The Onyx Boox Note Pro is now available and this e-reader features a large 10.3 inch screen and the main selling points is that it has a glowlight and color temperature system. This will allow users to work in all lightning conditions now.
The Note PRO features a 10.3 inch E-ink Mobius and Carta HD display and a resolution of 1872×1404 and 227 PPI. It has a WACOM screen for the stylus and a capacitive touchscreen for interactions involving swipes and gestures. The PRO will also feature the same glass based display as the Note Plus, so the screen will not get damaged no matter how hard you press on the stylus, and doesn’t really need a screen protector.
Speaking of the stylus, it has 4,096 different degrees of pressure sensitivity, which makes it more intuitive to draw and take notes. The Sony Digital Paper product line does not have pressure sensitivity.
Underneath the hood is a 1.6GHZ quad core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual speakers, mic, Bluetooth 4.0, USB C and WIFI. Onyx was the first e-reader company to employ a quad processor and it dramatically increases the performance of navigating around the device, surfing the internet, turning the pages of a book or using Android apps. It has Android 6.0 and has Google Play available.
Will you buy the Note Pro? It is a solid device to take notes and the glowlight system is fairly good, the price is a respectable $599. There are a few competitors on the market such as the Likebook Mimas and the upcoming Wisky EE Pad.
