Amazon is working on a new Kindle with note-taking functionality



Good e-Reader revealed a few months ago that Amazon was developing a new Kindle e-reader with note-taking functionality. It looks like it will be a reality in 2022 and they will finally develop a large screen Kindle that comes with a stylus and users will be able to freehand draw, take notes and edit PDFs. The company recently conducted a survey of a number of hardcore Kindle users and they picked two names for the upcoming device. These were Kindle Passage and Kindle Scribe. I think Kindle Scribe is the best name and is easily recognizable for what it would do, it would also be easily trademarked.

There are no official details on the hardware specs of the upcoming Kindle Scribe or Kindle Passage. For a note-taking device to work, it must be at least 10.3 inches, which is ideal for A5 documents. This screen size category has a number of competitors in the market, such as the Remarkable 2, Supernote A5X, Kobo Elipsa, Onyx Boox Note Air 2, Onyx Boox Note 5 and a number of other devices such as the Bigme Carve Color, the Bigme B1 Max+ Color and the Bookeen Notea. There’s a reason all of these top-selling company products have 10.3-inch screens, you can develop and launch a product without it being prohibitively expensive, while still offering a good value proposition.

The people who made the most money from the 10.3-inch electronic notes were the ones who sold the most hardware, while also selling digital stationery. This includes premium styluses and cases. Remarkable has been very successful in this regard, they have 3-4 different cases, some made of lower quality materials, down to a leather case. They’ve also bundled their writing slate with a standard stylus, but also offer the Marker Plus, which has tilt functionality, so you can write sideways and get a different writing experience. Kobo tried to emulate this, but ended up putting it all together in one package, to make it easy for consumers to get started and have everything they need.

I think for Amazon to get everyone rolling, they would need to have a range of premium accessories and also provide a better software experience. A large-screen Kindle should have access to the Kindle Library, Kindle Unlimited, Audible Audiobooks, and Kids+. That would make it appealing to people who want a large-screen Kindle with plenty of screen real estate to display more on-screen text. This would likely increase sales of comics, manga, and ComiXology magazines. Amazon offers Kindle manuals, but doesn’t have a large selection, that would be easily readable and editable on the future Kindle.

The Kindle Passage or Scribe would also need a great note-taking experience that has all the basic features of their competitors, without being too complicated for the average student, professional, or average user. They should have features like layers, brush sizes, eraser sizes, many pens/pencils to choose from and easily sync all notes and drawings to the cloud, which can be accessed on the app Kindle for Fire, Android and iOS tablets. . They should also be exported in PDF/PNG format via a USB-C cable to a PC or MAC for easy transfers to the desktop. I’m sure Amazon would really guarantee a quality product.

Amazon already has an infrastructure in place for this future note-taking device. They currently have a highlight system that works great on tablets because you can use different colors. They also have a highlight system for their E INK devices, which is less intuitive. They also have a popular highlight system, where you can see other people’s highlights and how many people have highlighted specific body text. This whole highlighting engine would be better with a stylus, as it would be much easier to highlight a specific word or passage. You can also highlight specific words to look up their meaning in the dictionary or Wikipedia, two tasks where a stylus would be much more robust.
