The Onyx Boox Note Lite is a new 10.3 inch e-reader that forgoes the WACOM digitizer layer and only has a capacitive touchscreen display. The Note Lite is geared towards people who want a large screen e-reader to read comics, books, manga, magazines, newspapers and PDF documents.
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.
