Office workers usually have to fight with the mountains of papers stacked up on their desk. Every piece of information is printed on A4 paper and placed at their work space. The sheer mass of physical paper usually overwhelms them, making them hope for a change. Sony’s E-Ink Digital Paper tablet could be the change they were waiting for.
In order to solve the problem of the mountains of paperwork office workers are forced to endure each day, Sony came up with a new invention. Their Digital Paper Tablet was designed with “desk-bound professionals” in mind. It uses the E-Ink display to mimic an A4 piece of paper.
Desk-bound professionals such as lawyers and government officials still work in an environment where mostly everything is paper based. In order to rectify this, the Digital Paper Tablet was designed to convert Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel files into PDF format. Moreover, with the help of USB and Wi-Fi connectivity, these files can be shared between colleagues with ease. That makes the entire process faster.
Bob Nell, director of Digital Paper Solutions of Sony Electronics, explained that: “This is a true replacement for the vast amounts of paper that continue to clutter many offices and institutions.” He continued further, talking about the benefits of the new tablet: “It is very easy to use and optimized for reading and annotating contracts, white papers, scholarly articles and legislation.”
The Digital Paper Tablet has a 13.3 inch E-Ink Mobius screen. It also comes with a stylus in order to encourage a more natural writing style. It has 4 GB of internal storage and also a MicroSD card slot. The tablet is going to be one of the slimmest and lightest tablets on the market. It will be out in May and has a suggested price tag of $1,100. Would you buy it?
