The Onyx Boox Poke 2 Color is the first Android driven e-reader with a full color touchscreen, Google Play and a great multimedia experience. You can download Amazon Kindle, Overdrive Libby, Kobo and any other Android app that you want. Onyx has 4 great speed modes to increase performance of running apps, watching Youtube videos or playing games, all on a fully functional color display.
The Poke 2 Color features a six inch E INK Carta HD Display with a resolution of 1072×1448 with 300 PPI. The color panel can display over 4,096 different colors with 100 PPI. The screen is sunken, so it doesn’t have a layer of glass on top of it. It also has a front-lit display, so you can read at night or during low light conditions.
Underneath the hood is an Octa-core 2.0 GHZ processor, 32GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM. It is powered by a 1,500 mAh battery. One of the only downsides of this device is the lack of a USB-C port, instead it is employing a Micro USB port with OTG. What is OTG? It basically allows you to plugin accessories into the USB port and they will just work, with no drivers necessary. This includes keyboards, mice, foot pedals, USB expansion slots and the like. It also has WIFI 2.4 and 5HZ for blazeningly quick internet speed and also Bluetooth 4.1 for wireless accessories and a microphone for things like Discord chat or Skype Messaging.
This unit comes with a free grey case.
