The Norwegian paper tablet company reMarkable announced yesterday that they’ve hit a milestone of 1 million sales of their two reMarkable paper tablets.
The first E Ink tablet with digitizer and note taking features was launched in 2017, then followed up by the reMarkable 2, which together have now sold a very solid number for this kind of device.
E Ink tablets for writing and drawing, as well as reading, continue to hold their ground and the market is even generally growing.
Sony was probably the most famous brand in this space before reMarkable, but Huawei saw the growth in this sector and launched their own device Huawei MatePad Paper earlier this year.
These devices are as much about their software and services as they are about their hardware functionality. Once someone sees how an E Ink note taking device can make their work more effective, they usually become loyal fans of them.
Specs for the reMarkable 2 are a 10.3-inch monochrome display with a resolution of 1872 x 1404, with E Ink Carta, 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and a 3000 mAh battery which gives it a long battery life.
Another benefit is that it’s just 4.7mm thick and weighs just 403.5 grams, which is thinner than any tablet on the market today.
