I got an Onyx Boox Nova3! I have been playing with it a little it and will likely share more impressions later, but in a nutshell: it’s an e-ink Android tablet, and that is DOPE.
@cassidyjames That's...surprisingly cool looking, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit intrigued about trying it out. :)
@cassidyjames well actually you can separate them to get the colour temperature you want and then have it be a brightness slider 😏
I'm orientating myself on e-ink myself and the Onyx Boox range are very tempting. However for my use case (digital music sheets) I need at least a 10" and those are pretty pricey! (Let alone the 13.3"!!!)
@cassidyjames how well does it handle regular apps? I saw on a store site that they suggest using their approved app store, makes me wonder if there are big issues with the non approved ones.
@knotteye I mean, it is e-ink. So it is not at all the same as a modern LCD or OLED—nor trying to be. It looks and feels like e-ink and you have to be okay with that. It has a few display modes you can adjust globally or per-app to optimize for image fidelity versus lower latency.
@cassidyjames ooh, I'm intrigued. I'll have to look at the pricepoint in case I can finally retire my broken old zenpad
@albi you could probably rig something up. The larger tablets advertise support for that, but this one does not.
