A Finland based company has raised the bar in the world of tablet computers with their new Eve V Windows 10 device. After launching a successful crowdfunding campaign the company has announced that production for the Eve V tablet is scheduled to start on April 25, 2017.
Eve smashed their $75,000 fundraising goal in just one hour after launching their campaign and went on to raise over $1.4M USD from over 4,200 backers.
High End Specs Without High End Prices
What sets the Eve V apart from other tablet computers on the market is its supremely high end specs and unbeatable price. Not something you typically hear in the same sentence. Eve saw a major problem in the tablet computer industry and with the help of the crowd set out to solve it. That problem of course being the middleman. Typically when you purchase a tablet computer, or any mobile device for that matter, you end up paying a lot more for the device than what it costs to make. The reason for this is you pay additional agent, distributor, bloatware, and retailer fees. With Eve there are no middlemen between them and their customers.
Eve states the following on their website:
Many brands boost their income by pre-installing their devices full of extra software. They get royalty payments, you get the bloatware and reduced performance.
