E-book readers (E-ink) with text editor and can connect to external USB keyboard?

Hi all,

I am looking for an E-ink E-book reader which have included a simple text editor and can connect to external USB keyboard. I already have a 9.7 inch E-book reader, but I would like to buy one more for taking study notes when I am reading (without using any LCD based PC/ tablet).

Any suggestions? Thanks.

External USB anything is a tough one...

What about the Onyx Boox T68? It is an Android E-ink tablet -- perhaps it supports this.

Onyx T68 for sure. Think of it as an Android Tablet with E-Ink. Haven't tried a text editor on it but I am sure at least one of them from the Google Store will work well.

Does the T68 support USB OTG? I haven't tried it to see. A Bluetooth keyboard would certainly work, though, even if a USB keyboard didn't.

I don't know, but it's a lot more likely than any other e-ink devices.

Harry is correct. I don't know if a usb keyboard will just work. I will see if I have a suitable cable and keyboard and give it a try.
