The new Huawei MatePad Paper demonstrates with this novelty that electronic ink screens can be used for much more than just reading.
It is true that tablets have gained a lot of momentum with various companies launching their own products. But as you already know, LCD and OLED screens are not the best for reading and many people still prefer to buy an eBook reader (eBooks). In this sector, Kindle and Kobo devices continue to be best sellers.
Well, Huawei also wants its share of the cake and it is not going to waste the boom of the tablets, so its new MatePad Paper is essentially a hybrid of the two, with a black and white screen but many key features of HarmonyOS 2.0—Huawei’s answer to Android.
This novelty will allow you to browse the Internet, access applications and more with the advantages of these reading devices.
“When users experience eye strain while reading on a PC or smartphone, they can seamlessly transfer content to the Huawei MatePad Paper for an immersive, paper-like reading experience thanks to its e-ink display. In addition, users can also use Huawei MatePad Paper as an additional PC drive”Huawei explains in its press release.
Huawei MatePad Paper: the hybrid between a tablet and an ‘eBook’ reader
The design of the MatePad Paper closely resembles an oversized version of the Kindle and the screen is a 10.3-inch panel, making it one of the largest e-ink displays you can buy. A resolution of 1872×1404 means that the text will be displayed perfectly.
Mention that being electronic ink instead of LCD or OLED the screen takes much longer to update than a traditional tablet, which can cause browsing to be somewhat slower at times. However, its vision benefits will be worth it for most people.
“Huawei MatePad Paper is equipped with HUAWEI M-Pencil (2nd generation), which supports pressure up to 4096 levels, as well as a low latency of 26ms, for a pleasant writing experience. The moment its tip is meets the tablet screen, and the user will feel the sensation of writing on paper”the company adds.
