Japan's King Jim is announcing a US version of the Pomera, an E Ink typewriter designed purely for word processing. You won't have notifications or distracting apps to get in the way of your writing, just a simple word processor, nothing more, nothing less. It's perfect for writers who find today's technologies incredibly distracting because the last thing you need to be doing is playing a round of Angry Birds when you're having writer's block. The Pomera has about 20 hours of battery life, which is powered by two AA batteries and features a full QWERTY keyboard that is set in a Japanese-style layout.
King Jim has opened a Kickstarter to crowdfund the device and delivery is set for November of this year.
