The Onyx Boox Lynx is the latest generation e-reader and was just released in the last few weeks. This device pioneers the concept of open Android and has Google Play preloaded on it. Today, we compare the core reading experience between the T68 and the Kindle Paperwhite 2.
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2 features a six inch e-Ink display screen with a resolution of 1024×768. The front-lit display has received a small upgrade and gives a better illumination experience then the previous model. One of the neat little features is a software enhancement called “Max” which instantly brings the brightness level to the maximum. Underneath the hood is a 1GHZ processor and 256 MB of RAM. There is 2 GB of internal storage and the majority of your content will be held in the cloud
The Lynx e-reader is very much akin to the Kobo Aura HD, in terms of specs. It features a 6.8 e-Ink capacitive Ultra HD EPD display screen and a resolution of 1440×1080 pixels. Underneath the hood is a Freescale i.MX Cortex A9 1.0GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Books are stored on the device and has 4GB of internal storage with the option to increase it via the Micro SD Card up to 64GB.
In the following video review we look at the e-reading experience, main menu and everything that makes these devices unique. If you are in the market for the latest generation eBook Reader, you don’t want to miss this.
