New 10.3″ Likebook Alita Getting Released Soon (Videos)


Likebook Alita

Likebook is getting set to release a new 10.3-inch Android-powered ebook reader and digital notepad called the Likebook Alita.

The design looks strikingly similar to the Onyx Boox Note Pro. Their shameless copying of Onyx is starting to get kind of creepy. Half their software features were taken from Onyx’s software and now their hardware is a near replica too.

They released the Likebook Note for about a month last year and then decided to move onto the Likebook Mimas, and now a couple months later they’re already coming out with yet another 10.3-inch model with the Likebook Alita?

What’s the deal with releasing three separate 10.3-inch models in less than one year?

Frankly Likebook needs to get their software problems fixed before releasing yet another model.

Nevertheless, the Likebook Alita looks like it could be a nice device if they get the numerous software problems that afflict the Likebook Mimas worked out.

It’s basically an upgraded version of the Mimas with a flush glass screen and double the storage space and RAM with 32GB and 4GB.

Like the Mimas, it has a 10.3-inch E Ink screen with 227 ppi and it has a frontlight with adjustable color temperature. It has a Wacom touchscreen, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot for cards up to 128 GB, an octo-core CPU, and a USB-C port.

After being thoroughly annoyed by the Likebook Mimas’s software, and having just reviewed the Likebook Muses the month before, there’s no way I’m going to review the Likebook Alita, so here are a few YouTube videos showing the Likebook Alita in action for those interested (personally I’d recommend the Onyx Note Pro over it because the software is better but it’s good to have choices and the Alita does add a memory card slot).

  1. Thank you for this information. Alita hace good specs. A low Price than Onix note book pro. If you recommend it’s important.

  2. When is it coming out

  3. If it’s the same crapy software as the Mimas one, this doesn’t worth the money. Better use the original tablet (the Onyx Boox Pro) rather than the awful copy from Likebook. Very disappointed by the software updates on the Mimas, I’m so much regretting my purchase.

  4. Likebook has not yet managed to fix the BUGs on the Likebook@MIMAS, and will release the new NOTE@ALITA?

  5. I’m confused by this software review of boyue devices.
    There’s much dislike for likebook software on this website, including in the comments.
    Though the guys at goodereader give the alita a stellar review, because of customization options in the reader app, and excellent handwriting recognition. I was surprised by how positive.
    So does the alita infact have new software? Do help me out.

    • The reason they give such positive reviews is because they sell Likebooks from their store. Never trust reviewers that sell the products they review. I’m surprised more people don’t notice the conflict of interest.

      • I get your point, but they also sell e-readers from different brands. Not only Likebook, but also others incl. Onyx. Could it even than be classified as a “conflict of interest”? I genuinely would like to know your opinion on this.

        • I just don’t see how anyone can take a review seriously when the reviewer sells the products they’re reviewing, and they likely make more selling Likebooks so they’re going to be more likely to overlook any faults. If you pay close attention it’s clear they barely even use the devices before posting a “review”. Sometimes they’ll post a review the same day as posting the unboxing video. To them it’s just a business to make as much money as possible. I honestly doubt that they even read ebooks on a regular basis.

  6. Well I already got the Alita. The device is fine, however the software lacks a lot of features. There isn’t even highlighting option in pdf reading app! It’s really annoying. Hardware is wonderful though. It powers the device really well and UI is fluid. My wife find it pretty awful though, since she uses reMarkable and finds the Alita UI terribly messy. Also the home button (which is not physical, but gives haptic feedback) can accidentally touched as she was writing. I’m gonna try Onyx Boox (maybe Nova Pro or Note pro) to see the difference. I need Android based one to use Scribd, Pocket etc.

    • I just received a Nova Pro and am very impressed with it. The ability to balance the front light is amazing. I only wish it would let you write on ePubs like my reMarkable. I’ve tried all the reader apps and still go back to the default reader as it is really good. If the Note Pro could write on ePub’s I’d buy it in a second to replace my reMarkable.

  7. Which is best for reading all my PDFs in Evernote?

    • I don’t read PDFs in Evernote so I couldn’t tell you. The Onyx Note can sync with Evernote but you’re much better off using the default app to read PDFs.
