Unbiased Onyx Boox Palma Review: The Ultimate Guide | Android Central

Onyx Boox unveils groundbreaking e-ink tablet

Onyx, a company renowned for its top-notch e-ink tablets, has introduced the Boox Palma, a revolutionary device that is getting folks talking. Sized just like a phone, the Palma is the perfect e-reader.

Unlike Kindle, users can get books, apps, and other resources from anywhere with the Google Play Store pre-installed on the device. Not only that, but any Android app can be installed on the Palma, opening up new reading resources. It also has a display that’s good enough to watch videos or play games, and the processor not only delivers remarkable power but also impressive battery life.

Releasing in mid-September at a price of $279.99, the Palma can be purchased at retailers like B&H Photo and the official Boox website. It comes in white and black colorways. Each Palma also comes with a USB-A to USB-C cable, a tool to eject the MicroSD card tray, and a small manual. Plus, each Palma is shipped with a free TPU case, at least at the time of this writing.

One of the standout features of the Palma is its incredibly comfortable feel, being lighter than popular e-readers like the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s also easily portable, and its plastic build ensures durability.

The device is equipped with a Qualcomm Octacore processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, ensuring a robust performance. The real star of the show is the E Ink Carta 1200 display, which offers an ultrafast refresh rate and color temperature-adjustable backlight, making it the most incredible e-ink display.

Powered by Android 11 and with the Google Play Store already installed, users can install any app they want on this pocket-sized e-reader. The device’s battery life is so good that it can last for months, even with continuous use.

With the Boox Palma, Onyx has raised the bar for e-ink tablets, providing a comfortable, durable, and versatile device that is perfect for reading, gaming, and browsing. Whether you’re an avid reader, a casual gamer, or someone who enjoys the versatility offered by Android, the Boox Palma is a game-changer in the world of e-readers.
