Onyx’s next ereader looks suspiciously like the Kepler Pro, but you’ll need to visit Russia to be sure.
Launching today in Moscow, the Onyx Boox Monte Cristo is a six inch ereader which runs Android 4.2, and carries the latest 300 ppi Carta E-ink screen.
The Monte Cristo runs on a dual-core 1GHz RK3026 CPU with 512MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot.
It carries a price tag of 10,990 rubbles (about $169 USD), and is a rather basic device given how expensive it is. It has a great screen, a metal shell, and page turn buttons, but there’s no audio or Bluetooth (just Wifi). Plus, the RAM is limited.
Yes, you can install apps from Googple Play (included) but the limited hardware is going to restrict what you can do with the Monte Cristo.
Is it really worth getting?
