The 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?
