Australian T3 - - HYPE -

What’s this, T3 ? It’s a dig­i­tal jour­nal. A con­nected sketch­pad. An up­mar­ket e-reader. The blank can­vas for that novel you’re long­ing to write. The Re­Mark­able is a tablet with a pa­per-es­que, glare-free dis­play called Can­vas, which com­bines E Ink Carta tech with ul­tra-thin, high-fric­tion sur­face ma­te­ri­als to de­liver a pre­mium read­ing, writ­ing and sketch­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Sounds fancy. So I can draw and scrib­ble all over it? Yes, but not with your crayons; the Re­Mark­able pre-or­der bun­dle comes with The Marker, a sty­lus that en­ables you to quickly put black digi ink on digi pa­per. The tip has been de­signed with the op­ti­mum amount of fric­tion to repli­cate a pen-on-pa­per ex­pe­ri­ence, and you don’t need to set it up via Blue­tooth or even charge it. There’s also a va­ri­ety of brushes for you to sketch with. Can I read and edit work doc­u­ments on this thing? Of course. Via the Re­Mark­able app, you can share notes and doc­u­ments in­stantly, wire­lessly trans­fer­ring PDFs, ePubs and more. You can also or­gan­ise mul­ti­ple note­books on the Re­Mark­able and cre­ate new notes via a va­ri­ety of tem­plates. There are sev­eral tools for re­view­ing doc­u­ments, too, such as a high­lighter and tags. When’s it out? The Re­Mark­able is avail­able for pre-or­der now, at a spe­cial price of US$429 ($560), with ship­ping to be­gin in Au­gust.

FULL-BOD­IED The Re­Mark­able pa­per tablet is over twice the size of the av­er­age e-reader, so you have more dis­play to play with. If you use it for around two to three hours a day, the bat­tery should last a week ZERO DIS­TRAC­TIONS The Re­Mark­able fea­tures no Web-brows­ing func­tion­al­ity – so you’re not go­ing to be dis­tracted by tweets, Face­book or ran­dom emails
