There’s no doubt that digital publishing is gradually taking over from the printed word. People love being able to access a library of books through one compact device. But this trend has slowed recently. It seems that people miss being able to write notes in the margin or add stickers to important pages. With the nextPaper tablet, you don’t need to make that sacrifice. The touchscreen e-paper display allows you to enjoy reading even in bright sunlight, and scribble to your heart’s content.
Read in Bright Light
When it comes to choice, the web trounces your local book shop at every turn. You can also enjoy digital magazines, and read blog posts on millions of websites (although there’s only one that matters!). The only problem comes when you have to choose your reading device. While tablets offer an uncomfortable reading experience, e-readers are usually missing key features.
At long last, this quandary has been vanquished. The hero is nextPaper, a tablet with a large e-paper display. It combines the computing power and versatility of Android with world-class readability. Along with reading for pleasure, this tablet is ideal for wading through textbooks and work documents.
It’s estimated that the average person spends nine hours of each day looking at phones, iPads, laptops, and TV screens. These LCD displays are harsh on the eyes and difficult to read in daylight. As a result, many people struggle with vision problems.
The nextPaper tablet is designed to alleviate these issues. Whenever you come across an interesting article online, you can send it straight to nextPaper. The tablet then removes any ads, and formats the text for optimum readability. The same goes for any web content, along with PDF files and ebooks.

The screen itself also makes a difference. As the name suggests, e-paper is the closest thing to reading printed words. You have no glare to contend with, and the contrast is comfortable. As an added bonus, this technology uses very little energy. Consequently, nextPaper can last for four weeks without visiting a wall socket.
But nextPaper is much more than an e-reader. Powered by Android, this tablet runs your favorite apps from the Play Store. In addition, nextPaper comes with its own stylus. It can even sync with your Bluetooth keyboard.
This means you can use this tablet to sketch in Evernote or download documents from Dropbox. You could also compose your next great pitch in Google Docs, or catch up with your favorite writers on Medium.
The stylus offers lag-free input, and you can even rest your palm on the screen without worry. The 9.7 inch display is iPad-sized, and the device measures just 0.27 inches thick. You get 16GB of internal storage, while the microSD card slot lets you add more.
“We found that we were reading a lot more while using the nextPaper. It just seems so natural to pick it up, and read on. No distractions, no clutter — just information ready to be consumed.” Companion on IndieGoGo
