Eve has put its Surface competitor, the Eve V, up for sale again. As was the case in the previous sale, this flash sale, which is now live at Eve's website, is running with a limited quantity of devices available on a first come first serve basis.
We've previously gone hands-on with the Eve V and came away impressed. The tablet is available in a number of different configurations, with up to a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, and battery life of up to 12 hours, Eve claims. The display is a 12.3-inch 2880 x 1920 IGZO LCD panel, and the Eve V manages to pack in a fingerprint sensor, along with cameras of 2MP and 5MP on the front and rear, respectively.
The design of the Eve V is pretty similar to Microsoft's Surface line, including a kickstand and a detachable keyboard. As for pricing, the Eve V starts out at $799 and tops out at $1,999 depending on which model you choose.
If you're interested in the Eve V, you'll want to act fast and put in an order before the flash sale ends. Eve is splitting sales up between sites depending on your region, with U.S. and international sales available at one site, and European sales at another.

I do love my surface device, however I am going to take a good look at this one since the whole light bleed spill that is going on with the new surface pro and aggressive pricing on microsoft's 16gb models..
Same. I love my surface Pro I but its so expensive!
Remember a year and a half ago when the Eve collective showed up here, attacking people for daring to buy a different product that did not have the Eve name on it, astroturfing, and more or less driving anyone away who may considered buying this product? They were attacking others for not waiting for this device to be shipped. And it took over a year. Funny thing is about 6 months ago I heard about this device again and went to their web site to see what was happening with it. They had a big link on their web site linking back to WC. I clicked on it and all the collective attacks had been scrubbed from this site (way to go, WC) - but from that article only and can still be found in other articles. Now, the only link on the Eve web site that makes it sound like WC was giving them a glorious review goes to a press release on Eve's own web site.
I just checked out a mobile tech review to find that they put a gimped processor equivalent to the core M series, which are the core Y series "why" indeed. Well that removes my interest since I do carry my surface in my camera bag when I am on vacation or doing a shoot to process photos. Also the Y series of processors only supports DDR3 memory even with the thunderbolt 3 connector it will bottleneck with an e-GPU.
the M3 entry model received a price increase since the previous flash sale. Now at €959.
