reMarkable 2 - a tablet for writing

The iPad Pro delights many professionals, but there's another tablet targeting the executive class section of the plane — and it just got a new version.
Meet the reMarkable 2, a tablet for writing that's been 3 years in the making.

At $399, the reMarkable 2 is much cheaper than the $599 original model. And among other features, the 0.19-inch thin reMarkable 2 appears to be the thinnest tablet ever, measuring a hair under the 0.20-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.

The reMarkable 2 pitches itself towards the business conference room in a trailer video that shows off handwriting to text recognition, a feature that's hopefully coming to the iPad soon — and is in Windows. Also, expect better performance in terms of writing and drawing recognition — the reMarkable 2 is rated for 21ms latency, which is the same rating as the Surface Pen and close to the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil's 20ms latency.
this really piqued my interest

$400 US

These fragile bodies of touch and taste
This vibrant skin, this hair like lace
Spirits open to the thrust of grace
Never a breath you can afford to waste B.C.

Read some reviews of this that basically said it was horrible.
A glass of wine with you, sir, and the ladies I'll enjoy.
Revolutionary times must on occasion make do with considerable abridgements in order to accentuate the political line more strongly.

Seems to me you'd be better off with an iPad and Apple Pencil. $400 USD for a 10" Kobo is just stupid.
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.
