Larger Eve V - Eve V+ maybe?


#1

The Eve V is a very high powered device and as such would appeal greatly to graphics designers/photographers. However, the screen is a major limitation and as such, holds the device back and limits its true potential. The small screen size means the device is impractical for many uses/applications such as multitasking in windows, or simply using applications like unity which require a large screen. Would we ever make another Eve V with a bigger screen, maybe a bigger battery and more ports to accompany it?

How is 12 inches a small screen size for a tablet?!?

Unless you’re talking about making a specialty product similar to Surface Studio or All-in-One PCs like the HP Sprout. I personally feel that 12 inches is almost unwieldy for a tablet, and that 10 or less is generally about the right size, but then again these kind of tablets are meant to be laptop/desktop replacements.

I’m trying to understand what you’re thinking of designing.

I’m still hyped about the V and can’t wait to hold it in my hands, so i’m spending my time with ideas/whishes what i woul like to see in Future from Eve.

And i would like to have a larger device from Eve let’s call it as you did V+
The concept of the V+ should be an Desktop replacement like Surface Studio.

That would IMO perfectly extend the product Lineup
V - focus on Mobility
V+ - focus on Performance

@Ben_Lamont just another V with focus on mobility but bigger Screen wouldn’t make Sense IMO, even when i know there are ppl who need a powerfull Mobile device, but i think the V covers most applications you need on a 2in1 device

I was thinking maybe 15/17 inch screens. Maybe sell it as more of a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet combo. IMO the larger screen would be a great feature, especially for graphic designers, etc. who use the large screen, as well as the other features that the device has (like the CPU,RAM,SSD,Touchscreen,etc.).

Similar to the dell inspiron 2-in-1s. See here: http://www.dell.com/au/p/inspiron-15-7569-2-in-1-laptop/pd?ref=PD_OC

External screen seem the obvious answer here - most designers would use them anyway?


#6

Yes, but I was thinking more for people like students, who would work in various locations and so can’t really carry around a monitor, but can carry a bigger tablet-cross-laptop


#7

@Ben_Lamont & @SteveYork You ever seen something like this? I read about it months ago.


#8

It is crazy to think no companies tought about this…


#9

You are mistaking yourself, Eve is not censed to be a Tablet, it is more censed to be a computer able to operate in a tablet mode. The ipad pro is a tablet for example and yes 12 inches is little.


#10

If they do not understand this it would be “Microsoft like” typical retard response :smiley:


#11

The perfect exemple is for designers :
Yes they want detachable screen to draw accuratly and yes they want big screen to have a general view.
And at the end they do not want to feel stucked in a tablet environnement to save their work.


#12

No.
Eve is sensed to be the company making the V 2in1 tablet.

They asked the community for almost every spec of the V (including the name V).
Most of the members voted for 12".


#13

Ok i didn’t know this, it is … sad.
Cause between a laptop and a tablet, a laptop will be in any cases more versatile.
They also could have launched multiple sized models.


#14

We went for the “mobile first” approach with long battery life and smaller dimensions.
Please have a look at other threats. There are some about the next device by eve.
I recommend the search function.
You are very welcome to share your thoughts there and help make the next device the best in it’s category.


#15

@andybotty might want to rephrase, I don’t think we have many “threats” on the community :laughing:


#16

Actually, I’d argue the V is more a tablet than a PC. If you want PC power, your going to go buy a desktop with a stronger processor.

The purpose of the V is to be portable, hence it is more tablet.

And yes, 12-inches is WAAY too big for the kind of tablet I was referencing.

By the way, that post was from almost a year ago.


#17

So a post that has one year is consumed WTF :sweat_smile:
I explained with “designer” example why you need a laptop/tablet with big screen i’ve nothing more to add.
If you want to play candy-crush and send emails ok with your 10 or 12 inches screen but 14 inches is really the minimum for descent professional work.
After i understand if the “community” wanted more a tablet than a laptop but it just disappoints me about people first preoccupations.

Hello every one,

I really enjoy the fact Eve take in account point of views of people, this is a new step to create better technology to my mind.

The specs of the Eve are great but there is a tremendous problem here: the size of the screen.
12 inches is not serious for big work, here are few situations:

  1. I’m working in thesis and i need to write in a software my math rapport (latex language) but i have a doubt about a demonstration and need to do a calculus in an other app (Nebo for instance). I would like to split the screen to keep an eye on my digital-handwritten calculus. Obviously, i do not want to feel tighten and frustrated by the lack of space of the screen and keep accuracy.
    A really good point is that claviature can detache letting me freedom between handwritting and claviatiure typing.

  2. I’m working on a music piece that i need to transcribe and need to have both recording application and music writing app opened together.

I personally think that you will find a big market by suggesting optionnal size for the eve V and would definitly beat the surface on every aspects.

Hi and welcome to the community!
There have been a few threads already about a bigger variant for the V, maybe have a look at them :wink:

As a workaround you could use a virtual desktop for each app and switch between then via touch-gesture.

Hi, thank you for your quick response.

I read already with lot of interest the topic edited by “M. Lamont” about bigger screen, and commentated.
could you send me an example of a virtual desktop that would help me to visualize the result?
Still i am a bit pessimistic because the real pleasure is to have a lot in one device and to not use always an exterior solution… (Without WIFI, like in a train, in a plane etc…) .

Is it technically possible one 15,6 inches eve?
