The Blogoverse was all abuzz 6 months back when the Noteslate first appeared. This was supposed to be an epaper based writing tablet that was supposed to let you draw, scribble, or sketch on a 13″ monochrome screen. It had a detailed website and was supposed to be out by now. Retail was supposed to be $99.
Unfortunately, it turns out that the device they showed us was a concept piece, not a real writing slate. If you go read the home page on the Noteslate website, you’ll find a long apology where they admit that they didn’t have an actual device, just an idea. They can’t actually manufacture it just yet.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pissed. The release date and price were fiction. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am pissed off. They posted a June release date when they didn’t even have it in production.
