PocketBook Inkpad X 10.3"

Well, it seems it's going to be a new competitor on 10.3 ereaders.

How competitive is the 450$ price tag ?

Exactly. If it's that expensive it's not gonna be interesting. For 300/350 it could be worth it, but 450$...

That being said, on paper it seems like a nice reader for pdf files.

Is this more durable or something compared to other eReaders? I would never risk using that thing on the rocks like that girl in the video ad, if it slips my hand I expect it would shatter.

That being said, I think the advantage over, say, an iPad or any other tablet is the battery life. And of course the eInk screen on such a large device, if people would be willing to trade app flexibility for that.

Looks like the comfy hardware design from Inkpad 2 is never coming back. Very sad

Touch HD 2 was the last Pocketbook with big comfortable keys.

The actual announcement https://pocketbook.ch/en-ch/news/inkpad-x-news

Thumbs up Nice, but expensive for what it is.

"I am concerned about software optimization and limited application."

- "Beautiful equipment", I really like. But I'm worried about optimizing the software that is the most stuttering on dual-core devices like Inkpad 3 and Inkpad 3 Pro for Pocketbooks.
*Despite 1Gb HW and Dual-Core CPUs, I still have a bug to improve overall reactivity. Other competing brands with memory / RAM - 512Mb and 1x SingleCore are much more reactive, so the problem comes from optimizing the OS core.

-Almost at the same price it is possible to buy a much more powerful Likebook Alita -> with OS Android and pencil WACOM, integrated speakers (and micro SD port). IMHO Pocketbook would have to lower the price to at least 399$ to compete with

As far as I know, Likebook has buggy software too. I hope, regarding this device, it would be more responsive because it is managed by Linux and Android is not better option for eink machines.

It depends. Android has the advantage of installing APK application, both for reading and for notes etc where we are not limited to the SW manufacturer and its possible Bugs.

Using Android on E Ink has its advantages and disadvantages, but as an eNote user with Android OS, I do not see the problem and I do not have a problem with Android on eNote.
(In addition, usually on normal Notes under the operating system Android have enough HW)

PS: For example, if Likebook or Onyx BOOX were installed on Linux only and I would be limited to the manufacturer's applications, I would really hesitate to buy.


- I speak only for myself, but my personal preference is:

[For eReader I prefer: Linux]

- For e-book readers I prefer only basic SW, preferably on the Linux operating system. Since eReader reads only books primary, I don't need any extra SW.

[For eNote I prefer: Android]

-In the electronic note, I prefer the type of Android operating system mainly because of the possibility of installing third-party software (APK). Although the integrated SW may be sufficient, it can quickly introduce some shortcomings and may be limited by the manufacturer's development, as its possible minor errors may not always be pleasant

- I don't know how the developer and SDK are, but I think the Android development environment is more accessible and complete, but as I write, I'm not a software developer for eInk devices, just guess

Ok, it's an interesting point of view. I said what I said because I am astonished what Remarkable people have achieved with such limited hardware.

Exactly. It's too expensive for what it offers. But it can be interesting if they sell it at a lower price. 100$ more than the Inkpad 3 would probably be OK. I don't know if their production costs are really higher for such a unit, given that the difference is mostly the bigger screen.

Regarding the custom linux based firware vs Android debate, do Boox/Boyue ereaders feel slower than an Inkpad? (Inkpads feels slower than Kindles from my experience, but it's not a big deal for the use case).
