Stated to not be available until June, the $99 tablet for taking “digi-notes” won’t necessarily compete with the iPad, and that’s not the point. At least I don’t think so. The idea is something that has been exaggerated about for years in movies and publications, now we are finally shedding some light on an actual product.
It will come in the standard black on white, white on black, and blue, green, or red text and pictures. 13 inches tall with a 750 x 1080 pixel display, weighs about half a pound and apparently 180 hours of battery life make this this something completely worth $99 in my opinion.
I’m sure these things will be in classrooms all over campus come next semester. In the future the developer is going to produce an operating system that supports PDF files and OCR compatibility. Which is basically text recognition for converting written notes to plain text. Enjoy the product shots, and if you’re like me you can’t wait to enjoy the product when its creators release it.
