Earl: Rugged E-Ink Tablet

彪悍的户外平板

市面上的Android平板电脑同质化严重,要说不同也就是硬件配合和外观上有点区别,很难让用户有购买欲望。不过,近日Sqigle公司推出了一款名为Earl的平板给我们带来了耳目一新的感觉。Earl平板电脑拥有坚实厚重的外壳,能满足用户野外或者更苛刻的环境中应用,甚至采用了太阳能面板保证在户外没电源的情况下也能使用。

Earl作为一款主打野外应用的平板电脑,该设备拥有远足所需的所有功能,如典型的无线连接、NFC、GPS和预装的地形图。有意思的是,该平板还配备了一种双向对讲机,能够与其它使用Earl平板的远足者进行聊天。

运行Android 4.4系统,配备分辨率为1024*768的6英寸E-link触摸屏,电池容量为3000mAh。尽管E-Ink响应速度较慢影响体验,但似乎是为了延长续航时间,据称续航可以达到20小时。具备IP68等级的防水、防尘、防震以及防泥能力,可以在高温和低温恶劣环境中正常工作。另外,Earl的户外使用者可以通过背部的可折叠高效太阳能板,在5小时内快速完成充电动作。


Whether it’s backpacking, hiking, or weekend exploring, the Earl tablet is as ready to face the great outdoors as you are!

Earl is built for weekend treks and backpackers, combining GPS with walkie-talkie, also including more than a dozen other features. Earl unites Android 4.4 technology with E-ink, meaning it won’t zap the device of energy quickly. With a built-in GPS chipset and its ability to connect to Bluetooth 4.0 devices, the device features thousands of maps to trails, ranges, and backcountry areas in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Topographical maps come with the display option of 100k or 24k screen resolution. It is available in either Coal or Snow.

The features include technology that in addition to giving you guidelines about the lay of the lands you traverse, also can monitor heart rate, track altitude, and operate like a two-way walkie-talkie. It even comes with worldwide radio connectivity, allowing you to stay in the know about the world around you. If that gets boring, Earl is slated to become EPUB, MOBI, and PDF compatible, so that you can carry your favourite reads with you when you decide that perhaps a break from the outdoors is in order.

Considering you will be braving the elements, Earl is designed to withstand them too, being waterproof, dirt-proof, weatherproof, etc. In other words, it is able to live up to its function as a outdoors-survival tablet.

野外使用续航20小时也有点短……不过可以太阳能充电这个不错,不知道实际效率如何。
野外用..续航才20小时... 虽然说这已经算是特别不错的啦..但总觉得对于野外苛刻环境下用有点不够呢..
