Onyx Boox Poke2 Color Now Available for $299
The Boox Poke2 Color is a variant of the $189 ereader that Onyx launched in April. It has similar great specs, only with the addition of a Kaleido E-ink screen.
The Onyx Boox Poke2 Color runs Android 9.0 on a 2GHz octa-core CPU with 2GB RAM. It also has 32 GB storage, Wifi, and Bluetooth,. Battery capacity is 1.5Ah, which can be recharged through the micro-USB port.
This ereader’s 6″ E-ink screen comes with both a capacitive touchscreen and a frontlight (but not a color-changing frontlight). Its most notable feature is the 6″ Kaleido E-ink display, which is capable of displaying grayscale at 1072 x 1448 (PPI), or displaying color at 100 PPI.
EDIT: And it’s sold out.
I had been hoping to get a review unit from Onyx, but I haven’t gotten a response yet. So I went out and bought one.
I am hoping it will arrive next week.
