GVIDO is set to launch their E Ink sheet music reader this Fall called the Digital Music Score, the hardware of which is being manufactured by VAIO. It carries a slate design and has two screens and appears just like a piece of sheet music when unfolded, but unlike an actual piece of sheet music it can store thousands of copies in one slim package thanks to the display and flash storage. It also comes with a stylus pen that interacts with the display so you can make notations on pieces of sheet music if you need to.
The Digital Music Score can hold a ton of digital sheet music, as much as can be stored on 8GB of internal storage space as that's the size of the built-in memory, though it also supports a microSD card so you could have more space if you need it. Sheet music also needs to be stored in PDF format. While the Digital Music Score is a good idea and it certainly helps to modernize the aspect of sheet music for musicians, the device won't come cheap as it will cost $1,600 to pick one up, which is probably more than many consumers are willing to pay.
That said, for anyone that's interested in this particular device it's said to launch on September 20th. For the price and besides the 8GB of internal memory and expandable storage support, the Digital Music Score also comes with dual 13.3-inch displays that sit side by side when open, and it has an infrared touch switch on the edge of the displays to the left and right which is how you interact with it to flip between pages. It has Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n support and it can connect to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, and it weighs about 660g. The device itself only comes in one color which looks to be a black when closed but white on the inside, however it does have a range of accessories available that include the Stylus Pen, some different colored leather cases, and an optional foot switch. In addition to launching in the U.S., the GVIDO Digital Music Score will also be launching in Japan, the UK, Canada, France, Spain, Germany, and Italy and all of those additional regions will see the launch on September 20th as well.
