Users picked high-end features for the first crowd-sourced tablet, which the Finnish consumer electronics firm Eve Tech will bring to market this summer.
“The crowd has now – for the first ever in the history of consumer electronics – defined from the get-go what the optimal device should hold as its specifications and design,” co-founder Konstantinos Karatsevidis told ArcticStartup.
The device will come with:
- Display: 12-12.5″ LCD IPS 2160x1440p or better
- Processor: Intel© 6th generation Core m 6YXX “Skylake”
- RAM: LPDDR3, 8GB or more
- Digital Pen: Digitizer enabled Pen, 256 pressure levels or more
- Storage: Solid State Drive (SSD), options: 128GB, 256GB or better
- Battery: 10 hours or better

The 2-in-1 tablet is going to cost less than 1000$. Eve Tech was actually born to fight high device prices. The key for that is fully online sales, which cuts half of the price.
Eve’s first tablet T1 was launched in December 2014, selling for 159 euros for features seen on 300 euro tablet. It sold out in a few days. Eve produced a couple of more batches before it discontinued the model and the team focused on the new project code-named “Pyramid Flipper”.
For T1 all decisions were made internally. Most feedback was positive, but many started to pick on particular details. To tackle this Eve launched first a WhatsApp group to discuss details with the loyal fans and then took it one step beyond, opening the community page on its homepage.
