Sony unveiled the DPT-CP1 Digital Paper 3 Color Note-taking tablet at the 4th Annual Government & Public Sector Week trade show which was held in the Makuhari Messe Convention Centre in Tokyo, Japan from 24-26 February 2021.
It has 32GB of internal storage and is powered by a Quad-Core A53 Cortex processor that clocks in at 1.8Ghz. It also has 2.4/5Ghz WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 and a USB-C port for charging/connecting.
The device will run on Android 9 but it will probably be closed like the Supernote A5X so you likely won’t be able to sideload apps. The Note-taking app has also been updated and has a slew of new features.
The Sony DPT-CP! Color has a 10.3″ color screen that uses the latest Kaleido 2.5 tech- the first-ever device to use it. And I must say, by looking at the video below it seems the colors are even better than the Kaleido 2 which was used by the recently released color e-ink devices such as Hisense A7CC, Pocketbook Inkpad Color etc.
The Kaleido 2.5 is a color filter array that is placed on top of an (also new) E-ink Carta 1250 screen.The resolution of the color screen is unknown but the B/W one is 1404x1872 pixels at 227 PPI. Kaleido 2 Color was at 100PPI though. It also has a Wacom layer so you can use all kinds of stylus pens on it such as the Staedtler, Samsung S pens etc. The display can also be enhanced by using a Frontlight that has 27 levels of brightness.
Price & Release Date
The device has not been officially released to the public and there is no set date for that yet. It will be launched first in Japan before (if) it will be available for the rest of the World. The price for the DPT Digital Paper 3 is also unknown as of now. This article will get updated when new info is received.
