Announcement. Onyx Boox Lomonosov - ten-inch Mikhailo Vasilievich

The Onyx Boox Lomonosov ten-inch e-reader has been added to the assortment of e-books from Onyx.

A couple of large Onyxes in our country alreadyfor sale. But they are too expensive. Onyx Boox Note Air costs ₽47,990 ($ 619), Onyx Boox Note 3 costs ₽54,990 ($ 709). Lomonosov will be cheaper, ₽31,990 ($ 413). But also a little simpler. The screen is a third of an inch smaller, the resolution is slightly lower, and there is no stylus.

The screen is symbolically over ten inches. 10.01 ″. Not colored, just the classic 16 shades of gray. Capacitive sensor, protective glass from Asahi, backlight with color temperature control. The resolution is 1200 × 1600, which gives 200 ppi.

Traditionally, Onyx does not indicate the brand of the chipset.Most likely, here is Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 (2017, about 140 thousand AnTuTu8 points). By the standards of readers, where you do not need to quickly render heavy web pages, where you do not play toys or watch videos, the power is more than sufficient.

There is enough memory too. 3 GB of operational, 32 GB of constant. There seems to be no support for memory cards. But, if anything, you can connect all sorts of external flash drives through the Type-C connector, OTG is supported.

The battery has a capacity of 3150 mAh. For such a device, even taking into account the backlight, this is a lot.

Wi-Fi dual band. There is a Bluetooth module, a microphone and even two speakers. So, with a strong desire, you can listen to something.

Mikhailo Vasilievich is light, only 420 grams.And thin - 7.2 mm. However, this is all without taking into account the cover that comes with the kit and which it would be strange not to use. With the cover, of course, there will be no such vanishingly small subtlety-voicedness.

Like all ink devices likesize, Onyx Boox Lomonosov is primarily aimed not at reading fiction, but at working with documents and studying. PDFs and the like. Which, as practice shows, very often for some reason turn out to be colored. So I wish Onyxes not to postpone the matter and start releasing Onyx Boox Lomonosov Color as soon as possible, since they already have experience in making devices with colored electronic ink.
