Onyx has a couple of new products to go along with their Android-powered E Ink ereaders and tablets that come in various sizes.
Now Onyx is getting into the E Ink monitor market with their new Mira series. There’s a 13.3-inch Mira and a 25.3-inch Mira Pro. The Mira is available to order from Onyx’s website for $799; the Mira Pro is listed at $1799 but it’s not available to order yet.
The pricing strategy of these new monitors is a bit puzzling. Onyx’s Max Lumi ereader and tablet sells for $879 and it has the same 13.3-inch screen as the Mira, except it adds a lot more features and it can also be used as a secondary monitor.
Onyx doesn’t say how the Mira is better or if it’s faster or what. It’s kind of a mystery so far. There’s just the video below that barely shows anything and a product page for the Mira Series without a lot of info.
They basically say the Mira Series offers adjustable refresh speeds and customizable refresh modes. There’s a physical scroll wheel and a button to manually refresh the screen to get rid of ghosting, and there’s a frontlight on the regular Mira along with a capacitive touchscreen, but not on the larger Mira Pro model.
There’s also a note about the monitors not working with AMD GPUs currently so that’s kind of a major problem.
Outside of releasing the Nova3 Color and the Nova Air, things have been pretty quiet from Onyx lately (last year they released 8 new ereader models), but now they’re looking to expand into another niche market with these new E Ink monitors.
