Now we're almost 1 year later, and still no fix, and 0 updates. Little naive on Sony?

How to buy Sony DPT RP1 in EU

Hey all, I would like to buy Sony DPT RP1 in EU but it seems to be impossible. Though on ebay there are some guys sell it but I is quite expensive and there are some reasons Paypal just allows me to spend a little amount of money.

Any suggestion?

Hi, it is now get sold through Amazon.co.uk. Obviously, as UK is still an EU member you can buy it without import fees.

It's not cheap but you have the European warranty.

Not sure if you can buy from somewhere else within EU. I bought mine when I visited Japan 6 months ago and I'm satisfied with it. If they improve the software to contemporary standards, it will be a really good product for its purpose.

Yeah. I looked at this too and do not know much about this seller. I will try to read comment about the seller.

I watched many reviews about RP1. It seems to be suitable for me. Thank you.

Has anyone successfully returned one of these to Amazon?

I'm pretty sure it will meet my needs, but it's nice to know that I have the option of returning it if it ends up not working out.

Hi,

I am about buying the Sony DPT-RP1. The only thing that makes me still doubt is the cost and duration of the pen tips.
Can someone tell me which of the two types of tips last more?.
And also, how many hours I can approximately write with one of those tips?

I have had the RP1 for around 2 months. I'm using it mainly for reading and annotation. I also use it for note writing, maybe 1-2 pages a day. I'm still on my first tip. Well, second, because I dropped the pen once. Now I use a cap for the pen. From time to time the tip feels too sharp, and then I rub it on a piece of cloth, and all is good. Compared to a new tip, I'd say I wore 1/3 off. I'm not sure how far down it will still work.
I prefer the Pom tips - the writing is smoother.

Note: I use a DPT-S1, not a DPTRP1, so my 2¢ here may be completely irrelevant. I know there've been some very significant stylus changes made between the two versions.

In my opinion, you're asking a really important question. We pay alot for these devices and are entitled to expect them to last a long time. It seems that Sony is in the planned obsolescence game as they discontinued the tips for the DPT-S1 stylus shortly after the device launched. If someone knows otherwise, I'd love to know where to buy these.

I blew through the felt tips (both versions). As a very rough estimate I'm not prepared to commit to I'd say I could've been using a tip maybe every 3 months of heavy use. I use my DPT-S1 almost exclusively for annotation, but do acknowledge that I press fairly hard.

That said, after finding out that the tips were discontinued I switched to a rubber tip and haven't had to change it since. The feeling is not quite as nice to write with, but for my purposes the difference is negligible.

Look at this! New firmware update and iOS and Android apps will be released to allow you to transfer to the RP1 without the use of a computer! Awesome.

"Dear Friends of Sony Digital Paper,

Thank you for your purchase and ongoing support and feedback.

Sony is pleased to announce a firmware update for your DPT-RP1, as well as a new mobile application for Android™ and iOS. The Sony Digital Paper Mobile Application will allow you to transfer files to and from the Digital Paper anywhere, anytime, without the need of a computer. The free app will be available in June from both Google Play and the Apple App Store.

New features and functions made possible by the DPT-RP1 firmware update include:

• Screen Capture/Display Output Mode—connect via PC or Mac to a projector and display the contents on the Digital Paper screen, including real-time handwriting and mark-up, to a larger audience

• Interactive PDF and Smart Forms—populate forms using drop-down menus, check boxes and radio buttons for easy, structured data capture

• Page Jump—enter a page number and go directly to that specific page

• Pan and Zoom—move the display area after a page or portion of the page has been enlarged

• Automatic Page Rotation—pages from a document, book or article will automatically rotate as needed to optimize the reading experience

• Page Thumbnails Mode—view 16 pages of a document, book or article at one time

The firmware update will be available to all owners of DPT-RP1 starting on May 30, 2018."

Android app is a welcome development! I wonder if the firmware delay was due to the IOS and Android app approval process.... anyhow, happy we are finally getting an update.

The one feature that I would still like is mirroring the PC screen on the Sony. If they are enabling the mirroring of the Sony on a PC, surely the reverse is possible!

I don't think so. Anyway, the mobile app will be not available when the update releases. They said it will be sometime in June.

For mirroring, I would say don't expect too much. There are more expensive e-ink monitors but they are not yet practical in any sense.

Awesome indeed. That makes it extra mysterious why they decided to pi** everybody off by not informing that things were progressing. The silence on the official support forum was pretty frustrating.
