The Onyx BOOX Page is an eBook reader with a 7 inch E Ink Carta black and white display featuring 300 pixels per inch. But the rest of the specs read like the kinds of things you’d find from an entry-level tablet rather than an eReader.

It has a Qualcomm octa-core processor, 3GB of LPDDR4X memory, 32GB of eMMC storage, and an operating system based on Android 11. The Onyx BOOX Page is available now for $250.

By Android tablet standards, that’s a bit much for a device with those specs, but Onyx notes that the Page is an upgrade over the company’s older 7 inch eReader, the identically-priced Onyx BOOX Leaf.

The new model has a faster processor, a bigger battery, more RAM, and a newer version of Android. It also weighs a little more.

The Onyx BOOX Page has a 1264 x 1680 pixel display with support for capacitive touch input and a front-light with adjustable color temperature and physical page turn buttons plus a power button.

Ports include a microSD card reader and a USB Type-C port that can be used for charging, data, or audio output (there’s no dedicated headphone jack, but since this is a USB OTG port, it can be used with an optional USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio adapter).

There’s also a built-in speaker and microphone, a G-sensor for automatic screen rotation, and a 2,300 mAh battery. Wireless capabilities include support for dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0. And while the Onyx BOOX Page is first and foremost an eReader, it supports WAV and MP3 audio formats as well as a wide range of eBook and document formats.

You can also install third-party Android apps, although not all Android apps play well with E ink displays.

The eReader measures 156 x 137 x 6mm (6.1″ x 5.4″ x 0.24″) and weighs 195 grams (6.9 ounces).

  1. I would actually love an E-Ink tablet at this size with an EMR stylus. That would work so well as a little sketchbook
