The Kindle Scribe is perhaps the perfect example of part e-reader, part tablet to meet your reading and note-taking needs. It has the same functions you’ve come to know and love in a Kindle, like a 300 ppi glare-free screen, weeks of battery life, and adjustable warm light. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s Basic or Premium pens, so you can take handwritten notes or underline important passages in the book you’re reading.
Your notes are automatically organized in one place for each book, so you can browse, review and export them via email. Kindle Scribe also comes with preset templates to help you create notebooks, journals, and lists, and you can create sticky notes in Microsoft Word and other compatible Word documents.
Review: Amazon Kindle Scribe
ZDNET contributing writer, Matthew Miller, went hands-on with the Kindle Scribe and called it “close to perfect.”
“I use my Kindle Scribe every day as my primary note-taking device, and the habit of carrying it has resulted in me reading more books than I have in years,” Miller writes. “It’s a great ebook device and doubles as a capable work tablet.”
The Kindle Scribe comes with the Basic Pen, but for more advanced features like a dedicated eraser and shortcut buttons, you need the Premium Pen, which costs $30 extra.
