The first thing you notice when you remove the Scribbler SC-2100 from the box is the ice white pearl finish of the case, which sets the look of the Scribbler apart from other tablet PC's. While
aesthetics are not important to everyone, they are very important to some. For those drawn to straight clean lines the Scribbler is an eye catching machine.
Every element of design that went into the SC-2100 was with the user in mind. Form follows function and everything is designed to make the out of box user experience as user friendly as possible, including the fingerprint scanner.
Electrovaya is know for its long life battery, and the Scribbler SC-2100 is no exception, we got and amazing 5 Hours 8 minutes of battery life with the Tablet running in always on mode, with the wireless on, no standby, no hibernate and the screen and hard drive set to always on.
Like the Sahara, the Scribble is a 1.3 ghz slate style Tablet PC, which is the fastest processor available currently shipping. With 768 ram installed the Scribblers boot time is just over 60 seconds, has a beautiful display and runs every program we tried flawlessly.
Buttons Galore: conveniently placed buttons on both the right and left sides of the scribbler give you access to Power On/Off, Rotate Screen Layout, Windows Security/Task Manager, Windows Start Menu toggle, Windows Journal - Open New, On-screen Keyboard toggle, Escape (Esc) Function for Tablet Buttons, Wireless, Direction Ball + Enter
The scribble has a Cover-Stand-Keyboard-Touch pad combo (shown above) that can be attached in landscape mode and used with or with out the touch pad. As the scribblers long life battery adds weight to the machine, the cover-keyboard combo is not designed with durability in mind. Its designed as A convenience accessory that allows you to protect the screen of your Tablet PC while traveling and give you the convenience of having an attachable keyboard should you need one on the fly.
While it may seem a bit on the flimsy side, the keyboard-cover does what it is designed to do. Lightweight and easy to use, it works equally well on a conference table or an airplane tray. While we still recomend a docking station for Slate style Tablet users, if the aditional cost of the docking station is prohibitive, the
In 2003 Electrovaya was first to launch the fingerprint sensor on a Tablet PC. And hands down no question about it it is the easiest to set up and most usable biometric system I have encountered.
When the Scribbler boots your greeted with a screen that asks if you want to enroll a fingerprint and then takes you through the process with both photos and speech . The program literally"talks" you through the process. You choose which finger you want to use, It scans up to 8 samples of your finger print and it works. No jumping through hoops, no frustration, no spending hours trying to set it up, within a minute or two its set up and working.
Another thing worth noting is that the scribbler comes with both a users manual and a quick set up guide. both of which are easy to use and find what you need in.
