I just wish they had thought of something to make this device usable for text processing. With bluetooth it would be great if one could pair it with a keyboard. I'm doing a lot of writing (programming especially) and being able to do this on a paper like screen would be a dream coming true for me.

I don't want to spam this thread, but I just saw video from Hongkong show from Onyx and it leaves new Sony e-reader way behind.

For a similar price you get so much more, mainly Android and possibility of a screen mirroring. The latency seems really nice as well.

Supporting only pdfs in 2017 is like a slap in the face for e-ink enthusiasts around the world.

It's aimed at a different market. This is a device specifically for business users, for reading and annotating documents. The Onyx device is a general-purpose computer, but is significantly heavier. There's room in the market for both.

PDF is still the dominant format is many fields. Don't think it's obsolete .

I know that no one has one in hand yet, but assuming this model handles PDFs like the previous version, I have two questions:

1. Does it work with password protected PDFs?
2. Does it work with embedded fonts?


Thanks!

True, Onyx is heavier but both devices are so big that one have to use both hands to use them or leave it on a flat surface. Even with Sony's 350g it is very uncomfortable to hold it in one hand and scrible using second. If you have to use two hands then 150g does not make any difference.

I didn't say that pdf format is obsolete, I said that devices that only handle pdfs are obsolete.

Many people will buy it because it has Sony label on it but when you compare it with Onyx Max - you get much less with Sony for a similar price tag.

I am happy that Sony is back in the game but this product seems simply outdated by today's market standards.

We don't know enough about the new Sony device yet. Maybe you can root it install a custom Android ROM and run regular apps including connecting a Bluetooth keyboard.

I'd buy one. I bought my 12.9" iPad Pro for the specific purpose of reading PDFs.

Evreybody who used the Onyx devices in the past is HAPPY to finally use the Sony.
The 13.3 inch Onyx is a nice toy, finally.
The 9.7 inch units where crappy, heavy things with writing technology from the stone age!

The Sony is an easy and reliable tool and of course I trust Sony much much more than those Chinese copycats

Interesting. It used to be the Japanese makers that were accused of being copycats.
