Amazon has launched a bunch of new tools, perhaps the most interesting of which is a new writing tablet called the Kindle Scribe.
It’s more than your usual Kindle tablet, which you can use for writing as well as reading.
The Kindle Scribe has a 10.2-inch screen and comes with a simple stylus (you can pay $30 extra for a premium version with an adjustable shortcut button and an eraser cord on top) that you attach to the side of the device.
You should be able to take notes in both books and PDFs, and Amazon has teamed up with Microsoft to create a button in Word that allows you to export documents directly to your Kindle.
Battery life 12 weeks
The board itself is 5.8 mm thick and weighs 430 grams. As for battery life, Amazon says the writer should last 12 weeks based on half an hour of reading per day, but only three weeks based on half an hour of writing.
The price is $339.99, which is just under 3,500 NOK.
Kindle you can write it, never heard of that before? Well, you might be thinking of the Norwegian company Remarkable, which made it big on the whiteboard with the same name.
We wrote this spring “exceptionally good to use” Marked test 2 in 2020. The price for this is somewhat higher, around 5500 NOK.
It will track your sleep
Among other news that Amazon has just revealed, we find two new Echo Dot speakers, both with and without a watch.
Halo Rise is the name of a type of wake-up device that you put on your nightstand that can track your sleep using various sensors. It can be used as an alarm clock, and it can wake you up with sound and light, just like the Philips Wake Up Light. This will go on sale later this year in the US and will cost $139.99, about 1,400 NOK.
Amazon has also launched a new version of Echo Auto, which gives you Alexa voice control assistant in the car.
