Noteslate recently started taking pre-orders for a $199 writing slate with a 6.8 inch E Ink display and support for stylus input. But if you’re holding out for something bigger, the company plans to launch a 13 inch model called the Noteslate Hero eventually.
There’s no word on the price or launch date for the Noteslate Hero yet, but the company did release a video that shows what it will look like.
Noteslate isn’t the only company with a new 13 inch E Ink device on the way. Chinese company Onyx is also developing a large-screened eReader.
It’s expected to ship in the spring of 2016 and it reportedly features a high-resolution 2200 x 1650 pixel display and an inductive touchscreen with stylus support.
Don’t expect either of these devices to be as cheap as a typical Kindle. Not only do they have bigger, higher-resolution displays and support for jotting notes with a stylus, but they also come from companies that probably won’t be able to sell devices at razor-thin profit margins while earning revenue from the sale of eBooks and other digital content.
