Asus Eee Note EA800 is one unique device. Among the sheer amount of tablets and eReader, this one is like no other. It is surely the first of its kind, as Asus named it “note taker”. It doesn’t have a gorgeous colourful screen with a nice browser. It doesn’t have an e-ink display that looks like paper either. Instead, it sports a 8 inch grayscale non-backlit and super sensitive LCD screen and it targets student customers with the ambition of “replacing notebooks in university”. In addition to that, it also includes a 2MP camera as well as the microphone to help students record the information they study in class. Its affordable price is also a great help for students.
Consequently, this one is a hard gadget to review. Firstly, it doesn’t like any other to be compared. Secondly, it only has a very small number of users and actually that is what it is supposed to. And thirdly, this one is not available outside Taiwan, and probably won’t. Of course it doesn’t stop people from getting one via eBay or similar websites. I got mine for £159 and had to wait about one week for it to arrive. So, let’s start with the unboxing.
