    Onyx is supposed to release the Nova before the end of the year, but no definite date has been announced. Similar specs to the Likebook Mars, IIRC. Probably a similar price, too. The Dasung looks promising, but I'll pass on the crowdfunding campaign. Show me the actual device, out there and available for purchase, and at a better price... and then we

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Where did you get the Logos/Verbum app for sideloading? I don't really want to go through the PlayStore (even after the software update) as the Google services are probably a bit of a battery drainer. My unit should arrive in the next few days. I'm already looking forward to it. [/quote] I have an Android tablet. I used the

Hence my warning. By tapping the icon that toggles A2 mode on and off, you can do a manual refresh as desired. This ghosting is the only negative thing I can say about

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Having researched and investigated e-ink options for a long time now, I'd say this device is the most promising one ever. It can even play audio. [/quote] I agree.

    Another E-Ink option, less than half the Note's price, for anyone who is interested. See it here . This device does not have Play Store and does have some ghosting issues in some apps. However, Boyue promises that an October update will address both issues.

    The Note is now available on Amazon , for anyone who is interested. And no, I don't get a commission if you buy one! Just pray for me.

    Bill, What I am wondering is to what extent Onyx will support the Note with upgrades. For the older E-Ink devices running 4.x.x, the story was that the hardware could not support an Android version newer than 4.4.2. Now, with upgraded hardware, in theory, Onyx could upgrade the Android version in future firmware upgrades. Whether they will - that's

    Hi, Bill, Yes, my primary uses for Verbum on the Note are: reading, passage guides, and word study guides. The Note handles all three very well. It's easily the best E-Ink device I have yet had in terms of how well it runs Logos. The Atlas is slow, but I wasn't planning to use it on the Note anyway. I showed it as I knew that others might be interested

    Here is a link to a somewhat unprofessional video that I did with my iPhone of me doing a few things with Verbum/Logos on my Onyx Boox Note. The video is in mov format, so you need something that can play QuickTime stuff! It should give you some idea of how Logos/Verbum works on the Note. The video is about 250 mb. https://www.dropbox.com/s/108a76spcl3pqmk

    You can read more about people's experiences in general with the Note here . You'll get all the pros and cons, and then some. If you find the price a bit steep, Onyx should have (as I mentioned earlier) smaller and less expensive readers running Android 6.0 later this year. E-Ink has some limitations, and not every app is optimized to look good or work

    [quote user="Michael Childs"] Mark, As you use you the Logos app on you Onyx Book Note 10.3, please give us reports. I am considering purchasing one myself. How robust is the Logos App on your Book Note? Is there delay in turning pages? How do maps look? How well do searches work? Are links live and do they work? Does it frequently lock up? Do you need

    One more thing you can do with the Onyx Boox Note, or the larger Max 2: you can use Splashtop, or a comparable app, to view your desktop display on the Note. You can run the desktop version of Logos/Verbum on an E-Ink display. There is a slight delay in response, but it is workable.

    7848.NoteMovie.m4v Here I have uploaded a very unprofessional little video of me using Verbum on my Note. It gives you some idea of what it looks like (assuming that the video comes out passably well). The Note does not have a frontlight, by the way. But if you have enough light to read a paper book, you will have enough for the Note!

    Onyx Boox will be introducing some new devices this year, including eReaders with a 6 in. and a 7.8 in. display, all with upgraded hardware and all running Android 6.0. The 6 in. device is called the Poke and the 7.8 the Nova. I don't know about pricing just yet. The Nova should be better for Logos/Verbum than the Poke, I would think. Thanks to my IRS

    Soon the smaller and slightly less expensive Note 2 will be released by Onyx. Not sure of the price, but it will be less than the Max 2. I actually had a post announcing these two some time ago on this thread. (No responses!)
