Onyx Boox Poke2 Colour released

03:05 AM by pdurrant in E-Book General | News

Onyx have finally launched their 6" ereader using the new Kaleido display.

  • 6 inches screen with 4096 colours;
  • Octa-core (2 GHz) processor;
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 32 GB of storage;
  • WiFi
  • 150g

It looks very much like their existing Poke2, except for the screen.

At $299, it seems to be rather more expensive than the PocketBook equivalent.

Internet Archive sued by big publishers

05:42 AM by Arrghus in E-Book General | News

I couldn't see a thread about this. Please merge if I've missed one.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

"Despite the Open Library moniker, IA's actions grossly exceed legitimate library services, do violence to the Copyright Act, and constitute willful digital piracy on an industrial scale," write publishers Hachette, HarperCollins, Wiley, and Penguin Random House in their complaint. The lawsuit was filed in New York federal court on Monday.
