Hands On With the New Boeye eReaders, Including the 10.3″ T103

boeye-t103-lesen-net-ereader-androidThe Chinese ereader maker Boeye (or Boyue) is at the Frankfurt Book Fair this week, and Johannes Haupt of lesen.net went hands-on with their new and upcoming ereaders including one with a screen size we have never seen before.

According to the video below, the Boeye T103 sports a 10.3" Mobius E-ink screen with a resolution of 1404 x 1872, or about 227.2 PPI.

That is a sharper screen than any of the 9.7" or 13.3" screens on the market (although it pales in comparison to the Kobo Aura One).

That would make the T103 highly appealing - if we knew when it will reach the market, and for how much. But at this point it is still in pre-production. and Johannes didn't say when that would change.

Johannes also got a chance to look at a pre-production sample of the Boeye T65, a 6" ereader with a flush-mounted screen. As you can see in the video, it looks completely different from the T63, Boeye's flagship 6" ereader.

The T63 has page turn buttons, while the T65 is a Kindle featureless black rectangle.

I don't see the appeal, do you?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Is the T103 a mock-up or an actual screen? The background of it looks very close to white with an amazing contrast compared the the other two readers in view.

  2. Boyue T103 – yes please
