EeWrite E-Pad X First Dual Screen Tablet with E Ink Display (Video)


EeWrite E-Pad X

It looks like the makers of the new 10.3-inch E Ink E-Pad tablet that’s available on Indiegogo right now already have a new project in the works.

EeWrite is looking to be the first company to release a dual screen tablet with a color LCD screen on one side and a monochrome E Ink screen on the other side.

They’re calling it the E-Pad X.

There have been a few E Ink phones that have an E Ink screen on the back, like the Hisense A6, but there haven’t been any tablets with E Ink screens yet.

A few devices have tried combining LCD and E Ink in flip form, like the Lenovo Yoga Book C930, for a 2-in-1 approach, but the E-Pad X would do away with the hinge and combine them into a single unit.

The EeWrite E-Pad X is expected to have a 9.7-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. Unfortunately it sounds like they are going to go the cheap route on the E Ink screen. Apparently they’re going to use a low resolution 9.7-inch screen with 150 ppi instead of the 10.3-inch display with 227 ppi that’s on the E-Pad.

The E Ink side has a Wacom touchscreen for notes and drawings. The tablet has a microSD card slot and USB-C port. It has a 6-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. It has a 5,000 mAh battery.

One interesting thing to note, there’s a button to switch between the LCD screen and E Ink screen—you can only use one at a time.

At this point it looks like they basically glued an ereader to the back of a tablet, but it’s not a final product yet and they are expected to try and make it thinner and lighter.

  1. hi when do we get the Mimas vs Note pro reviiew

    • It won’t be until next week. There’s really not much interest in the Mimas so I’m doing other things first. The Note Pro is superior in every way except not having a memory card slot and page buttons. The software on the Mimas is a big letdown compared to Onyx’s software, and the writing experience isn’t nearly as smooth.

      I can tell you right now the Note Pro is the clear and obvious winner. It’s not even close, really, which is a shame because I wanted to keep the Mimas instead with the page buttons and save $100 but unless Boyue majorly improves their software in the next week that isn’t going to happen.

      • thanks bud, I actually just wanna know if the Mimas screen looks as clear as the Note Pro one, seems like there’s a gap?

        I guess without the glass layer the mimas screen is soft like the original Note. not solid feel.

        about the software, I have the neoreader 2.0 (no one uploads the 3.0 yet), can be installed on the likebook or even on the phone

        neoreader 2.0

        • The Mimas seems to have a rigid layer over the front too, maybe plastic. The screen doesn’t flex like the original Note. I don’t see any obvious contrast difference between the Note Pro and Mimas.

          BTW the Neo Reader app does not work on the Likebook.

          • in the picture (the mimas vs note pro preview post) the mimas is very green-ish and gray, is that because the frontlight not good or the screen contrast?

          • On its own it seems normal but next to the Note Pro the cool light has a yellower color.

  2. I am happy I didn’t buy the Likebook Mimas and instead waited for the e-pad. BTW, when do you want to make the review of the E-Pad? Did a prototype even arrive to you?

    • Sorry but I don’t plan on reviewing the E-Pad. Too many of these crowdfunded devices fail to live up to expectations. Developing sound software for E Ink devices takes a lot more time and work than most of these companies think. It’s been nearly two years since the Remarkable was released and it’s still a terrible ebook reader, and it’s probably been the most successful of all the crowdfunded E Ink devices.
