The Onyx Boox Note Lite is a new e-reader that has the same design as the 10.3 Note that was released earlier this year. The main difference is that it does not have a digitizer layer or come with a stylus, it is a dedicated ebook reader that has Android 6.0 and incorporates an ultra fast quad-core processor.
I believe this is the only 10.3 inch e-reader on the market that does not have any note taking functionality. This helps reduce the price by over $10o, which makes it a viable investment.
The Note Lite features a 10.3 inch flexible capacitive touchscreen display with E Ink Carta. The resolution is 1872×1404 and 227 PPI. Underneath the hood is a 1.6GHZ quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, dual speakers, mic, Bluetooth, 32GB of storage and USB C. Sadly it does not have a front-lit display, so you will not be able to read in the dark.
This device is running Android 6.0 and it has Google Play. Onyx has developed their own app store which will also be pre-loaded and although it only has 26 apps available on it, all of the apps have been optimized for the Onyx Lite. For example, the Kindle app has been customized to have no animated page turns, so reading your books is lightning quick.
The Note Lite retails for $469 dollars and can be purchased from the Good e-Reader Store.
