    Yup, who would have ever guessed there was such a thing as the American Bar Association Tech Show?

    360kb.:). Actually, legal tech has been the gathering of "paperless practice" attorneys for years. To get back to the original point, the Sony digital paper tablet looks interesting but I'm not sure it is an optimal size for me. If it came in an 8.5 x 11 and would fit in a leather folio, it would interest me more as a reader. I do like the outside capability. Funny thing is that I don't think the price is a prohibition. Lawyers who spend $500 for a pen would have no problem shelling out $1,100 for the latest tech. It would be nice to see cases and documents in full screen.

    For a lawyer the $1.100 is a deductible, right? SO I don't Think the price is too high except as a pure consumer Product. They are very popular in Japan amongst University students. Many opt for one of these instead of an iPad.

    Yep.:cool: The problem for me is that I would still have to have a phone and full windows tablet. This unit would just replace the paper itself. Still, to be able to read and edit full sized pages is tempting.

    Very very cool product. As someone who is always on the lookout for an excuse to buy new tech, obviously I'm going to need to be able to annotate PDFs on the beach. Even better, it basically wouldn't serve any other purpose, so I get to keep all my other tech. It's not backlit, so I can even keep my kindle paperwhite for early evening outdoor reading. :)

    Thanks for the heads up - looks like a full size (letter) sheet of paper - but it still suffers from the e-ink "flash" effect, and the price coupled with single use focus is going to sideline it I'm afraid (lawyers notwithstanding).

    BTW - Bronsky actually has an upscale system - try mine:
