Eve V tablet goes up for grabs as part of flash sale

Eve's Surface competitor, the crowd-designed Eve V, is now up for grabs – if you're quick enough.

Now that the Eve V tablet has started shipping out to its initial backers, Eve has put the Surface competitor up for sale for anyone. That said, you'll have to be quick: due to a limited quantity of devices available, Eve is making this initial round a flash sale, allowing people to order the Eve V on a first come first serve basis.

We recently went hands-on with the Eve V and came away pretty impressed. The tablet comes in several different configurations, with up to a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, and a 48Wh battery that Eve claims will last up to 12 hours. That's in addition to the device's 12.3-inch IGZO LCD 2880 x 1920 screen, a fingerprint sensor, and cameras of 2MP and 5MP on the front and rear, respectively.

As for design, it's pretty obvious from where the Eve V pulls its inspiration. There's a Surface Pro-like kickstand included, as well as a detachable keyboard. The catch is that the Eve V comes in cheaper than the Surface Pro, starting out at $799 and moving up to $1,999 depending on your choice of model.

The Eve V is available now from Eve in the U.S. and in Europe. For the first portion of the sale, Eve says it will also take $50 off the price for anyone using code FLASH50.
