Onyx Boox C67s Android eReader On Sale for $59


Onyx Boox C67s

In this day and age it’s rare to come across an E Ink ebook reader for under $60.

In fact it pretty much never happens except when Amazon puts the entry-level Kindle on sale for $59, and even it includes advertisements at that price and it costs an extra $20 to remove them.

So it’s pretty surprising to see the Onyx Boox C67s ereader on sale for $59 with free shipping.

It’s a basic ebook reader that lacks a touchscreen, a frontlight and Wi-Fi, but for the price it has some good things going for it.

The Boox C67s has a 6-inch E Ink Carta screen with a resolution of 1024 x 758, so that’s an upgrade over other entry-level ereaders that have an 800 x 600 resolution Pearl screen like the Kindle.

The device comes with 8GB of internal storage space with a microSD card slot for expansion, and it has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, so as far as specs it’s a good value for the price.

It even supports audio and has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The biggest limitation is the fact that it doesn’t have a touchscreen, especially when it comes to Android so it won’t be able to install or use 3rd party apps very easily even though it runs Android 4.2.2 (without a touchscreen it will simply be impossible to use most Android apps).

But at that price it’s one of the cheapest ereaders on the market, and it supports EPUB, PDF, TXT, CHM, DOC, and MOBI formats.

  1. This has nothing to do with the current topic but have you noticed that the Kindle Voyage is currently out of stock until May 5? This practically hasn’t happened since it was initially released, and I seriously doubt that the demand is suddenly high since it was released 2 1/2 years ago. This normally happens when Amazon is phasing out a product and prepping for a new version release. What do you think?

    • Perhaps. I thought the same thing about the Fire HD 10 because it’s been in and out of stock a lot the past couple of months but so far nothing has come of it.

  2. Sold out currently, from the articles link.

  3. At this advanced stage of ereaders it’s strange that some do not come with a front light. That was acceptable for early models but not now. I’ve been interested in Boox and another model similar to it for a while so I hope the price continues in this reasonable vein.

    • For a mid-end or high-end e-reader I’d agree with you, but if not having a front light on a basic e-reader will save me $20 off the price, then I’d prefer to save $20 instead of the front light.

      It is all about how much that feature is worth to you. For me I do not consider a front light as that valuable of a feature. Some people do some people don’t…

      • I’m still rooting for a basic kindle @ 300ppi and 7″. That doesn’t undercut the current lineup as it isn’t front lit. Now you may be asking why? Well because Kindle quality control is absolutely atrocious and front lit Kindles are garbage as they are unevenly lit. It’s like finding a golden ticket in Willy Wonka’s factory. You Might get lucky but the 99% of you won’t. So it really isn’t worth going through the hassle of exchanges. Anyway it’s not gonna happen but it’s good to dream.

  4. It’s a good feature set for a basic e-reader.

    Wi-Fi and touch screen I can easily live without on a basic e-reader.

    Nice to see expandable memory support.
