Below you’ll find two hands-on videos with the Eee note EA800. The first part describes the UI and note-taking software. The second-part shows the camera and other apps, along with a brief view of the hardware.

I have looked for the EA800 on a ton of different websites. I wanted to buy this ereader this year (2010), but no luck so I’m not buying. It has a lot of potential because most ereaders out there don’t allow note taking with a stylus.
You could use Google Books with this and it’s web browser, as long as you have a wifi connection you can have a lot of books.
You should get this device into the hands of someone who is a heavy Evernote user. That service provides ‘cloud-based’ OCR and synchronization of notes from multiple platforms (desktop, web, mobile), and I think would address some of the concerns you are mentioning.
Where did you buy it in Taipei? I have contacts in the south of Taiwan that were unable to find it in Tainan, nor Pingtung (not sure if they looked in Kaoshiung).
For the reviewers information regarding the capacitive buttons, apparently these can be disabled from a menu in the top right hand corner to prevent accidental presses while writing.
I am attracted to the idea of a compact and lightweight dedicated note-taking device. However, as a heavy OneNote user on a tablet PC, I think I would find it very difficult to replace my tablet PC with this comparatively very limited device. The ability to search through your actual handwriting (not just with simple tags) and to highlight and move around ink, pictures and text will be sorely missed.
Actually the sync to evernote works with wifi connection. Go to the main page of “Note” then click on the small icon on the right of each note file (an icon with a pen and a piece of paper), one of the options is download to Evernote.
Hi, I have just bought a brand new EA800 from a retailer in Taiwan and I am having some issues with the responsiveness of the four upper touch-sensitive buttons. While the responsiveness of the three lower ones is perfect, the one from the four upper ones is not so good… sometimes they react quite well but others they do not react so well… Have you also noticed this? Thanks
