The Fujitsu Quaderno A4 2nd Generation is a brand new product that was just released in June 2021. It is a digital note taking device that is primarily geared towards freehand drawing, taking notes and viewing/editing PDF files. Compared to the original Quaderno A4, it is thinner, more lightweight and has a WACOM screen, so pen latency has been improved by over 30%. In addition, the latest E Ink display is adopted for the first time in the world. With the significant power-up of the CPU, the reaction speed such as page turning has also improved by about 20%. The model number is FMVDP41.
The Fujitsu Quaderno A4 is using E INK Carta 1250, which is the first device to use this new screen technology. The device features a 13.3 inch E INK display with a resolution of 1650 x 2200 with 207 PPI. The screen is capacitive, so you can use your finger to interact with it and for the first time, Fujitsu is utilizing a WACOM display. You can assign your favorite functions to the side buttons and tail switch of the stylus pen. You can freely select from five functions: red pen, eraser, highlight, range selection, and enlargement. For example, if you assign an eraser to the tail switch, you can erase handwriting in a natural way.
Underneath the hood is a Cortex A53 Quad-core 1.8 GHZ processor, 32GB of internal storage, which is good for storing around 10,000 PDF files and 4GB of RAM. It has a USB-C port, which is great for people who want one cable for all of their devices. It has WIFI, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC support for FeliCa (screen unlock) and NFC Forum Type 4 Tag (easy connection with QUADERNO Mobile App). You will easily get up to 4 weeks of usage before you have to recharge it.
