reMarkable 2 is a $399 e-Paper Tablet with Pressure Sensitive Pen

reMarkable digital notepad and e-reader was unveiled in 2016, and designed to feel like using actual paper sheets. The device came with a single-core Cortex-A9 processor, a 10.3″ E-Ink display with 1872×1404 resolution, and WiFi connectivity to backup your notes and/or drawings to the cloud or mobile phone.

The company is now back with reMarkable 2 e-Paper tablet equipped with a faster and more efficient dual-core Cortex-A7 processor, 1GB RAM, a second-generation CANVAS 10.3″ e-Paper display with the same 1872×1404 resolution but lower latency. The second-generation e-Paper tablet also benefits from a thinner design and much-improved battery life.

It runs Codex Linux-based operating system optimized for low-latency digital paper displays and supports PDF and ePUB documents. Note and file syncing between reMarkable tablet is possible on MacOS, Windows 7 and newer, iOS, and Android.

reMarkable 2 can be pre-ordered today for $399 including DHL shipping (to the US?), a “Marker” pen, and a folio cover. Shipping is expected to start in July. You can add $50 to get the “Marker Plus” pen including the eraser function. Those are pre-order prices, and eventually, retail prices will be quite higher for the accessories:

  • Marker – $49

  • Folio Cover – $69
  • Book Folio Cover – $99 (this cover can remain attached while working)

reMarkable 2 price will stay at $399 after the pre-order period, but you’ll likely want to add a pen unless you only plan to use it as an e-Reader… More details can be found on the product page.
