    It may also be worth noting that the Go 2 has a microSD card slot. If you need extra storage of data but not necessarily SSD speed, that could save you a few dollars!

    Microsoft offers a Business version of the Go 2 with a 256 GB SSD and LTE, by the way...

  • Surface Go 2

    Microsoft recently released an upgrade to their Surface Go, called the Surface Go 2. The base model still has the Pentium Gold processor, but the biggest news is the availability of a Core M CPU with the 8 GB RAM/128 GB SSD model. The Core M, combined with an improved display and a significantly faster SSD, make the Go 2 better at handling Logos/Verbum

    [quote user="Daniel M"] Hi Mark, I bought one of the first Onyx Boox devices quite a few years ago (T68 if I remember correctly). I liked it, but found it too unstable to work with it in the end, so I sold it after a couple of months. I have been looking at the Nova 2 in recent days, could you tell me a bit more about your experience? Is it a stable

    My experience is very much like yours. For my purposes - using Logos resources, reading eBooks, Instapaper, and similar apps - the Nova works very well. E-Ink is also friendlier to my eyes than LED or AMOLED displays. I would not recommend using an e-Ink device for videos or games. Some videos will work passably well, and some games that are not demanding

    I have recently sold my Nova and purchased the Onyx Boox Nova 2. It runs Android 9.0 (Pie), so it should be future-proof as regards Logos compatibility for quite a while. It is an E-Ink device with a 7.8 inch display, 32 gb of internal storage (no SD card slot), and 3 gb of RAM. I was very pleased with my previous Nova. The Nova 2 builds upon the Nova

    I have the Nova, not the Pro version. The main difference is that the 'plain' Nova does not have a stylus. Play Store is not required to sideload apks. You'll need to enable "Install from Unknown Sources" as you would for any Android tablet. Sideloading works fine. The Nova/Nova Pro excel in contrast/light adjustment. Logos has never looked better on

    If anyone is still following this thread... Onyx has just released the Note 2, and the Max 3, both of which have Android 9.0. One Onyx rep was quoted as saying that an Android 9.0 firmware upgrade would be made available for at least some current Onyx devices. I suspect that we may also see a new Nova with Android 9.0 in the not too distant future.

    That's really interesting, Bill! Onyx had said that the Nova Pro would not have a frontlight. Nice that they changed their mind. And they also said - when the Note first came out - that getting a frontlight on such a device was very difficult. Glad they figured it out! I'm expecting the Note Pro to cost around $600 US. Maybe a bit more, as the current

    [quote user="Chris Lane"] That’s a super helpful thread. Thanks, Mark! I think I might actually be leaning towards he Nova now! [/quote] If you explore further in MobileRead, you will find threads dedicated to each of the two devices. Nova in Onyx Boox, Mars in Android Devices.

    [quote user="Chris Eller"] This has been a fun (and probably costly) form to read. :) It sounds like everyone is leaning towards the Mars over the Nova. A couple of questions, is it possible to highlight books in the Logos app with the Mars? It doesn’t look like it has a stylus that comes with it. Does it work with a stylus? For reference, I’m

    If saving money is crucial to you, then you may want to look at the Poke. Otherwise, I think you'd be much happier with the Mars or the Nova. Larger screen, better performance, more storage. The Mars is a little cheaper than the Nova and has the sd card slot. Big pluses for the Mars. The Nova has no sd card slot, but looks to have more customization
