The Freewrite Traveler features a 4.76 primary display and a 2.76 inches writing window. They both utilize E INK E-paper and the refresh rate on entered text is pretty solid. The smaller writing window can display a myriad of information, such as folder information, a clock, or even word count and “reading time” based on standard reading speeds. The device boots instantly upon opening, giving you a stark white e-ink page. If you have it paired to a wifi access point then sending your documents to your email inbox in text and PDF format is also instantaneous. It was a USB-C port for charging to a wall outlet or connected to your PC/MAC.

The Traveler adds a couple of new software features, you have the option to move your cursor around a document, rather than forcing users to either erase mistakes with the backspace key or forge straight ahead like they’d do on a traditional typewriter. It’s still inconvenient enough to discourage heavy editing, and you can’t copy and paste text, only insert or delete words. But it’s helpful for going back to fix typos or add a thought to an earlier paragraph. The cursor is controlled by hitting W, A, S, or D in conjunction with a key. The original Freewrite used a satisfying physical toggle to swap between folders, but the Traveler uses three tiny buttons that don’t indicate which draft is currently active.
