Eve-Tech is giving us a first look at the final design of the company’s upcoming tablet ahead of a crowdfunding campaign set to launch next month.

The tablet formerly known as the Pyramid Flipper is now called the Eve V, and the company plans to offer the first 500 units through an Indiegogo campaign starting November 21st.

The Pyramid Flipper is a 2-in-1 tablet with a Microsoft Surface-like design, featuring a built-in kickstand, a detachable keyboard cover, and support for pen input.

But what really makes the tablet stand out is that it was developed based on input from members of the Eve-Tech community. The company calls it a “crowd-developed” tablet… and at least some of the production costs will be paid for through the upcoming crowdfunding campaign.

Eve-Tech says the final specs will be revealed in the coming weeks, after the company has had more time to test the hardware to make sure it’s up to par. But there are already some features that have been confirmed, including:

  • 12 inch display
  • 7th-gen Intel “Kaby Lake” Y-series processor options (Presumably 7 watt Core M, Core i5, or Core i7 chips)
  • 8GB to 16GB of RAM
  • 128GB to 512GB of solid state storage
  • N-Trig digitzer and pen technology
  • 10 hour battery
  • Thunderbolt 3/USB-C port
  • USB 3.1 Type-C port
  • 2 full-sized USB 3.1 type-A ports
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2
  • microSDXC card reader
  • Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint reader in the power button

Final pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but Eve-Tech says the most affordable model will be priced under $900, while the most expensive model will cost less than $1800.

  1. I said this was vapourware, and I was wrong.
    It’s more like a copy-cat, or a me-too device, and it doesn’t even seem to be that exciting.
    Remember when we saw posts such as:

    Hello, I’m Ervin. A member of Eve Community. I just wanted to say this… This will be my dream device. I am one of the lucky 500 and I can tell you that this ride that I’m having with Eve-tech is the ride of my life! I get to get a device “a la carte” which is amazing to me. And I want to thank this way to Konstantinos and Mike for letting me and my many friends in the community pick what we want. And trust me when I tell you this… IT IS DAMN HARD TO MAKE A DEVICE! You wouldn’t believe it. I do, I have experienced that and it still isn’t over huh So please, feel free to join us, there are still things left to decide 🙂 Or you can simply observe how a device is actually being made from scratch. Explore this universe with us 🙂

    Sorry for the long post and greetings from the Eve Community!

    Live long and prosper 😉

  2. Right, because we dont already have a 12″ tablet PWNING THE FUCKING SHIT out of this space in the market… Shrink it down it down to 8″ so it fits in my pocket, I will buy TWO! BTW, already sold my 12″ tablet, made by that company that even your grandma knows, dont have any interest in owning another oversized piece of shit…

  3. Looks and priced just like a Surface 4 Pro. Only difference is you can get the Surface 4 Pro now and actually start being productive.

    1. To give EVE credit, I don’t think the actual pricing has been revealed yet. At any rate I would refrain from buying any tablet with 6th generation CPU, given that 7th generation devices are already shipping and they are looking much improved. I like my current SP4 a lot and it was mid-pack $1.8K with keyboard for i7 8GB 256GB, if EVE can sell me double those specs @ less then $1.8K and deliver a quality build on par or better than Surface, then they can count me in. I want to stress the build part though, as it is really important to me. I’ve tried all the past and current 2 in 1s and they all were not as good as SP4, or completely sucked.

      PS
      I’m not buying a 2 in 1 without the built-in kickstand. Not having it requires one to have a folio and when you add it to tablet and keyboard it comes in weight of laptops like MacBooks Air 13 and the like

    2. Microsoft are a huge corporation with thousands of engineers and research staff. They have economies of scale, established distribution and maintenance channels. Eve tech is probably two guys and a dog. It takes knowledge and resources to build and test any hi tech product successfully.Those resources and expertise are not necessarily available through crowd sourcing. How do we know that the product will not overheat when running a particular game in a hot humid location?

  4. Kickstands are really not my cup of tea. Also I don’t need a core i5 or i7. I’d much rather have 20 hours of battery life whenever that’s possible. I’m not sure where they think this is going to be distinguishable from dozens of other products by the time they are ready to ship. Just checked the website and couldn’t find any information about environmental impact, inclusion & diversity or supplier responsibility. I’m really at the point where I can’t continue to overlook these issues (supplier responsibilities not the computer specs)..

      1. Thanks for the clarification on the processors. So to be honest I don’t want to beat up the little guy or stop innovation and I acknowledge that there’s only so much Eve-Tech can do in order to remain competitive and bring a product to market but there should be some write up on their website about their position on supplier responsibilities so that they can continue to develop their position as the company grows so that the conscientious consumer can know that supporting this company is helping to develop fair labor practices and environmentally sound manufacturing.

        1. In the thread I sent you, some of the team, Mike, Konstantinos (the orange) and Riku have written a little on how their experiences with suppliers have been.
          If I remember correctly there has also been cases where they have switched suppliers because of them not being up to standard. But I don’t know all the details, as it was before my time among the insiders.
