10.3″ Onyx Boox Note Pro Now Available on Amazon

Onyx Boox Note Pro

The Onyx Note Pro has finally turned up for sale at Amazon.

As expected they’re selling it for $599, which is $110 more than they’re currently charging for the original Note.

The Note Pro adds a frontlight with adjustable color temperature, a flush glass screen, and it has double the storage space and RAM with 64GB and 4GB.

Like the original Note, the Pro model has a 10.3″ E Ink screen, and it uses the lighter and more durable flexible Mobius display.

It has a quad-core CPU, WiFi, Bluetooth, and it runs Android 6.0 and is open to install apps. It has both a capacitive touchscreen and a Wacom touchscreen, and it comes with a stylus for writing on the screen.

Onyx has some stiff competition with the very similar 10.3″ Likebook Mimas that also just turned up for sale at Amazon, but it’s a lot cheaper at $489, and it adds a memory card slot and physical page buttons. I’ll be posting reviews for both, along with a comparison review, so stay tuned for a closer look!

  1. Thank you for this information. It’s an interesting device 10,3″ for me. But expensive. And the same 227 ppi.

  2. I agree 100%. Even the old 167 ppi devices have sharper text than your average trade paperback. I haven’t seen a 227 ppi device in person, but I believe it should be more than adequate. The manufactures would do better working on making the black blacker and the white whiter. I also think it would be a good idea for Eink to work on some fonts which are optimized for their displays. I would say they should develop at least one Serif, Sans-serif, and slab serif font which would be licensed to anyone buying an Eink display.

  3. It would be great if you could review and compare these two readers with the eewrite epad when it comes out.

    • The E-Pad looks interesting but I generally don’t review first gen crowdfunded devices because they so often fail. E Ink software development is a lot harder than most people think. Plus they’re crazy if they think people are going to pay the full price of $699 when you can get a Likebook Mimas with the same screen and 90% of the same features for only $489.

  4. In Amazon. Com, they are not showing it now.what does it mean?
    Sold out?

    • It still shows up for me. They do frequently sellout when first offering a new device, though. The Nova Pro has been in and out of stock a lot since they started selling it.

  5. I would really like to see the note pro stacked up against remarkable. I’m curious on writing experience, performance, document formats supported, annotations, screen quality – nighttime va day time vs sunlight. Ability to sync books/PDFs with google drive or box or one drive.

    • Personally I thought the original Note was much better than the Remarkable. It’s really not much of an ereader at all, more of a specialized notepad. The Remarkable is pretty dated at this point. I’m surprised there aren’t whispers of a newer version coming out soon. The Note Pro is a much better value just with the added frontlight alone, not to mention the faster processor, having way more storage space and RAM, and having more advanced software.
