What can you equate the Casio Paper Writer tablets with? I suppose the closest relevant item that comes to mind in my opinion would be the modern day smartphone that has a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard of sorts. Yes sir, while the rest of the world has more or less moved on to a full touchscreen display and gotten used to virtual keyboards, there are some others who prefer a more tactile experience. So the same can be said for a full tablet experience – others prefer the feel of writing and drawing on paper, and who can blame them? The Casio Paper Writer tablets might just fill this niche nicely, coming in Paper Writer V-N500-WJ, V-N500-J, V-T500-WJ, and V-T500-J models that will boast pen input on the tablet’s display, in addition to having paper notepads so that you are able to transform your scribbles into digital files.
This is made possible courtesy of the front-facing camera that captures images of the pages in your notebook, in addition to any other paper, while saving them in a digital format. The accompanying software will help you organize the images, enabling them to be searchable. Those in business suits will be pleased to hear that it comes with a business card reader app as well. As for the specifications, we are talking about a mid-range tablet here with a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, front and back cameras, NFC support and RFID write capability in addition to microSD and SD card slots, USB port and HDMI connectivity.
