Boox Nova

 

Onyx Boox Nova is a device for reading electronic books with the E Ink Mobius screen. Its 7.8in display is comfortable for the eyes.

E Ink Mobius Carta are screens with higher definition and contrast made under the E Ink technology and featuring a plastic underlying layer and less weight. The use of plastic makes such screens less fragile than regular screens with a glass base. Reading on such a screen is as comfortable as on a regular paper page. Power consumption only occurs while screen refresh.
