There's a market for iPads, and there's a market for Kindles—the latter being dedicated devices for people who only want to read.
What Kindles are to iPads, the Freewrite Traveler is to laptops. The Freewrite Traveler is a "dedicated drafting device" that allows writers to do just one thing, write. No notifications, no e-mail, no spur-of-the-moment web browsing.
Users are meant to compose drafts on the device, start to finish, then handle the messy business of editing on a proper computer. And because the screen is an e-ink display, the device's battery life is freaking four weeks.
Lastly, the device is literally half the size of a laptop, and weighs just 1.6 lbs.
The Freewrite Traveler runs $500.
