Oslo, Norway-based tech brand reMarkable has set its sights on India with the official launch of their paper-like e-ink tablet, the reMarkable 2. This “distraction-free, paper-like” digital notebook aims to bridge the gap between the familiar feel of pen and paper and the convenience of modern technology.
“We’re dedicated to listening to our millions of customers to create tailored experiences,” said Mats Herding Solberg, reMarkable’s Chief Design Officer and Head of Product Management and as read on The Indian Express. “We believe the reMarkable 2 offers a unique solution for those seeking a focused and paper-like note-taking experience without digital distractions.”
The reMarkable 2 boasts a 10.3-inch monochrome display that mimics the writing experience on paper. The included Marker Plus stylus lets you jot down notes or annotate documents with natural precision, while the optional Type Folio keyboard cover transforms it into a digital notepad for typing.
The reMarkable 2 boasts several features that cater to the digital note-taker:
- Effortless Handwriting Conversion: Convert your handwritten notes to neatly formatted text with MyScript technology, supporting 33 Latin-based languages.

A one-year free subscription to the Connect plan is included, unlocking unlimited cloud storage, multi-device protection, and mobile/desktop app access.
