Well I have to say I wouldn't be bothered by the contrast if it's per the picture here, as it is still very readable even though not ideal, but I agree with your battery marking assessment. The lack of credible means to transfer the content to a PC though is for me a major issue. It's just too inconvenient to consider using. I'd rather use notepad on my iPhone or something like it. I await version 2 with anticipation, R.I.P :-) someone hasn't heard about the GM Nova in Mexico :-)

Monkeys Messed Up My Boogie Board

A USB port and the ability to download a .jpg or .pdf would seem like the minimum requirement.  Sounds like yet another large team of college grads first attempt at product design.  Could have hired a few people who know what they are doing.

Actually spent more for the design and now have an inferior product..

BoogieBoard RIP

I agree with your assesment. I'm not really sure what type of product they were trying to produce. Unfortunatly, it looks like their entire design purpose was to create a paperless piece of paper for the sake of being green. I'm not sure I go through 50,000 sheets of tablet paper in my own lifetime, but I guess they are quoting the lifetime of the product.

The BoogieBoard Rip is due in November 2011. It saves images to a microSD card.

I don't want to pile on, but the marketing folks that named it the BoogieBoard R.I.P. need a drawing board of their own...
