Onyx to Launch the Poke eReader, e-Music Score at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair

Thanks to a tip from a reader I am pleased to report that Onyx has revealed the new devices they will be showing off at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair in the coming weeks.

There are only a couple new ereaders in the brochure (PDF) beside the models previously announced, and that means we probably won't be seeing much in the way of new hardware this year.

The brochure mentions the following existing models:

Onyx is also going to show off the e-Music Score, a device that is basically just a white Max 2 turned on its side and given more storage.

e-Music Score

  • CPU: 1.6GHz quad-core
  • Screen: 13.3" Mobius Carta, 2200 x 1650 resolution
  • OS: Android 6.0
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Touchscreen: Wacom stylus, capacitive touch
  • Connectivity: Wifi, BT
  • Ports: microHDMI
  • Speaker, mic
  • Battery: 4.1Ah
  • Size: 325 x 237 x 7.5mm
  • Weight: 550 grams

The image in the brochure also shows little foot pedal page turn buttons, which is nice. It's kinda weird, though, that the e-Music Score is shown in landscape orientation; sheet music is usually displayed in portrait orientation, so one would think that the digital version would follow suit.

Onyx also showed off a new 9.7" ereader called the Onyx Boox Note S. It has a new OS, but an old low-res screen.

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."
