The 10.3 inch ReMarkable ereader has been in development for many years and the company has announced that they will begin shipping 11,000 units to people who pre-ordered in on August 29th.This dedicated note taking device has garnered a tremendous amount of buzz, primarily due to their high-friction pen tip that has over 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, but it costs extra.
The reMarkable e-reader features a 10.3 inch E-Ink Carta display with a resolution of 1872×1404 and 226 DPI. The company is hyping up screen technology called CANVAS which is designed to increase the refresh speed of the e-paper display, which I think is just a glorified A2 mode.
Underneath the hood is a 1 GHZ Arm A9 processor, 8 GB internal storage and 512MB of RAM. It has wireless internet access and a 3,000mAh battery. This e-reader will read EPUB and PDF files, but will not read DRM books. So if you want to use this as an e-reader you won’t be able to read library books or books you have purchased from other online retailers.
