ReMarkable presented the second version of its very particular tablet
: the device is intended for those who prefer to write things in their own handwriting; looking to draw pictures or doodles rather than use a keyboard.
The current alternatives include tablets such as the Apple iPad, a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 or a Microsoft Surface (among other equipment), which allow drawing on a color screen, but which are a double-edged sword: the color screens are spectacular , but Instagram and TikTok are just a tap away.
ReMarkable proposes to your
tablet as an ebook reader
(Its 10-inch screen uses similar technology, and the computer supports PDFs and books in ePub), but it also serves as a notebook, writing on the screen with its pencil, which does not have its own battery and detects 4096 pressure levels. (key information for those who want to draw on screen).
How to use
a system similar to electronic ink
, Remarkable 2 looks like paper (and the computer texture mimics it), can be used outdoors without sunlight hampering your vision, and latency is minimal (the time the screen records the stroke and displays it as pixels); only 21 more, according to the company.
The Remarkable 2 tablet is less than 5 mm thick, a battery whose autonomy allows you about 2 weeks of use and a function that will be very useful: it is able to recognize the handwritten trace and transform it into text, which can then be exported. It also allows you to annotate PDFs and read texts sent from the Web. Use a Linux-based operating system, and limit the available applications to those offered by the manufacturer, to limit possible distractions.
Achieving all this is not cheap: the Remarkable 2 tablet
be available mid-year
for a price close to 400 dollars in the northern hemisphere.
