I decided to buy an Ares for following reasons:
  1. I was looking for a device for taking note (mainly)
  2. Not so big as Remarkable
  3. Same experience of paper writing

After having read tons of article and seen several video reviews, my personal short list was:
  • Ratta Supernote A6
  • Boox Nova Pro
  • Apple iPad Mini
  • Ares Note

To make it short:

Supernote: closest thing to writing on paper but with a relatively immature software and no third party apps
Nova Pro: same hardware of Ares but with a smaller battery, no SD card, no paper feeling
iPad Mini: superb software, fast but pricey and no paper feeling

So, even if its glass screen doesn't give paper feeling, I decided to go with Ares Note because it offer Google Play Store, SD card at honest price

This is all very fine. But what use is it if one's device has no update available?

Can you post the update so all of us who have yet to get it can do a manual update?

Thanks!

Alan
