My new Kindle Scribe arrived the other day. The 10.2" e-ink screen is fantastic. And the wacom-stylus writing layer works pretty smoothly. I am not convinced the writing on it is better than an iPad Pro, but I was more interested in the large screen.

Still waiting for the Kindle denim cover to come. I picked up a third-party cover, but it's a heavy beast, and turns a very light device into one 3X the weight.

I also ordered one for my wife for Christmas. We will see if she likes it.She has my old Kindle Voyager, basically the 6" precursor to the Oasis.

I'm still waiting hopefully for an updated Oasis. The scribe seems too large to tote around as a daily reader to me.

Interesting, how does this compare to the ReMarkable 2?

Never actually seen a Remarkable, but I think it is the same technology.

Since I got one for my wife for christmas, I haven't had a lot of time to play with mine. As I am keeping it a secret for another 3 weeks. LOL

It's like carrying an iPad. as long as you use an actual Kindle case. I bought a third party one which is too bulky, and the flip cover from Amazon itself should arrive on Tuesday.

The amazon "denim" cover is great. It isn't heavy, and protects the device.

The scribe must have a huge battery as it is showing very good battery life.

I haven't had to charge mine in 6 months...it shuts down completly when you dont use it..the older ones used to last about 6 weeks..i guess they didn't shut off completly...instead of hitting the screen to wake it up..i have a physical button that wakes it up

The scribe has a physical button to turn it on.

What I am finding is that the battery even with WiFi on, is lasting a lot longer than I expect.
