Another Boyue T65s (Likebook Air) Turns up for Pre-Order

Bouye T65s

About a month ago the 7.8-inch Likebook Plus and 6-inch Likebook Air turned up for sale from Banggood, and now they’ve got a second Likebook Air up for pre-order.

It appears to be exactly the same as the other model with the exception that it has 8GB of storage space and 512MB of RAM instead of 16GB of space and 1GB of RAM.

With a pre-order price of $116, the Boyue T65s sells for about $50 less than the version with more storage.

However, Banggood’s pre-order prices are unusual. The price goes up with more orders. The regular price is listed as $131, but you can usually find coupon codes online to take more off.

The Bouye T65s (or Likebook Air) is a 6-inch frontlit ebook reader with a 300 ppi E Ink Carta display. It runs Android 4.2.2 and is open to install apps.

The built-in reading app supports ePub, PDF, MOBI, TXT, FB2, RTF, HTML, and some other formats.

It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a capacitive touchscreen, but there doesn’t appear to be any memory card slot like on previous Boyue models.

According to the listing, it’s supposed to start shipping after January 10th.

  1. Thank you. For me, it’s best the other Boyue likebook Air. 16gb and 1gb ram. And the 7,8″ too.

  2. I like the physical specs of this, but the use of Android 4.2.2 is likely a deal breaker. This is a 2012 operating system! I like to be able to sync clouds to my e-readers, and these antique versions of Android won’t allow that. Google Drive now requires Android 5.0, e.g. Why do so many black and white e-readers use 6 year old operating systems? Too many apps may not work correctly with them. I am willing to get older versions of some apps to work around this problem, but when some major apps like clouds don’t work on 4.2.2, I am less interested. Nathan: do you know of any Android e-readers that use Android 5.0 or higher?
