Two screen tablet Yota Devices will compete with iPad




Creator Russian smartphones YotaPhone, company Yota Devices, working on a tablet computer. As a smartphone, a tablet designed with two screens: on the one hand – the usual, the opposite – based on electronic ink technology. This was “Izvestia” said the head of the company Yota Devices Vladislav Martynov.


The idea of ​​using two screens can be realized in the tablet, but in the company of such an approach is not a principled position. Despite the fact that the main priority is YotaPhone, work on the tablet is already underway, and the two screens can remain unique feature is the company’s smartphones.

One of the inventors YotaPhone – Dmitry Gorilovsky sure if Yota Devices create a tablet, it should be great, with a screen diagonal of 9 or 10 inches (for iPad – 9,7 inches). Wherein the device cost will be quite high. “Without a second screen cost can be around $ 300-450, but with electronic ink display will add to this amount approximately $ 150” – suggests Gorilovsky.

Martynov sure that the cost of the tablet may be high, but for this device “is not the most important thing.” “When a new device on the market the main thing in it – it’s unique user benefits that make the work with the tablet more comfortable and useful, – explains the head of the Yota Devices. – It is for these benefits the user is willing to pay. ”

“The tablet the battery life is not a problem. On the market for a device that operate on a single charge for a long time. Therefore, it can not be considered an advantage, – says Martynov. For tablet users need another interesting feature. ”


Another important feature of electronic ink – the image on the screen clearly visible even in bright sunlight – according to the developers of the company, is not enough to get people to buy more expensive device.

Will it have Yota Devices make an interesting product in a short time, very difficult to say, but judging how vague CEO talks about the tablet and how much he talked about YotaPhone 3 , it can be assumed that the producer himself has not yet formed the image of the gadget. This will cause it to appear on the market later than next smartphone company, if any, will decide to release the tablet.
