10.3-inch Onyx Boox Note Now Available at Amazon

Onyx Boox Note

The much-anticipated Onyx Boox Note is finally available to purchase from Amazon.

The price is $549.99 with free shipping, and it’s available with Amazon Prime so you can get it with free 2-day delivery and have it by the end of the week.

That’s $50 less than the Sony DPT-CP1, which has the same 10.3-inch E Ink screen. It turned up for pre-order on Amazon last week but it’s mysteriously gone now.

I’ve been checking the product page for the new Onyx Boox Note every day and it’s good to finally see it available to purchase, although it’ll probably sell out pretty quickly.

At $250 less than the 13.3-inch Onyx Boox Max2, it’s a nice alternative for those that want a larger device for taking notes and ereading but don’t need the super larger screen and HDMI port found on the Max2.

Otherwise the two devices are very similar. The Onyx Boox Note runs Android 6.0 and it has a quad-core 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space.

It has a capacitive touchscreen for finger touch and a Wacom touchscreen to use the included stylus pen to write notes and draw sketches. The stylus supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 and a USB C port. It also supports audio and comes with a mic and dual speakers. It measures 249.5 x 177.8 x 6.8 mm and weighs 325 grams.

Onyx’s software supports a wide variety of formats, including PDF, ePub, MOBI, TXT, DJVU, FB2, HTML and others. Plus it can install Android apps to add support for additional formats.

Check back next week for a video review and first impressions review!

  1. Still to overpriced for me!!! Good grief!!!

    • It’s among the very first devices to have a flexible 10.3″ E Ink screen so it isn’t going to be cheap. 😀 The Kindle DX used to sell for $489 and it wasn’t anywhere close to the same level as this. It didn’t even have a touchscreen.

  2. Can’t wait for your video review and first impressions review… I’m guessing you bought one 😉

  3. I am waiting to be avaible for purchase from banggood and/or aliexpress. Thank you.

  4. Can you please cover in your review if it is possible to use OTG and WhatsApp on this

    • I’m going to focus on the reading and writing aspects. Onyx’s devices support OTG but it requires using a powered hub and I have no interest in venturing down that path.

    • You could always try a wireless usb for additional storage or a cloud based one.

  5. I hope that Amazon gets the case in as well. I bought from Good e-reader for ~$510 US but neglected to add a case. I can purchase a case seperatley from them as well, but the shipping is more than the price of the case.

    • You could always use a tablet sleeve or slip cover. I’m using the hard travel case that came with the N96 and it fits well and has a slot for the stylus. The regular covers are nice but they add a lot of extra weight. I’d rather just use it coverless and stick it in a case when I’m not using it. I just got the Note yesterday and it’s a very impressive device. The performance with the upgraded hardware and newer software is light years ahead of Onyx’s older models like the N96. I wasn’t expecting such a big improvement. This thing is awesome! I just wish it had some page buttons…

      • I have the boox note, agree its awesome.
        Need now more 3rd party apps that support the wacom pen 🖋 properly worth no lag just like onyx own in-built app note. It’s light years ahead of the performance of the n96ML which I had. Fortunately I sold my n96ML 2 weeks prior to reciving my boox note. I bort it from ereader. De german online store for €549.78 with free case.


  6. Lovely device, especially for taking notes. If only it was possible to transfer files out of the note.

    A tethered PC can see directories and content copied onto the note but not content created on the note

    • What is the deal with that? I mentioned in my Onyx Note Review that I had a problem with it not showing files on my computer that show up in the onboard file manager. Like you can export handwritten notes to PNG but the notes folder doesn’t even show up on my computer, but it shows up on the device and I can transfer the files wirelessly with Dropbox. Other files created on the note show up, like TXT files and recordings with the mic. I don’t get it.
