E-ink, Touchscreen, Price around 300$, Font support and Memory

Dear Friends,


I want to buy an e-reader with (1) e-ink technology (2) price until 300$ (3) touchscreen (4) language font support (turkish, arabic, russian, greek, chinese, japanese etc.) and (5) a comparably good memory. I will use it for academic purposes (reading pdf's, underlining and taking notes) and am not interested in any other features.

What device would you recommend me?

Thanks in advance.

BeBook Neo. Also sold as the Onyx Boox 60. Superb device, and does all that you ask.

Why more recommendations? Those are the best.

Yes these devices are good but generally the more options the more flexibility.

Would (1) Cybook Opus and (2) Reeder fit these criteria? What do you think? What would be insufficient of these devices?

You said that you required a touchscreen. The CyBook Opus does not have a touchscreen. I'm afraid I've never heard of the "Reeder" - who makes it?

oh thats the BenQ / Qisda model using SIpix/AUO epaper. It does have WiFi and might be a little cheaper than a comparable model with E-Ink epaper.

Its also quite small in overall dimensions for a 6 inch display

hi again guys. some months ago doing a research i had asked this question and received these recommendations. (onyx boox 60 and pocketbook 302) now i am going to buy one. are these 2 recommendations still valid or is there something new on the market which is better than these ones?
