Onyx Boox Poke2 Colour released

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

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.

I wonder if the Kaleido display is currently only available in six inch screens? It seems like a 7" or 8" display would be the more viable market for color eInk readers.

It certainly looks like it as there is also an iReader C6 color (~$420) having a 6" screen.

2020 seems to become the year of the color e-ink

Or someone reserved exclusive rights to anything bigger. We shall see if Kobo or Amazon come out with a bigger screen.

I don't see E-Ink giving exclusive rights to anyone. I don't think that would be in their best interest.

They did in the past every time Amazon wanted it. E.g. for the Voyage at 300dpi.

Also, Sony's 7" ereader was an exclusive. And wasn't Amazon's 7" Oasis also an exclusive use of the screen (or did I forget something) ?

I believe the first Pearl screen for the Kindle Touch was also exclusive, but not certain.
