This update is only for the Japanese model, and not the one sold in the US. According to Sony, the update adds:
- Handwriting on enlarging images
- Undo / Redo function
- Adding or deleting pages from a PDF
- New Notes templates (basically blank PDFs)An option to prevent users from deleting each other's annotations
- Duplicating files
- Creating and deleting folders
- a New password option,
and more. All in all this is not much of an update; given that this device cost over 1 grand when it launched last summer I would have expected that it would have all of these features already.
