Boyue T62 Mega eReader with 300 PPI Carta and Android for $120

Boyue T62 Mega

Boyue Technology has released several Android-powered E Ink ebook readers over the past few years, sometimes under other company’s names, and now they’ve got another version of the T62 that’s just turned up on Banggood.

The Boyue T62 Mega is available for pre-order for $120 USD with free shipping.

It’s expected to get released a month from now on June 22nd.

Like other Boyue ereaders, the T62 Mega runs Android 4.2.2 and can install apps. It supports EPUB and PDF and a number of other formats.

I’m not sure what makes it “Mega” but it has a 6-inch 300 PPI E Ink Carta screen with a frontlight, and it has physical page buttons on both sides of the screen like the original T62.

It features a dual core 1.0GHz processor and comes with 8GB of internal storage space and it has a microSD card slot for expansion. It also supports audio via a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The weird thing about this model is it’s not much different from the Boyue T63 JDRead that sells on Banggood for $17 more. That model has a flush glass screen and no audio support but otherwise the specs are nearly identical. The design is a lot different though.

  1. Kinda looks like the Nook Simple Touch to me…

    • I have both a Nook Simple Touch and the previous model of the Bogue T62. Yes, the look and feel are very similar. The big differences are that the Boyue has Android and a back light.

      The Nook is actually based on Android but it is necessary to root it to actually use it as an Android tablet. Even with doing this, it is more limited and does not run Android as well as the Bogue.

  2. The two questions I would have with this is whether the increase to 300 ppi compared to the previous T62 is noticeable, and whether this can be rooted plus installing Google apps.

    These days getting Google Drive is particularly important as Dropbox no longer works with Moon+ Reader to synchronize position. I don’t know if Google Drive can be used without full installation of gapps.
