For those who want to enjoy a good book by the pool or while bathing without fear of damaging their eReader, Amazon introduces the new Kindle Oasis. It’s your first waterproof electronic reader.
Tablets and phones are great for basic activities, but they do not offer the best reading quality. The best option for this purpose are e-Readers, which are specially designed for reading e-books. Thin and compact, they can be used for several days on a single charge, and they have non-reflective screens that do not tire the eyes.
Onyx Boox has several large screen eReaders to offer. If yesterday we knew the Onyx Boox 13 inches, today we have known that also has been renewed the Onyx Boox N96 with interesting hardware and two versions that will make this eReader satisfy many users.
The Onyx Boox N96 and N96ML
Are two versions of the well-known Onyx Boox N96 on which the current Tagus Magno is based. These models will have a Cortex A9 processor at 1 ghz, 512 Mb of ram (in the case of N96) and 1 Gb of ram memory in case of N96ML. Onyx Boox N96 is priced at around $ 320.00. check the price of Onyx Boox N96 here
Both models have 16GB of internal storage and Android 4.0. In both versions there is a slot for microSD cards, audio output, Wifi, bluetooth and a battery of 3.000 mAh. In the case of the Onyx Boox N96 the screen is capacitive and stylus, but has no illumination. In the version of Onyx Boox N96ML, the screen is controlled with stylus and has lighting.
It is an IP68 Waterproof Kobo Aura One ebook reader. Which unlike the Kindle has a larger screen and also has water resistance
The Canadian company Rakuten Kobo Inc. founded in 2009 designed an e-book reader something larger than the existing one as standard in the market. We are talking about the 6-inch screens we have become accustomed to.
It has an internal memory of 8 Gb and 512 Mb of RAM
