The reMarkable ‘untablet’ that we all needed

Absorbed in technology these days a lot of people stopped using simple tools like pen and paper, and some of us actually miss that. When you are working with a lot of documents and different types of files, of course, the easiest option is to work on your computer and save everything on designated drivers and servers. Your other option is to bury yourself in tons of paper, which you can easily lose, but we all know that no one works (at least no one wants to) "old style" anymore.

Thankfully there are other people (but me) who miss the "pen and paper style" and here comes the reMarkable "untablet". This device is an electronic piece of paper with outstanding simplicity. According to the company, there is no other tablet with fewer functionalities: you cannot watch videos or take photos, instal apps or check your social media sites. All you can do is write, read or sketch on its paper-like surface.

Here are some of its features, that attracted so many people so far:
- 177 x 256 x 6.7mm (6.9 x 10.1 x .26 inches), approximately 350 gram (.77 pounds);
- combined cutting-edge E Ink Carta technology with ultra-thin high-friction surface materials, the CANVAS display is a purebred paper experience;
- 10.3” monochrome digital paper display (no colours), 1872x1404 resolution (226 DPI);
- a marker pen with a high-friction tip and tilt detection (no battery or pairing required);
- the CANVAS display actually transfers physical ink particles to the surface when you write, and the Marker supports over 2048 levels of pressure detection;
- 8 GB internal storage (100,000 pages), 512 MB DDR3L RAM;
- Rechargeable (Micro USB) battery, 3000 mAh;
- 1 GHz ARM A9 CPU;
- Codex, a custom Linux-based OS optimized for low-latency e-paper;
- Wi-Fi connectivity;

Hitherto the device is available with English only and restricted document support, but more options will be announced soon.

You can also transfer all of your files quickly and wirelessly to reMarkable, all of your work is secured with a cloud backup service and all changes are instantly synchronised on all of your devices.

According to the company, more than 35 000 units have been already sold. Currently, the price is £579 and you can preorder for shipping in November.

The reactions are full of excitement, especially among artists, writers and "paper people" in general. But despite that, critics believe it will be a hard sell, because of the high price and fewer functionalities. Still, if reMarkable can help you work efficiently and satisfy your inner paper needs, I believe it's worth it.
