Hands On with the One-Handed Onyx Boox Ligo (video)
Chinese ereader maker Onyx was less than forthcoming when they announced their new models last week; they left out the most interesting model.
Onyx is working on a Kindle Oasis clone called the Ligo. While it has very similar specs to Onyx’s other new ereader, the Poke, the Ligo takes after the Oasis by having page turn buttons only on one side of the screen.
The Poke and the Ligo run Android 6.0 on a quad-core 1.2GHza CPU with 512MB or 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. They have a 6″ E-ink screen with frontlight and screen resolution of 1448 x 1072.
Both ereaders have a 2.5 Ah battery and Wifi, and they have been cursed with a USB type-C port. They ship with Google Play Store pre-installed, which will then allow you to install thousands of Android applications including the most popular for reading: Aldiko for the Epub, but also Kindle, Kobo, and Tolino.
You can see the Poke and the Ligo in the video below (the Ligo is shown at 2:10).
