Eve V is an ultrabook hybrid computer that resembles the Surface devices manufactured by Microsoft. The product is manufactured by the Finnish company Eve, and will be launched soon on Indiegogo. The device comes in three possible configurations, but doesn’t include the V Pen.
While the Surface devices showed versatility thanks to the detachable keyboard that can turn the laptop into a tablet, Eve V comes in the form of a tablet from the get-go, but each purchase also includes a wireless keyboard. While this bundle achieves at least in theory the same level of comfort and versatility as the Surface, some would agree that the detachable keyboard on the Surface hybrid is a really cool feature.
As for the specifications, Eve recently made them public, and it seems we are looking at three models. Eve V comes with an Intel Core m3, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage. The medium range version features the same 8 GB of RAM, but an improved local storage capacity of 256 GB, also through SSD, and a better processing chip in the form of the Intel Core i5.
The last model features a powerful Intel Core i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM. The total storage space available is also upped to 512 GB SSD.
There were talks related to a GPS module, but nothing is certain yet. Eve specified that the WiFi model would test out how the GPS function goes and decide if the GPS module is worth implementing in all the other versions of the hybrid, as well. According to Eve, we can expect the basic Eve V model to drop for under $1000, which is not quite comforting.
