A UK-based business reMarkable on Monday started shipping what might best be described as an “untablet” — a device that is, essentially, an electronic piece of paper. The company is proud of its ‘paper tablet’s simplicity’, boasting that “no other tablet has fewer functionalities,” Tech News World reported. reMarkable users cannot install apps, watch videos or take photos. What they can do is read, write and sketch on a paper-like surface with a modern twist. Among reMarkable’s digital powers are a 10.3-inch monochrome digital paper display with 1872 x 1404 resolution, marker pen with a high-friction tip and tilt detection -- no battery or pairing required, WiFi connectivity, 8 GB of internal storage -- the equivalent of 100,000 pages, Codex Linux-based operating system, optimized for e-paper, and Support for PDF and ePub document formats. The purchase price is $599 for the reMarkable paper tablet, marker, marker tips and cable. More than 35,000 units already have been sold, according to the company.
