Hands On With the New Boeye eReaders, Including the 10.3″ T103
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?
