I can see the appeal of something Dasung 13" screen: https://www.amazon.com/Dasung-Ink-Paperlike-13-3-Monitor/dp/... for long, sequential text documents. It'd make an interesting second display. Just not for $1,200.
Here is a non-affiliate link:
The new one with e ink keyboard is called the Yoga Book C930 and should be available later this year. Lenovo's mobile sites are a mess so I can't seem to find a page for it at the moment but there are many video previews of the device.
Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be bright enough for solid outdoor use.
p.s. one trick to use outdoors is to change your editor theme from dark to bright.
Thumbs-up! I get what you mean but this sounds brilliant :-)))
They were transreflective LCD's, not e-ink.
To display adverts?
The price difference IIRC was roughly $99/$119, so please don't let the parent mislead you into thinking every Kindle comes with ads.
Turns out the ad is just a featured book on the lock screen. I regret paying extra. Seeing the ad for Leviathan Wakes on my gf’s Kindle is how I discovered The Expanse series.
I have a TV that does that too. I get random artistic photos from Google rather than the curated family photos I would prefer.
I Liked my DX but the screen wasn't adequately protected and I let the magic fairy goo out.
A blog post featuring that display was discussed yesterday here on HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18100447
I believe an exception was carved out for this a couple years ago, so it should be legal to jailbreak both tablets and phones now.
FWIW, the normal word is "eyesore" -- but a saw would make anyone's eyes sore.
