Remarkable (styled as reMarkable) is an E Ink writing tablet for reading documents and textbooks, sketching and note-taking with the goal of a paper-like writing experience.[3] Developed by a Norwegian startup company of the same name, the device is geared towards students, academics, and professionals.[4]

The reMarkable blends the reading experience of an electronic paper display with the writing experience of a high end tablet computer through its low lag Linux operating system,[5] and is claimed to be solidly built.[6]

History[edit]

The company was founded by Magnus Wanberg and started product development in Oslo in early 2014. It has collaborated with Taiwanese company E Ink.[7] Development was started in 2013[6] and a crowdfunding campaign launched in late 2016.[8] Pre-orders began in 2017.[9]

Second generation reMarkable 2 was announced on March 17, 2020.[10] It was marketed as the 'World's Thinnest Tablet' (measuring 187 x 246 x 4.7 mm[11]) and sold in batches since mid-2020 for 458 €/US$ including the pen.[12]

Operating system[edit]

ReMarkable uses its own operating system, named Codex. Codex is based on Linux and optimized for electronic paper display technology.[13]

Reception[edit]

Remarkable RM100, launched in late 2017, has been criticized due to the sluggishness when loading and unloading files.[14] According to Wired, reMarkable 2 "excels at taking your handwritten notes, but it doesn't do much else well."[15] According to the podcast Bad Voltage, the lack of integrations with other software limits the device's usefulness for taking notes for some users,[16] and there is no official third-party app ecosystem, but the ability to add software via unofficial hacks offers interesting possibilities.[17][18]
