it. i believe that only those willing to pre-order now will get the $479 price. those who do not order now and purchase at release time will most likely pay close to $700 to get the device and the stylus. at this price point, i would rather go for the sony device for its larger size, features (even without epub support), and reputation.

and sony's plan to release in june will definitely affect reMarkable's plans. i remember clamoring for the plastic logic que when the apple ipad was announced. and as we know, the ipad killed the que.

Hi olav, I'm from Italy (220 V, 50 Hz) and I bought the DTS-S1 one year ago. I always charge it with my pc by the usb port. It works with no problem aT all. Since I bought the US version from a US shop, the device came with a US power charger inside.

Regarding the reMarkable tablet, I preordered one, and they send update from time to time, last one was yesterday, they say (long email short)

Quote:
just a few days ago, we invited an illustrator and a film crew, to shoot some of the features of the reMarkable. In a few weeks time, we will reveal this footage and show you how quickly the display reacts to the pen input, and how sketching, writing and organizing files works on our device.
They attached these photos

Photo 1
Photo 2
Photo 3

Now, I would advice to get the Sony, I'm using the first DPT-S1 and it's great, it real product, and the quality is the best in the market, the new one looks great and responsive, the reMarkable tablet has yet to prove itself and won't be available before August, and that's only for those who preordered, I should get mine September.
