Part 1. A Brief Introduction of ReMarkable Paper Tablet

ReMarkable is an e-ink paper tablet for reading documents and ebooks, sketching and note-taking with a paper-like feel.

reMarkable vs Tablet

Compared with iPad and other tablets which have an LCD-based screen that has screen glare and a glass surface, reMarkable has a higher-friction surface, and a digital paper display without screen glare, which makes it more comfortable and easy on the eyes when reading for a longer period. Without apps for web surfing, social media or games, the reMarkable is a dedicated device around reading, writing and sketching with a paper-like experience through its low lag Linux operating system.

reMarkable vs eReader

E-readers (like Kindle/Kobo/Nook), as well as reMarkable paper tablets, both use an electronic paper display technology and reflect light much in the say way as paper. However, in addition to reading books and documents, reMarkable lets you even write and sketch as well, which can't be done on an eReader.

What file formats does reMarkable support?

ReMarkable supports the ebook format PDF and EPUB. Some ebooks protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) are not supported.
