Onyx Boox Note Air has a 10.3″ E-ink Screen, Color-Changing Frontlight (video)

Onyx launched two new ereaders on Sunday. The first is the Lumi, and the second is the Boox Note Air.

The Note Air is an update to Onyx”s 10.3″ ereader which adds an improved frontlight, better CPU, an improved writing experience. Like the Max Lumi, the Note Air runs Android 10 and is designed to compete in the tablet space. It is intended to be a replacement for the iPad, and it is priced low enough that it is a viable alternative.

The Note Air is going to ship early next month. Its retail price is $479.

    I think that doubling the internal storage would have cost almost nothing and would make the tablet more useful for someone considering an e-ink tablet. At that price I might be tempted, but 32G is going to fill up pretty soon, even if you don’t install many apps. Nowadays, a lot of apps default to internal storage and is kind of a pain to make them work with an external SD card, not imposible mostly, but you have to look how to set that up for each app you use.
    On the other hand, the customer target is going to be mostly computer savvy, so it’s not going to be a big problem, but given the increasing size of Android apps, doubling the internal storage would have been better.

      Agreed. It makes no sense that they cut the storage in half from the last model.
