I am still messing with this thing sent down by RocketXL. But it took someone else to point out,as they sat across the table from me, that the screen was not reflective. The sort of blinding obvious quality I would have liked to think I would have picked up but had not. Maybe I was too distracted by trying to get my head around Sony’s software. I was showing a couple of folk in our writers group what this gadget was about. As it lay on the table Michael was intrigued that this photo still looked as sharp and resolved at the acute angle from which he was viewing it, as when we was looked at it at right angles. Turns out, no matter which way you angel this thing you still have a very clear image. The reader also presents images very clearly and with such a fine granularity you are tempted to imagine you are looking at a wet film print. Sony of course (of course) goes to some length to brag about its new screen technology on its website but I am not the sort to tune into those sort of technology claims – at least until I have experienced it myself. It is not quite the same as reading off paper but this non reflective surface is the nearest I have seen any screen technology come to mimicking paper. As one of the group noted all Sony needs to do now is to package up a bottle of “old book smell” spray and the offering will be complete.
