Eve V crowdsourced 2-in-1 receives its final specs and they are awesome

eve v crowdsourced windows 10 2 in 1 final specs
One of the more interesting Windows 10 2-in-1 devices so far is the Eve V, a machine that has been designed as a crowdsourced device from the ground up. Virtually every aspect of the Eve V, from its basic shape to its components and features were developed based on input from the community that company fostered at eve.community.

Now, the very Surface Pro 4-like machine is getting close to its official release on Indiegogo and the company posted the final hardware specifications on their site Thursday. As you can see from the information below, Eve’s community has obviously pushed for and is receiving, some industry-leading parts.

  • CPU: Intel 7th Gen Core M3/i5/i7
  • RAM: 8GB/16GB LPDDR3
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB SSD
  • Connectivity: 801.11ac Wi-Fi with 2×2 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 4.2, Wireless Display Wi-Fi
  • Ports: 1 x Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C, 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C, 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 USB-A, 1 x 3.5mm audio, 1 x MicroSDXC reader
  • Display: 12.3-inch IGZO LCD, 2736X1824 resolution, 1:1400 contrast ratio, 450 nits brightness
  • Touch Panel: Gorilla Glass with Anti-Fingerprint and Anti-Reflection coating, Metal Mesh technology
  • Battery: 48Wh
  • Sensors: Fingerprint, Hall, Gravity, Light, Gyroscope, GPS
  • Audio: Quad speaker at 1W each, dedicated headphone jack audio amplifier by TI, 2 noise-canceling microphones
  • Cameras: 2MP front, 5MP rear
  • Stylus: N-trig, Surface compatible, 1024 pressure levels, two buttons
  • Keyboard: Pogo-Pin and Wireless keyboard with backlight, latest glass ClickPad by Synaptics, Bluetooth 4.2 support for up to three devices, 15 hours of battery life
  • OS: Windows 10

That is just about a dream team of components and would likely meet most items on a Surface Pro 4 owner’s wishlist for a Surface Pro 5. The battery exceeds Microsoft’s version by a full 10 watts, the display should at least compete with the Surface Pro 4’s excellent screen and its connectivity options are far superior. Even audio support is enhanced, with four speakers and an amplifier for the audio jack.

Given that the Eve V is expected to start out at a competitive $900 base price, and given its up-to-date components like Intel’s Kaby Lake CPU, the only questions remaining for someone looking for a new Windows 10 2-in-1 in the tablet-first configuration are: will Eve be able to produce the machine at volume with the expected quality and reliability. And, can a small company like this provide adequate support?

According to a recent Ask Me Anything session, the Eve team is convinced that they will be able to produce the Eve V to meet the expected demand and will be able to support it as required. If they can, then a buyer would be remiss in failing to at least consider the machine.
