In late July, we reported that DASUNG will launch the world's first 25.3-inch color E-Ink display using E-Ink Kaleido 3. After more than a month of waiting, the crowdfunding plan for this new product is finally launched today ( September 6) started. If you want to know the characteristics and basic specifications of Paperlike Color, you can refer to the previous report .
First of all, I have to say that the Paperlike Color product really meets the needs of specific people. The crowdfunding campaign started only 90 minutes ago, and there are already more than 170 backers! DASUNG offers two styles and four versions for people to subscribe, namely the "Black Knight" version, the "Black Knight with Headlight" version, the "Curved Screen" version and the "Curved Screen with Front Light" version. The "Black Knight with Headlight " version with a discount of $400 is priced at $1599, and its 50 super early bird places have already been sold out; Only 6 spots left.
The crowdfunding super early bird prices for the remaining places in each version are listed as follows (in US dollars):
"Black Knight" version $1499
"Black Knight with Headlight" version $1629
"Curved screen" version $1599
"Curved screen with front lights" version $1699
By the way, I wonder if Dasung Technology is particularly confident in the curved screen version (or not confident enough in the Black Knight version?), only the "Black Knight" series will have a $69 gift Dasung Cast (see Portal for product introduction). In addition, the weights of the four versions are also different. The lightest is the "curved screen" version, which is about 3.78kg; and the "curved screen with headlight" version is about 3.99kg. The "Black Knight" version is obviously heavier, about 4.46kg; while the pre-equipped version is the heaviest, reaching 4.63kg. All four have been equipped with two-channel stereo speakers.
It is worth mentioning that Dashang Technology has equipped this new product with a set of assistant software, which provides a series of functions, such as regular screen refresh and smart mouse tracking, and can also pre-set the modes and parameters displayed when executing different programs.
If you are interested in this color E-Ink display, you can go to the Indiegogo page to subscribe. Dashang Technology said that it is expected to ship in December this year.
