reMarkable: the versatility of paper in a tablet that is also an e-reader

The "canvas" display device called reMarkable combines the flexibility of paper with the electronic convenience of a tablet.

The device that combines paper flexibility with the electronic convenience of a tablet is called reMarkable. Although other companies have already tried to create similar technology devices, the slow updating frequencies of the paper displays have not given the desired results. This type of problem is solved by reMarkable thanks to what it defines a "canvas" display. The 10.3-inch screen, reminiscent of a Kindle, not only looks like paper, but also offers a very low latency of 55 ms, which means that it is possible to write or draw only with a slight delay, almost in real time In terms of technical specifications the reMarkable has an internal 8GB memory and runs on Codex, a Linux operating system optimized for e-paper. It weighs 350 grams, and obviously much heavier than a normal block of sheets, but always less than an iPad mini. The battery lasts about a couple of days e it has no glass parts and precisely in this it seems that reMarkable has succeeded in the attempt to balance at best both the portability and the resistance. We are still far from an equivalence between the paper-tablet and the actual paper, but the pluses are considerable: a synchronization of the notes and of the dedicated cloud notes, the ease of sharing with other devices and in addition a realistic answer when writing on the digital tablet. sharing with the created files, it will be possible to import documents, textbooks, but also to add annotations on existing files. Currently only PDF and ePub files are supported, but reMarkable lets you know that other compatible formats will be added soon. Moreover, reMarkable allows you to write or draw on a device and that what is imprinted on the tablet appears synchronized on the devices connected to it and think how useful it could be both in schools and in offices! This technology is quite expensive, in fact, reMarkable in presale it has a discounted price of 379 dollars. The advance purchase will allow you to enjoy the first limited edition that includes the pen, case folio and shipments. The retail price will subsequently be $ 529, almost double. The pen will cost 79 dollars and always 79 dollars will be the cost of the folio case. Deliveries are scheduled for summer 2017.
