What’s the difference?
When we first got to work on the Rocketbook Pro over two years ago, one of the core design tenets was to make it look professional and minimalist. So, we’ve given the New Rocketbook Pro a sleeker design, an updated vegan leather hardcover that can be folded 360 degrees to lay flat, and even added a couple new color options, too. The letter size model, specifically, is also a bit smaller, to cut down on bulk.
You told us you wanted something durable, scratch-resistant and professional looking, so that’s exactly what we built.
Also upgraded are the notebooks digital capabilities. Not only does every page still feature a built in Smart Title Bar and Smart Tag Box - the New Pro now has an embedded NFC hotspot that can allow you to open the Rocketbook app by simply tapping your phone to the inside cover!
Why did we remove the Pen Holder (i.e. Pen Pool)?
We loved the functionality of the Pen Holder, but after getting feedback from users, they noted that the slight unevenness of the front cover was affecting how the Cover would lay flat. Furthermore, one of the core design tenets of this notebook was to make it look professional, sleek, and minimalist. We thought that removing the Pen Holder would help us achieve this design objective.
A great way to keep your pen and New Rocketbook Pro together is by clipping the pen directly onto the cover:
Why did you make the Letter size smaller?
We got feedback from users that the Original Pro Letter size was a bit bulky and heavy. Again, this was going against our design tenet of having more of a sleek product. Given that the page pack dimensions were 8.5 x 11 inches, the Cover would be larger at 9.25 x 11.5 inches. As a result, we decreased the New Pro Letter Cover dimensions to 8.5 x 11 inches and the New Pro Letter Page Pack dimensions to 7.7165 x 10.5 inches. After experimenting with different dimensions, we felt like this new dimension hit the sweet spot.
Note: It is not recommended to use letter size Original Pro Page Packs with the letter size New Pro Cover. Letter size Original Pro Page Packs are best if used with the letter size Original Rocketbook Pro that contains built-in pen holder. Learn more here.
