Sony DPT-S1 Back in Stock

Sony’s 13″ writing slate is back in stock again this week at Amazon and B&H Photo.

The DPT-S1 had gone out of stock in August following a sale, and that had lead to speculation that it was either discontinued or had been replaced, but now it appears it was merely in short supply.


It is listed at $799 on both sites, or about $200 more than the sale price from earlier this year. It’s still a good value at the higher price – if you need a very light writing slate which can only support PDFs on its 13.3″ screen.

That’s not an backhanded compliment; this was always a niche product for the business market, and is not intended for widespread use.

    Nate Please go after Sony for no supporting their ereaders. After years of using my PRS-T1I cannot download books from the library because once I connect to the internet and go to the saved libraries it always goes to original Sonny Announcement they were shutting down Sny ebookstoreand go to Kobo. If they won’t support any of their last ereaders why should anyone buy a Sony erader
