Most device with E Ink displays are eBook readers, but over the past few years we’ve seen a handful of companies release E Ink tablets, smartphones, and even monitors.
They’re not common, and they’re usually not cheap. But they promise a more paper-like viewing experience.
Now Dasung has introduced one of the most powerful E Ink tablets to date — but with a $768 price during a Kickstarter campaign, the Dasung Not-eReader 103 is also one of the most expensive models to date.
What you get for that price is an Android tablet with a mix of specs that you’d find in a mid-range phone, a high-end eReader, or a Wacom graphics tablet:
1872 x 1404 pixels
E Ink (16 shades of grey)
Dasung Turbo high-speed refresh support
Front light with adjustable color temperature
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 660|
|Storage||64GB + microSD|
|Touch input||Capacitive touch|
Wacom pen (4096 levels of pressure sensitivity
|Wireless||WiFi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz)|
|Power||6,400 mAh battery|
Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
|Dimensions||232mm x 191mm x 9.1mm|
The price does include a Wacom pen, HDMI cable, and USB-C cable. The HDMI port, by the way, functions as an input, allowing you to use the Dasung Not-eReader as a second screen for a laptop, tablet, phone, or other device.
But $768 is still a lot of money to spend on an Android tablet with a black and white screen unless you’re looking to fill a very specific set of needs.
Dasung says it plans to begin shipping the Not-eReader 103 to backers of its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in November. Backers will also get a free screen protector and leather portfolio case.

Only a fool…
@aaa, you could then use them WITH a Raspberry Pi or that Intel stick or AS a Raspberry Pi or that Intel stick? I’m failing to understand your use case. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I wish more devices would have HDMI in. Tablets, phones even. You could then use them with raspberry pi or that intel stick.
