See here

A bit expensive, will it be useful?

Now I can finally type on my reMarkable Type Folio.

Ordered and received mine.

It's a very comfortable and nice focused typing "distraction-free" device with a breathtakingly slim profile.

Anyone?

Let me say: the keyboard is fantastic, it has the right feeling for a non-mechanical keyboard, offers a very responsive typing experience when you type, and stows when not in use, so you can really forget about it and just enjoy it, even because the clever design of the TypeFolio holds the ReMarkable2 securely.

Got no extra option, mine is very basic (except for the Pro-pen), but I love this device  :-+ :-+ :-+

I hate those flat keyboards, but whatever floats your boat!

I'm still otherwise not convinced about those notetaking eInk tablets. Interesting to see that reMarkable acknowledges the fact that if you're going to use a digital device, a keyboard is more efficient than a virtual pen.

I use it to mark up PDF files, like I would with a pen and paper.

Everyone and then, I want to jot down a stream of consciousness - keyboard helps, until I need to squiggle a drawing too.

Btw, mine is air tapped. I have a weird use case.

 But paperless review of documents in "pen and paper" fashion,  this is excellent.

it's not more efficient, it's a different kind of input device.
I use the pen for drawing, underlining, italic writing, and signing, and the keyboard to write long texts.

All in "pen and paper" fashion  :D

I even use my IBM stencil with it.

Well, I should have added, more efficient to input text.

Otherwise, is it possible with the Remarkable 2 to:
- Copy the notes to any computer without going through their cloud?
- Copy notes from any computer back to the Remarkable, without going through their cloud, if at all?
- Copy PDFs onto it and read them, without going through their cloud, if at all?

I've hand drawn the flowchart(1) of both my file system and bootloader.
let me say: your drawing is better than my freehand drawings on my remarkable2 ;D
