Onyx Boox Nova Air Color with Kaleido Plus is now available



Onyx Boox has just released a brand new color e-reader and digital note-taking device. It is called Nova Air Color and uses the latest generation On-Cell Kaleido Plus electronic paper technology. This device has Google Android 11 and Google Play, so it is possible to download millions of free and paid applications. The Nova Air Color delivers a richer, more usable color experience for reading, writing, and multitasking. By combining the magnetic accessories and warm lights, Nova Air C can improve the flexibility and convenience of use. Powered by the latest firmware, the new device is the right mix of fun and practicality.

The Onyx Boox Nova Air Color features a 7.8-inch E INK Carta HD and E INK Kaleido Plus color filter array. The resolution on the B&W screen is 1404×1872 with 300 PPI and the color resolution is 468×624 with 100 PPI. The screen is flush with the bezel and protected by a flat AG glass lens. There are 36 white and amber LED lights, so there’s a front-lit display AND a color temperature system. Users can adjust color intensity, vibrancy and brightness to achieve desired effects. Bi-color headlights in refreshing white and cozy yellow make the 4,096 colors more comfortable to see in any environment.

Onyx uses a WACOM screen on its tablet. It comes with their seminal note-taking app, which offers over 16 different colors and shades for freehand drawing, taking notes, or just editing PDFs. It comes with their Boox Pen Plus stylus, which has over 4,096 degrees of pressure sensitivity.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 636 Octa Core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. You can connect to the internet using WIFI and it supports wireless headphones or an external speaker for audiobooks, music, podcasts and more, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. If you don’t feel like using headphones, there are two stereo speakers, which sound amazing. There’s a USB-C port, useful for charging the eReader on your PC or MAC, or even on a wall charger. It is powered by a 2000mAh battery, which should be enough for a few weeks of regular use. The dimensions are 194×136.5×6.3 mm and weighs 235g.

One of the best reasons to invest in the Onyx Boox brand is Android. All models tend to use the latest generation operating system, which means there are a ton of additional security benefits. Google Play can be installed when first set up, which makes it extremely appealing to users who want to install apps and keep them updated. Onyx also regularly releases firmware updates, which resolve bugs and introduce new features and improvements.

What are the main differences between this model and the Nova 3 Color? The Nova Air Color offers 30% more contrast and 15% more saturation with the headlights on. Even with the lights off, it’s 6% and 14% better than Nova3 Color in contrast and saturation respectively. It also has a color temperature system, which the Nova 3 Color lacked. A higher version of Android 11, compared to Android 10, is also essential, as it will support all the latest generation applications.

You can buy the Onyx Boox Nova Air Color from the Good e-Reader store for $419.99 and it comes with a free case.
