I guess it's not the best place to post this but I thought it'd be interesting for M92 users
Ha! I was just about to post this, but iampiti was quicker... Looks like I may have been right about the existence of this market segment after all! I am feeling quite clever right now, please let me enjoy it for a minute... Thank you
A couple of interesting points: having read the story in several sources, it's not clear whether the screen, or the whole device will be A4 size. I hope it's the latter.
Even more interesting is the screen tech. I was not aware of the feasibility of a flexible touchscreen, but handwriting on top of that?! I hope it will be a proper wacom-type solution with palm rejection, not the T1-style touchscreen that you're welcome to write on, as long as you don't touch it with your hand. That may be possible (not comfortable) on 6 inches, but pretty much impossible on anything larger.
I am really looking forward to this device - it's the closest I have seen to the NoteSlate concept. We will have to see the price of course, and whether they will sell to consumers. I would hate to have to open a school in Tokyo just to get my hands on one
