Amazon announces Kindle Scribe. An e-book reader with a 10.2-inch display and writing function. This means you can use your device as a notebook or add annotations to your text.

If your e-reader simulates paper, you should be able to write on them, right? With the new Kindle Scribe that Amazon announced at its fall event, it’s now possible. Pleasure doesn’t come cheap. The price of the device is at least 370 euros.

Kindle Scribe is 5.8 mm thin and has a 10.2-inch screen with a high resolution of 300 pixels per inch (ppi). It is illuminated by a front light that automatically adapts to the ambient light. Its surface is matte and is intended to convey a paper-like writing feel.

With the writing function, you can do more than just take notes in a book. Among other things, you should be able to keep a to-do list, journal, and check documents such as Microsoft Word files imported from your PC or smartphone. Free notes have templates that simulate lined or graph paper.

2 types of input pens

The stylus attaches magnetically to the side of the e-reader and doesn’t require a power source per se. Kindle Scribe should be economical despite its new features. A single charge should be enough for “months of reading pleasure and weeks of writing pleasure.” Pen offers multiple line widths, highlighter, eraser and undo tools.

For higher demands the stylus is also available as a premium version, which adds 30 euros. You can open a new sticky note. With a standard pen, this is done via the View menu.

Kindle Scribe is currently available for pre-order and is expected to ship in the fourth quarter. The 370 euro standard version comes with 16 gigabytes (GB) of memory. A 32 GB device costs 420 euros, and a 64 GB one will have to pay 450 euros.
