Thinking and Decision making 8/10
A place for your thoughts is a good description of this device. It's simple, but that's a strength, anyone who thinks with a pen in their hands, will immediately feel right at home with this device.
You can share screen, you can create attractive notes and send them as memos. You can use handwriting recognition, which is reliable, and share via email. But really that's about it, this is not an android tablet, an iPad or a laptop replacement.
Ditto above, there's limited "integration". This is not a place for tasks, this is a place for thoughts.
Reading and Learning 3/10
You can only read pdfs, epubs and web articles. If your reading and learning stops there, then this is all you need, and it does those three things very well.
Planning and Organisation 5/10
This is for me the main use, since they introduced hyperlinks in .pdfs and pinch to scroll and zoom, and now tags in notebooks and .pdfs this can be a great tool to organise your productive life. If you commit, and go "all in" as it were that this will be your planner, it can be a powerful device for organisation. But don't expect it to integrate with google calendar for instance, although you can view your remarkable notes and books on the web app, phone app or desktop app.
Innovation and Creation 6/10
For a thinker, pen and paper is enough. For a sketcher, a pencil is all you need to bring great worlds into being from your imagination. The remarkable is an absolute hedgehog at this, it does emulating paper, better than any other paper like tablet. But why then would you not stick with pen, pencil and paper?
Remarkable is a great tablet. It is slim and elegant, but does it have enough features for you?
This device is suited to the lonesome thinker, the type of professional who writes on their own, makes decisions on their own and likes to keep a tangible record of their own thoughts.
You'll fall for this device, especially when it replaces your notebook, but you feel just as at home in its digital pages as you did in the rich textured pages of the moleskine you once loved.
If communicating and collaborating with your team is the most important thing for you to do on this device though, I suggest that you look elsewhere. The Supernote A5X or Books Note Air 2 plus might be the device for you. However, if you want this as a companion for the computers and devices that you already use, you might be right at home with this!
I've loved using the original remarkable for notes during online lectures, and they were a valuable exercise to make and a useful resource to go back to at project write-up. But since using the Supernote, with it's table of contents, or accessing my Trello on the Note Air 2 plus, I'm reminded that in fact, I like all the integrations of modern apps.
Most uses of the remarkable will not be the final output, aside maybe from sketching. This is a place where an idea can be borne and the production, will happen elsewhere.
For many of us, we look for that space to bring our ideas together, in synergy we create, we innovate. The digital space of the remarkable is a space where any creative; in the written, visual, musical, architectural domains and wider will find their home.
If you know that this is what you want, if all that I have said appeals to you, I recommend it. Take a look at some of the other alternatives that are out there, there are many good ones, and if one has a stand-out feature that appeals to you then go for it, but otherwise, come back to remarkable and grab one, you'll not regret it I am sure.
