Interesting, but a hard pass at that price.

And then to sell the pen separately??!?
I get not including the pen with most of the tablet 2-in-1s on the market, but the pen seems like the raison d’être for this device
No, sir. I don’t like it.
Exactly my reaction. Looks like a slightly-nicer Kindle Paperwhite with a pen-sensitive screen – which is great, and I can see how this would be a handy sketching/reading tool.
At its original price, I can buy a similarly-sized iPad Pro in full color and far better capabilities, and have $250 left over for two Kindle Paperwhites.
Agreed with you and @LockeCJ both.
I hate to say it, but it’s going to be one of those things where once they get the technology right, it’ll take some seriously sized production runs, to get the price down to affordable-for-purpose.
Mind you, if they do the R&D right, they’ll have some seriously tasty patents for firms like Apple or especially Amazon to want to slurp up for lots of money, to do just that.
In fact, looking at how they’re currently at an official seventh-generation version, without selling one yet, makes me wonder if that isn’t exactly the plan.
