If they make it possible to use android apps (like the kindle reader app and such) it is pretty damn near to what i hunker for in an ereader..
If it is a close environment, no joy

By i have read remarkable 2 has linux like os. The only new in this perspective is the possibility of read websites chosen in a desktop with chrome

Just pre-ordered one, curious to see how it is. I always wanted an rM1, but couldn’t justify the price tag...

PDF and ePub.

If I was still in Industry, I'd have one of these for PDFs and annotating PDFS. Especially if the office was paying for it.

It doesn't compete with a Kobo Libra for epubs and unless you have a massive amount of mono PDFs to get through, it can't compete with a decent 10" LCD Android tablet at about 1/3rd price.

8 Gbs isn't much storage since you will only have maybe 4 left over, and with no sd slot you won't really be able to keep much on it. For me that makes it useless.

I have a 2/3rds used 256 G SD card on my 10" tablet for all the PDF datasheets and reference material.

An 8 G may leave 5 to 6.5G free, which is fine only for non-scanned PDFs, ie ones that could have been made as epubs.
