Evernote is an incredibly useful tool, but I constantly find myself distracted by the overly complex UI for the desktop app. I found myself wishing that I could have a stand alone device that is focused on providing a streamlined Evernote experience. I had to mock up a design for the device to get it out of my head. It is far from a practical product idea, I would love to have one.
The basic idea for the EverBook is a small notebook, sized somewhere between a netbook and a smaller laptop, that has a full keyboard, wifi/3g card, microphone and camera (on the back of the screen. The writing experience on the device would offer a minimalist alternative to a Markdown editor. You would have all the wonerfull syncing features that come with Evernote, and you could use richer formatting than is available in Markdown without cluttering the screen with UI.
Below you can see a more clear view on the keyboard for the device. The row of keys along the top would be used for formatting. The keys next to the spacebar that would typically be used for control, alt, etc. would be used for Evernote system functions.
