    Seriously. For some unknown reason even after letting their sync app through the firewall, it still refuses to sync unless I actually turn off the firewall. So now the sync process is: disable all network connections. Turn off firewall. Connect Sony reader. Sync. Turn firewall back on. Reconnect network. All in all just a great experience.

    With Sony getting out of consumer products its service problems will probably only get worse.

    Anybody discounting the Boox 10.3"

    Onyx makes good hardware, but they are clueless when it comes to software. In theory the Note is an interesting piece of hardware, but once you start exposing that hypothesis it begins to fall apart.

    I just discovered that Sony is releasing an update to its firmware for the RP1, it seems odd if they wouldn't also do that for the newer CP1. It will come with an Android app for moving PDF files. It actually looks like they got their act together.

    EMR.
    No pen comes with a battery, but to be honest S-pen is not smooth on an Onyx.

    Those are horrible specs. The Boox Note at least has a decent CPU, some RAM, storage and Android 6. So far, these devices all come with one significant drawback. No HDMI input so you can attach them as a second monitor in case you want to do some outdoor computing.

    FYI the Sony DPT-RP1 seems to have gone down in price. It's $599 on Adorama. It's still too rich for my blood, but for those interested.
