Sony is a very popular company when it comes to creating high-quality and top-notch products. Since they introduced the Walkman, Sony has never wavered in producing functional appliances that make the lives of people easier. It is important to note though that even if Sony is a major player in gadgets and devices, it has not really attempted to join the smartphone and tablet foray. Aside from the Experia line of products, there are no notable portable devices launched by Sony. Not until now. Sony has just reinvented paper.
What is Digital Paper by Sony?
The Digital Paper is a device being developed by Sony to help eliminate the use of papers in educational institutions. This is said to be Sony’s initial step to finally develop a workable tablet. The device features a 13.3 inch flexible screen where anyone can jot down notes and read books. It looks similar with an A4 sized paper, only it is a digital version. Sony’s environmental awareness product is aimed at decreasing the use of paper in the society particularly in educational and business institutions.
What does the Digital Paper offer to the public?
Technically, you cannot call the Digital Paper a tablet. It is more of a useful device where you can write notes and read books. You can also share information via Wi-Fi. Unlike the tablet which has a colored display, this product only has a black and white display similar to those of popular e-readers. The device also has the biggest flexible display in the world, making the device ultra-portable as you can simply roll it up when you want to travel. It is a very efficient device to help increase learning among students.
