I think that this is very interesting. If this actually gets released, I would definitely buy one. It would be so much easier to carrier around this, and maybe a few sheets of paper and a pen (Hand in assignments and what not), than carrying around four binders + all my text books in school. And it's only $100, which, I think, is a very reasonable price.

So, do any of you think you would have some sort of use for this device? Or would you rather a full out tablet (iPad, Motorola Xoom, etc)?

You can already buy one. The Boogie Board that does that http://www.amazon.com/Boogie-Board-LCD-Writing-Tablet/dp/B002ZE4TDI/ref=sr_1_11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1297195260&sr=1-11

I toyed with the idea, they are neat but I don't like that there is a finite amount of times that it can erase.

It looks really cool, I would love this for taking notes in a class.

My thoughts exactly.

I'd consider it. I don't have a tablet, iPad, eReader, or anything of that size. So something like that is somewhat appealing. Pretty cheap. I'd wait and see how it did on the market first.

I'd use it for class too, I'm pretty sure none of my teachers would object, I'll explain that this way, all the notes get saved, and not chucked in a pile in my room

I would pay that much. I tend to sketch out a lot of my ideas. And I use a lot of paper in the process and I have folders filled with them. I would especially get it if I can transfer the sketches to my computer. This would be helpful in school too. Though I would probably get the NoteSlate Color. (If that is a different model, I am not sure.)

I would buy this. I think it's very interesting and I like the idea of being able to write or sketch something out when it's fresh in my mind and then saving it for later. I tend to loose(misplace)things.

I'd never pay $99 bucks for some oddball tablet running who knows what OS for the purpose of taking notes. If I ever get enough money to afford a tablet, it'll probably be an inexpensive off-brand linux tablet running ubuntu or pclinuxos. Also, I have a perfect note taking app on my $15 dollar dumbphone.

They would be more functional, but wouldn't be allowed in my school. I can't see them having a problem with something like this.

I suppose it would be very useful for getting around some bad rule at some school but it sounds a little expensive to buy just for that.

I guess it depends how you look at it. Personally, I think it's awesome that I could just save all my notes from every class, then come home and print off important notes to study.

Your right, it would be a good present for a student but unless your rich, I don't think it's a good choice to buy it yourself.

(Feb 08 '11 at 15:02) zman zman's gravatar image

I'm definitely not rich, but I do have a prat time job, so saving up $100, wouldn't take too long.

(Feb 08 '11 at 15:55) Justin Justin's gravatar image

I would buy it. I have no problem spending a $100 on something that I can use to take notes and then come home and print off. This would also be good for in school because you could even do your homework and then just print it off and have it done. Without the eraser marks if you go to change something. Sounds good to me.

It's cool if you can afford it but I wouldn't spend the money.

It looks very similar to the boogie board, but I'm not going to pay $99 for it. Even though I am a geek I still like to write things down...on paper. And I can always put notes into my cell phone or MacBook. So, no I wouldn't buy this unless the price comes down.

Update: I just realized it did a little more than I thought it did and is more complicated than the boogie board, but I'm still not tempted to buy it when I can take notes on everything else I have.

It looks interesting, but I would prefer it in full color. The different colored e-ink looks real lame. I can see artists getting this if it was in color.

It looks cool. But I wouldn't buy it unless the price is low. I think these "E-Readers" are hilarious. There is no point in them, a pc, a laptop, and a smartphone all serve as an E-reader. So why waste the money?
