ArtaTech has launched a second new ereader this month, and this time it is a new basic Kindle competitor called the InkBook Classic 2. The new device is listed on ArtaTech's website and also on Amazon.com.
The InkBook Classic 2 is an upgrade and replacement for the model which launched last year in Europe. The new model features a 6" Carta E-ink screen (800 x 600 resolution) with a touchscreen but no frontlight.
It runs Android 4.2 on a dual-core CPU with 512MB RAM. In terms of storage it has 4GB internal, and a microSD card slot. It has Wifi but no Bluetooth or audio.
The InkBook Classic 2 also has an unusually contoured back, and page buttons on either side of the screen.
Like the Inkbook Prime, the Classic 2 was announced last month at the Frankfurt Book Fair. It is briefly shown in the following video, but only briefly:
If you had to choose between the two InkBook models, the latter model is the the better value.
