Engadget writes about the NoteSlate, a concept of a $99 touchable slate with a 13" 750 x 1080 pixel "eInk" screen. The device features touch or pen input and will supposedly be available in June. There will be two editions: one with a white background and black foreground and also one with a black background and white foreground. Additionally, the company also promises that green, blue, or red text, as well as a 4 color edition will be released in the future.
Sounds quite interesting, but just like Engadget I have the feeling that it's a bit too good to be true.
When it's produced, supposedly by June, you'll be able to select from the traditional white background and black foreground or go with a black background with white. Other colors, including green, blue, or red text, or a "4 colour edition" that does all of them at once, are due sometime down the road. The tablet works with touch or pen input, will offer 180 hours of battery life, and is to be fully open-source, with the initial software release supporting simple drawing, storing of notes, and MP3 playback. Version 1.5 will add PDF and text viewing, while version 2.0 will be rocking OCR handwriting recognition.
