CES 2014 is all about tablets and mobile gadgets, but it’s not the only tech trade show in the world. Charbax caught up with Boeye, a Chinese OEM, at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair a while back and got a look at their Android E-ink tablets.
Boeye’s tablets sport a 6″ E-ink screen and run Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a Rockchip RK2906 CPU. They’re ready to be produced now, and there is at least one model with a frontlight and a touchscreen. Boeye is also working on an update which adds Android 4.0, and it should be ready soon. They also offer a number of other models, including a couple devices that are simple ebook readers based on Linux and not Android. They also have 7″ and 8″ Android tablets available for license.
