Microsoft Teams from the Google Play Store.
When using Teams, I find it works best in the A2 mode. I think when I originally tried it, I was using the regular mode which made it a bit glitchy.

Like other digital product, the latest is the most expensive. When they release new nova3, note3, older version nova2, note2 have dropped price. So it's an option to save more than $70 to get the same size device. They make nova2 and nova3 at the same page so people can make their own choice.

I agree with the price trend. However, I also see that more refurbished or 2nd chance devices hit the webshops. So a 2nd chance device is actually becoming cheaper than they were a few years ago.

I wanted a reasonable free device with a note taking feature. I settled on a 10" Onyx Boox Note Pro device which was priced down to 485€ from 550€ due to the arrival of the Note 2 series and further priced down to 375€ due to 2nd chance.

I bought it from a Onyx importer that is a few miles from where I live in Holland, but I think it is a general trend. People sent devices back more often. So the marketprice for new devices becomes higher just to cope and the need to sell off returned devices grows.

A Dutch ereader brand even went bust because the return rates were 20% instead of the foreseen 15%. I think it was the brand Icarus, IIRC.*

*Nope, they still exist. Maybe it was BeBook or iRex.
Strangely, boox.shop doesn't have refurbished devices.
