The Onyx BOOX Nova Air2 is a tablet with a 7.8 inch, 1872 x 1404 pixel E Ink Carta black and white display, support for finger and pen input, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 octa-core processor.

In other words, it’s a lot like the Onyx BOOX Tab Ultra that also launched this week… but smaller, cheaper, and lacking a camera. The Onyx BOOX Nova Air2 is available for purchase now from Amazon or the Onyx BOOX shop.

While this model has the same processor and display resolution as the 10.3 inch Onyx BOOX Tab Ultra, it does have less memory and storage. It also has a smaller screen but the same display resolution, which means you get more pixels per inch. You just have to hope that the content you want to read, write, or annotate looks good on a smaller display.

Here’s a rundown of some key specs fore the BOOX Nova Air2 and BOOX Tab Ultra:

Note that the starting price for the BOOX Nova Air2 includes a BOOX Stylus as well as a stylus case and spare pen tips. But you’ll have to pay extra if you want a magnetic case/cover for the BOOX Nova Air2, while a magnetic case ships standard with the BOOX Tab Ultra (and you can pay extra for an optional keyboard case).

  1. Hyread Gaze Note Plus. Boox will probably release one next year if the Nova Air 2 doesn’t sell well.

  2. The same SoC that is in each Meta Quest Touch Pro VR Controller 😀
