Notebook Lust: Introducing NoteSlate
February 22, 2011 § 1 Comment
When it comes to typing vs. writing longhand, preferences vary widely. Some people feel that typing is the more efficient way to get the words flowing. Others, on the other hand, still feel that there’s nothing quite like good old pen and paper.
This dispute may very well come to an end with the release of NoteSlate — an e-paper tablet that lets you write, sketch, diagram, or doodle to your heart’s content.
It has a whopping 180 hours of battery life and saves all your scribblings via a mini-USB port and an SD card slot, all for $99. And with it comes the Notes Late network that lets you add a whole bunch of extensions to make you even more productive. The are even optional upgrades for wi-fi and mp3 playback, plus future upgrades to view PDF files and incorporate text recognition.
Oh, and did I tell you it comes in different colors?
Gadget lust *ON*.
Honestly, I don’t need another gadget. But as an avid notebook hoarder and as someone who is starting to worry about our forests, I have to say I’m pretty intrigued.
