After two weeks of excruciating uncertainty, my Poke2 Color arrived via DHL today. Onyx’s first color ereader is a small nondescript black rectangle that arrived in a nondescript cardboard box. It has a much less ornate design than the Pocketbook Color (you’d almost think Onyx and Kobo shared designers).
This ereader runs Android, and comes with its own appstore (the selection is rather limited). So tell me, what do you want me to test on it?
I’d love to answer any questions you may have. At the moment I am planning to write a review for each device, and a comparison review.
I hope I am not spoiling the comparison review for you if I tell you that the Pocketbook Color is hands down the better color ereader. While the two devices have the same screen, the PB Color is much better at displaying color images. (The software makes a huge difference.)
While I have only had the Poke2 Color for about an hour, the difference in quality could not be more obvious. The PB Color will display an image with colors that are vivid and sharp, while the Poke2 Color will display the same image from the same ebook in warmer and fuzzier tones. (Also, the Poke2 Color has considerable ghosting issues.)
