8-Inch Color e-Paper Tablet Bigme Galy Gallery3 Starts Crowdfunding On November 15th

The Kickstart campaign for the Bigme Galy Gallery3 will commence on November 15, where Bigme will start taking orders for this color e-paper tablet.

Bigme has several digital paper tablets on the market already, including those with elementary color displays, so let's look at what makes the Gallery
3 tablet different from the others.

It runs Android even if it is Android 11, features an 8-inch 1920 x 1440 resolution 300 ppi color resolution ACeP display, has 4G, and has a 4096 pressure level digitizer with three buttons that goes along with the Wacom screen.

A fingerprint reader, a 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera, stereo speakers, and 4 mics also helps to sets it apart from many others.

It has more than 100 note making templates, which is a useful feature add on, and while I have not tested it myself, it has voice-to-text support for 31 languages with 98% accuracy.

The other important specs includes an octa-core 2.3 GHz A53 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage, with Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, a USB C port, and a 3000 mAh battery.

That may not sound like much of a battery, but since this is an e-paper tablet, the power consumption is lower than on normal tablet computers. It's also pretty think, with a thickness of just 6.95mm.

The one thing that works against it is the $699 launch price. But that's still within the typical range for most of these e-paper tablets with a color display.

Digital paper tablets are very popular at the moment, which is evident by Amazon's admission into this segment with the Kindle Scribe on November 30th.
