Onyx Boox has just announced their second generation 13.3 inch e-reader and instead of using an E Ink Mobius screen, it is employing Carta. It continues to rely on the stylus and does not have a touchscreen layer.
The Onyx Boox Max Carta features a 13.3 inch E Ink Carta display with resolution of 2200 x 1650. It is using a 1GHz CPU and has 1GB of RAM. There is 16GB of internal storage and if this is not enough you can expand it up to 32GB via the SD.
You can connect up to the internet via WIFI and it also has Bluetooth, but I am not sure it has a USB host controller for a keyboard. It ships with Android 4.0, but Onyx says it will support 4.4 sometimes in the future. There is also a speaker and a 3.5mm headphone jack to listen to music or audiobooks and it also has a tiny microphone.
The Onyx Boox Carta is retailing for $853 US and is up for pre-order and they say it is shipping out on April 20th.
