Noteslate has colour but not all. It is a touchable slate consisting of a 13 inch diagonal, 750 x 1080 display that is said the be “eInk”. It will supposedly be ready for release in June, and you will be able to select from a black background and white foreground or the other way round. Other colours like green, blue or red text will probably be found elsewhere.

A touch or pen input is compatible for use with us. Also, the tablet offers 180 hours of battery life. You can store simple drawing, notes and MP3 playback too. Version 1.5 will have PDF text viewing, with version 2 having OCR handwriting recognition. At just $99, it is a bargain, even though the multi-colour edition will cost more. If you can keep your temptation in for just a couple of months, then it will have been well worth the wait!
