The InkBook e-reader was made in co-operation with BOYUE and Arta Tech Onyx Europe. This device has an e Ink Carta display, which gives the same core reading experience as the Kobo H2O and Kindle Voyage.
The InkBook features a six inch e Ink Carta display and a resolution of 1024 x 758 px (212 dpi). It has a built in lighting system that allows you to read in the dark. This new e-reader does have a touchscreen, but also physical page turn buttons on the left and right side.
Underneath the hood is a Dual-Core Cortex A9 1.0GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. There is 8 GB of internal storage, which is double what most companies use. If this isn’t enough, you can take advantage of the MicroSD to expand it up to 32 GB.
This e-reader seems fairly ideal, it has support for multi-touch gestures, so you can easily pinch and zoom PDF documents. It also has support for users to load in their own dictionaries, which should appeal to the type that are chronically unhappy with the default ones.
Is this e-reader worth you time? Boyue and Arta Tech Onyx Europe are not household names, and their devices aren’t normally commercially available. You will never seen them in a retail environment the company primarily uses an online environment to sell their products. The average person will likely have never heard of them.
The InkBook is available right now for 124 € and is available to order from HERE.
