NoteSlate is a new low cost tablet that doesn’t offer web browsing or e-reading, but gives you the the look of real paper and the option to save your work, or share it via Wi-Fi or USB or SD Card.
It’s a “back to basics” product that is more about simplicity than processor speed and glossy screens (their words). A ridiculous 180 hours of battery life and affordable $99 price tag makes it much easier to take the plunge on something unknown.
In NoteSlate, the handwritten interactivity is trying to change the rules of what we called electronic paper. The hand and human touch is presented in all ways. Emotions expressed, ideas exposed, shared.... and Network changed.
This basic human cultural device, pencil and paper, now in new post-information age. NoteSlate device in most possible simplicity, compatibility and continuity as the basic key point for further development and communications.
