ONYX BOOX Darwin eReader Updated in Russia – Carta Plus Android for $194

MacCentre, the official Onyx retail partner for Russia, will soon be selling an updated version of the BOOX C67ML Darwin ereader.

Due out some time next month, the new model will sport a Carta E-ink screen and run Android on a dual-core CPU.

ONYX BOOX Darwin eReader Updated in Russia - Carta Plus Android for $194 e-Reading Hardware

Weighing in at 169 grams, the new Darwin ereader packs a 1.7Ah battery into a case 8.7mm thin. It has a frontlight, a capacitive touchscreen, a microSD Card slot, and Wifi.

The Darwin runs Android 4.2 on a dual-core 1GHz CPU with 512MB RAM and 8GB internal storage. In terms of software, it will ship Onyx's reading app as well as with Google Play and basic Android apps (web browser, calculator, email, etc).

From what I can read of past news coverage, the new Darwin is largely identical to the previous model. Just about the only change I can see would be the addition of a Carta E-ink display (screen resolution 758 x 1024). The Darwin also lacks the headphone jack and audio support found on the stock model on the Onyx website.

The new Darwin model is going to cost 9090 rubles (or about $194) when it ships next month. MacCentre is also going to offer an optional smartcover.

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."
