Sony is going to be releasing an update to its second Digital Paper ereader this spring, and they are adding some pretty basic features.
- Scrolling: You can now shift the screen up, down, left and right with your finger to any position. You can browse the page freely while enlarging it.
- Jump to any page directly: Like DPT-S1, it is now possible to specify arbitrary pages with numbers and open them.
- External monitor: You can mirror the DPT-RP1's screen to a large - sized display device via a PC with the new version of the Digital Paper companion app that is going to be released at the same time as the new new firmware. You will be able to manipulate the screen of the DPT-RP1, and immediately see the changes on the larger screen.
The new support for external displays is nice, but scrolling and jumping to specific pages are two features that all ereaders had six or eight years ago.
