Eve will launch its "last chance" to buy its first crowd-designed tablet, the V, soon. The company will sell the core i7, 16GB RAM variant of this product at less than US$800 on this date. However, the actual delivery of the same has been surrounded by controversy in the past; furthermore, it is to get a 2nd generation soon.

Eve has announced a "last chance" event for those still interested in its first-generation V tablet (with keyboard). This one-time "Surface killer" had been touted as a more cost-effective to get a powerful 2-in-1 at a competitive price compared to Microsoft's then-current model. This was the Pro 6, which had started at just over US$2000 back then. The V's top-end model, on the other hand, had been set at $1399 for comparable specs and performance (on paper, at least).

This could have been a considerable blow to the Redmond company - had its maker been associated with better fulfilment and competence, that is. Numerous fans of the nascent brand subsequently asserted that they never received their orders, an issue that dogged the Eve V through the rest of its life as a marketed product.

However, the company claims to have undergone a comprehensive overhaul in terms of its supply and shipment practices. Therefore, it remains to be seen how it goes for this last batch of Vs when they go on sale. This will occur on Monday, February 24, 2020 from 17:00 Eastern European Time (EET, or 15:00 GMT).

At this time, SKUs with the Kaby Lake-based Core i7-7Y75 SoC, 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSDs will be listed for $779, whereas they are $849 at present. Therefore, it could be a pretty good deal - presuming they are delivered in good time. In addition, this product's successor, said to be powered with Tiger Lake silicon this time, has been confirmed as on the way.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
