I wonder if itÂ’s only in China. What are the specs on this device? Why does it look like version 2 in both cases?

The Onyx Note 3 will in all likelihood be sold outside China as they went through the hassle of FCC approval, and it's listed for sale at 519.99 USD on Goodereader, as an upcoming device.

I just saw the Nova 3 spec from a delete blog post by Goodereader.

It is good to see they put the built in speaker in Nova 3.

The improvement is so minimal, they could have called it nova 2 pro. Same size and weight, disappointing

265g is too heavy for me to have any desire to upgrade from a 6" reader for my 'main' eReader.

Better processor, better memory, better OS, better BT, speaker included and more audio support with zero weight penalty. Seems if one is cup half full rather than cup half empty it's a pretty good upgrade.

Better processor, better memory don't matter as much as you think, since the main limitation is refresh speed of the screen. I wouldn't say android 10 is better, unless people get the devices and are satisfied. Build in audio is pretty cool though.

If I didn't already own a Note Pro and a Nova Pro, I might be tempted. However, even if the newer software features never make it to the Pro models, I don't see any feature significant enough to want to make me part with more money, particularly in the current economy.

Now, if they were to come out with a colour version of either model, that might just sway me...

.58 pounds is too heavy?

The average mass market paperback weighs .75 pounds.
