The Kindle Scribe is a new e-ink tablet that Amazon has announced
Today, Amazon is hosting a press conference to introduce some new products. The Kindle Scribe, a new e-ink tablet from the brand, was among the first things to be unveiled during the event.
The Kindle Scribe combines the greatest features of Amazon’s Kindle tablets and e-readers to create a reading and writing device. It is the company’s most recent attempt to realize its ultimate objective with the Kindle line—to develop a product that is as adaptable and simple to use as paper.
The brand-new tablet has a 10.2-inch e-ink display and a stylus that can be attached to either side of the gadget. There are two alternatives here: a “Basic Pen” and a “Premium Pen,” which will cost $30 extra. The high-end pen will have an eraser sensor on the top and a programmable shortcut button.
New note-taking features will also be included with the Scribe. In the same way that you would highlight a paragraph or enter a note using the on-screen keyboard, a user will be able to tap on it and make a note.
Amazon measures the battery life in weeks rather than hours. The Scribe’s battery life will last up to 12 weeks, according to the manufacturer. This evaluation is predicated on daily tablet reading for 30 minutes. Instead, if you write for a half-hour, you may expect a battery life of around three weeks.
Starting today, you may place a preorder for the Kindle Scribe. It will cost you $339.99 in the US and $429.00 CAD to purchase one for yourself. According to Amazon, the device is planned to launch this year.
