I’m one of those folks who prefer typing to writing by hand. But I know there’s a lot of you out there who find it more comfortable to write by hand. For some people, that means they have to write everything down by hand and then type it up. This is particularly an issue for some of my fellow writers.

I’ve found a pretty neat device that combines the convenience of a tablet with the satisfaction of writing by hand. The 10-inch reMarkable tablet uses eInk and is not backlit in any way. The screen looks like paper and is very easy on the eye.

Designed for both writing by hand and drawing, it features a special “canvas” display instead of a traditional glass front. When you move the special pen across the “paper,” you’ll actually hear the familiar sound of a pencil on paper.  But this device has a trick no notepad can master. It’s able to convert your handwriting into editable text that you can transfer to other programs. So, no need to look back over your notes and retype everything.

Depending on how often you use it, battery life can last between a couple of weeks and a couple of months. You can’t use it to surf the Internet or play games but you do have the ability to email your files. You can share your files wirelessly to iOS, Android, and Windows devices.

It retails for $599 but I’ve seen Amazon offer up to $200 off depending on the day, so keep an eye out for deals. Click here to check it out: https://amzn.to/2ToecE0
