The Boogie Board Rip tablet combines the exceptional, paper-like writing experience of all Boogie Board eWriters with the highly-anticipated ability to record written notes/images and save them as .pdf files. Saved files can then be uploaded to a computer for editing, organizing, archiving and/or sharing.
