New 10" Likebook P10 from Boyue
#1  seby 01-08-2021, 03:02 PM
Just seen it on the good eReader website:
https://goodereader.com/blog/electronic-readers/boyue-p10-is-a-10-3-inch-e-reader-that-costs-279

It's essentially a cheaper version of the Alita (sells for 350$ against 440$). It has lower hardware specs: 2GB RAM vs 4GB Alita, no SD card (but 64GB vs 32GB Alita), lower display resolution (194ppi vs 226ppi), CPU with 4 cores vs 8 cores of Alita.

It might make sense for people that just want a bigger Mars but don't want to pay the price of the Alita. For me the absence of the SD card is a deal breaker, as I have a huge collection of comics (way more than 64GB), but for others might be great.
In any case, it's the cheapest 10" ereader currently in the market, I believe.

As a manga-only e-reader user, this move fills me with joy.
Not gonna lie, when I saw the news yesterday, I started to think about it really seriously but as long as my current devices (I use a 8" e-reader and a 10" tablet, both old but do their job adequately) function, it should be the offer of the century which could force me to upgrade. I'd say I'm 90% there but even a half decent color capability is necessary to replace all my currently used devices with one which can do all at once.
But the direction is great, let's see how the market responds.

Still well over priced. At least they have given up on the note taking function heralded for the Alita which is nowhere near the technologically advanced paper and pencil method I'm sticking with.

Going with a lower ppi than Alita in a new model. Dunno.

Another technology - it looks like glass to me not Mobius.

Very likely. The display used by the P10 is probably the same used in the Xiaomi Moaan Inkpad X - it has the same resolution (1600x1200, 194PPI). According to Good Ereader (which can be wrong, as it often is), the Moaan (which sells for 400$) has a Carta glass screen.

Good e-Reader reviewers are from another planet Seby so I share share your scepticism. However many cores these devices feature they remain sluggish. I remain convinced that the note taking function is poor compared with paper and pencil.

But it is not very easy to make it computer usable.
With Notes devices it happens at the push of a button.

Not sure what's going on with pricing on GoodEreader. The price has been lowered from 350$ to 329$. Also, the html file name of the goodEreader web page is "boyue-p10-is-a-10-3-inch-e-reader-that-costs-279"! Some greedy people there
Hopefully, when the P10 will be available on AliExpress, the price will be even lower...
