Published

on

KickStarter is raising funds for the Reinkstone R1 tablet, which features a backlit color electrophoretic display for low-light operation. The screen size is 10.1 inches, the resolution is 2232 x 1680 pixels. The pixel density is 280 ppi in black and white and 140 ppi in color. Note that this is not an E Ink, but a new Display Electronic Slurry (DES) E-Paper screen. The advantages of DES include higher resolution and image quality. However, so far such a screen has not been used in any other device.

The tablet configuration includes a quad-core processor (Arm Cortex-A55 cores and GPU Mali-G52), clocked at 1.8 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. The tablet is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interfaces, two 0.8W loudspeakers and two noise canceling microphones. It is powered by a 4500 mAh battery, which provides up to 300 hours of continuous use on a single charge. The kit includes a pen that recognizes 4096 levels of pressure. The tablet supports a variety of text formats, common image and sound formats.

The developers refer to the advantages of the device as the modern OS Android 11 and small thickness. The dimensions of the tablet are 236 x 167.3 x 6.8 mm. The body is made of aluminum alloy.

The minimum contribution is $ 429. At the time of this writing, the amount collected has exceeded $ 920,000. Considering that the authors of the project were aiming to collect $ 100,000, it can be considered a success. Shipping of tablets is due to begin in November this year.

Experts of the analytical company Canalys have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in one of the most important world markets for ready-made PCs – the American one. This market situation reflects the overall picture of the global PC market, which Canalys includes desktops, laptops, tablets and workstations.

In the third quarter of 2021, 30.3 million systems of these categories were sold in the United States, which is 16% less than in the third quarter of 2020.

Notebook shipments totaled 17.1 million units, down 15% year on year. This is due to the sharp drop in Chromebook sales as the education market has reached saturation. Tablet shipments fell 24% to 10.0 million units. Analysts attribute this to a decline in consumer demand. Desktop computers stand out against this background – their shipments grew by 6% and reached 3.2 million units. According to experts, this is due to the return of workers to offices and an increase in purchases in the corporate segment.

Dell was # 1 in the US PC market in the third quarter. It increased sales by 10.4%, which led to an increase in Dell’s share from 22.3% to 27.6%. At the same time, HP, ranked second, reduced sales by 30.7%, which resulted in a decrease in its share from 33.4% to 26.0%. Ranked third, Lenovo increased sales by 2.9%. Its share increased from 15.0% to 17.4%. This is followed by Apple, which reduced sales by 13.7%. Apple’s share fell from 11.9% to 11.6%. Acer closes the top five.

Experts from the analytical company Canalys have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in the Western European tablet market. According to their calculations, from July to October, 6.9 million units of these devices were sold on the indicated market. This is 20% less than in the same period in 2020.

Despite the shrinking market, Apple was able to grow sales by 33%, further expanding its lead over other suppliers. At the end of the quarter, Apple’s market share was 45%. The rest of the top five reduced sales on an annualized basis. Particularly noticeable – by 53% – reduced sales of the second-largest company Samsung.
