Something of a cross between a Kindle and a Wacom tablet, the reMarkable tablet seeks to replace your trusty pen and paper for reading, writing, and sketching.

The reMarkable tablet might look like a cross between an iPad, Kindle, and Wacom tablet, but it is looking to create a niche of its very own: replacing your pen and paper.

reMarkable is marketing the plastic 10.3" 1872 x 1404 (226 DPI) tablet for reading, annotation, notes, and sketching. To facilitate this, the reMarkable features a touchscreen and active stylus with 2048 levels of sensitivity, making it unique among e-ink devices at this moment.

Because e-ink is a technology designed to be quite similar to paper in terms of appearance, it results in less blue-light fatigue. This may make it an attractive gadget for road-warriors frequently reading, annotating, or sketching on the go.

In terms of technical and physical specs, the reMarkable measures 10.2 ” x 6.9″ x .26″ and weighs 12 oz. It sports a 1 Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB on-board storage—all powered by a 3000 mAh battery. The device runs a custom Linux OS and has micro USB and Wi-Fi for connectivity. Unfortunately, there are no storage expansion slots.

Although the device is slated to ship in Summer 2017, pre-ordering soon will get you the tablet, sleeve, and pen all for $379. At release, reMarkable will sell for $529 for the tablet itself. The pen and sleeve will cost you another $79 each.
