The NoteSlate saga continues. Earlier this year a company called NoteSlate showed off a concept for a $99 note-taking tablet with a 13 inch, two-tone display. A few days ago I noted that the product had yet to move past the concept phase and despite the company’s initial promises it wouldn’t be shipping this summer.
Now the plot thickens. The official NoteSlate website is now offline — although the company has taken to Twitter to make it clear that it will be back online in August with more clear information about where the product stands.
It’s also clear that if the product ever sees the light of day, it will cost more than $99. It also looks like the NoteSlate could eventually offer a choice of a monochrome display or a grayscale screen for (a little) more color depth.
Honestly, at this point it seems like you’re probably better off waiting for Boogie Board to release its new model with built-in storage for saving handwritten notes. While it’s certainly possible that we’ll see a NoteSlate product one day, I doubt it will be competitively priced. Boogie Board’s current offerings cost less than $40.
