A wide audience can appreciate the Good e-Reader 10.3. It is great in the office, job sites or at the beach. Our E Ink screen technology does not get glare from the sun like smartphones and tablets do. This is because e-paper screens reflect light it does not emit light.
Good e-Reader has been one of the most popular news websites in the world since 2007. We have been chronicling the industry since the first Kindle came out and have been following it closely ever since. Every day we write numerous stories and talk to all of the key executives. This has given us a unique perspective on where gaps exist in the market.
Over the past three years we have been involved in the hardware and brought to market a 6.8 and 13.3 e-reader and digital note taker. They were huge successes and we shipped out over one thousand devices. I feel there is a need for a 10.3 inch that is relevant in 2018. The biggest advantage we have against Onyx Boox Note, Remarkable or Sony Digital paper is that we are way more affordable AND provide a front-light and comfortlight. We also provide a unique user experience that is similar to our competition, so you will feel right at home on the Good e-Reader 10.3.
We have a number of cool stretch goals planned, such as Android 8.1 and a totally revised UI and handwriting experience.
Purchase a 10.3 today and we should have them at your door by November 2018!
