EeWrite launched its Kickstarter for the ambitious E-Pad Android tablet last night and it took just minutes for the crowdfund to reach its goal. According to the Chinese manufacturer, the project reached $10000 in just under 10 minutes to guarantee all early backers a unit later in the year.
The project is currently sitting at over 250 backers with over $100000 in pledges at the time of writing.
The E-Pad is notable for being a high-end Android tablet with an E-Ink touchscreen. While there have been E-Ink Android tablets in the past, the E-Pad will be the first to support 4G LTE, expandable storage, and WACOM stylus inputs all in one package. EeWrite wants to launch its tablet for $400 to $500 USD by this August.
Check out the Kickstarter page here for more specifications on the device and expect our short review on a pre-production unit soon.

When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
