A couple of months ago Good e-Reader published our hands on review of the SuperNote A6, when we were on scene for the launch in Japan. Today, we have the unit in our Youtube Studio and conducted a comprehensive analysis of all of the writing features and take a look at the UI and some of the improvements Ratta has made with the software.
The A6 is running the same Linux software as the A5. The main difference is that it has a smaller 7.8 inch screen, whereas the A5 has a 10.3 inch screen. When it comes to drawing and reading, either model should suffice. The A5 is better at PDF editing and viewing, because of the larger screen.
The A6 is employing a 7.8 screen is using E Ink Carta HD and Mobius. The overall resolution is 300 PPI and underneath the hood is a IM6 Solo Lite single core processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It comes with a stock stylus, but the new Heart of Metal series has 10 colors and is made of a high grade brushed aluminum, which is better for drawing.
You can buy the SuperNote A6 from the Good e-Reader Store for $399
