The Hanvon N10 is a brand new digital note-taking device that has English! This is tremendous news because this is their first model that doesn’t exclusively have Chinese on it. Hanvon claims it to be as thin as paper, allowing for a more natural feel when writing.
The N10 features a 10.3 inch E INK Carta HD display with a resolution of 1872×1404 with 227 PPI. Underneath the hood is a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of LPDDR4X memory, 64GB of storage, a USB Type-C port, dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 5.0 support and is powered by an utterly massive 6,000 mAh battery, Hanvon says you should be able to get 120 days of standby battery life. Battery consumption is reduced to 50 mAh for an entire day when kept in sleep mode.
Coming to the design, the N10 looks alluring and fresh. The bezels on all three sizes as well as the left spine is quite thin, which ups the style quotient considerably. Also, at 374 grams and a depth of 5.5 mm, the N10 is also among the lightest and thinnest e-notes around. The N10 also includes a total of nine buttons on the left edge of which Hanvon said eight buttons are user-customizable. For instance, you can easily set one button to initiate the handwritten book or use another to set the page-turning speed and so on.
Another highlight of the new N10 is the Solanum violet electromagnetic pen that the e-note device comes with. Hanvon said the pen has been entirely an in-house development and supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Also, there is no need to recharge the pen. Instead, it comes with replacement refills which negates the need to recharge the pen at regular intervals. On the software side of things, there is optical character recognition (OCR) software, among other things. So in addition to allowing you to draw pictures and take handwritten notes, the tablet includes software that can convert pictures or PDF files into text files that you can edit or annotate and then save and export.
