I was pleasantly surprised by the Lenovo Smart Paper at CES 2023 in Las Vegas. Writing tablets with E Ink screens, like our favorite Onyx Boox Note Air 2, are hot right now and I’ve been waiting for the one E Ink tablet that hits all my bases before I call the category a home run. The Lenovo comes close to a win, but it still proves that no writing tablet gets everything right.

I got to check out the Lenovo Smart Paper in person, and it makes quite the competitor to less expensive options like the reMarkable 2 writing tablet and the Amazon Kindle Scribe. All of these devices are in the same price range, just under $400 in the US with a pen and hopefully a book cover, though accessories can get pricey.

Like the Kindle Scribe, the Lenovo Smart Paper has its own light and can give you warm and cool lighting depending on your time of day preferences. It has a huge bezel, and beyond the border there is a small tray where the magnetic stylus sits.

Is this better than hanging the pen off the edge of the tablet, as with most other E Ink writables? It’s a clunky-looking design choice, but the Lenovo will come with its own cover, and together this should keep the pen more secure.

There are three things I want an E Ink tablet to do

Because the Lenovo Smart Paper is Android at heart, it can run apps and perform some tasks that its competitors can’t handle. It can convert handwriting to text on the fly, and it can even record audio and attempt transcription. The competition in this price range can’t do those things.

There are three bases I need a writing tablet to tag. First, I need a place to find books, preferably one of the sources I’m already using, like my public library apps or the Amazon Kindle market. Second, I need good writing options – for note-taking, journaling, planning, and even just doodling.
