Onyx Boox Tab Mini C: The Feature-Rich Compact Color E-Reader With a Price to Match
Exploring the Pros and Cons of the Onyx Boox Tab Mini C for Reading and Note-Taking
The Onyx Boox Tab Mini C has officially entered the competitive arena of color e-readers, adding another vibrant option to Chinese manufacturer Onyx’s extensive lineup. Notably, this device doubles as a note-taking tablet and is essentially a scaled-down version of the Onyx Boox Tab Ultra C, albeit without the rear camera for document scanning.
The decision to downsize from a 10.3-inch color E Ink screen to a more compact 7.8-inch display seems judicious. The Tab Mini C retains nearly all the features of its larger counterpart, with the notable omission of the rear camera – a feature I found superfluous on the larger tablet and don’t miss here at all.
Onyx has embraced the latest E Ink Kaleido 3 screen technology for the Tab Mini C, offering a mixed palette of color hues. While some colors appear vivid, others may seem muted. The quest for an E Ink display that delivers ideal color saturation, such as the Gallery 3 screen, remains ongoing, though mainstream availability remains uncertain.
