While I love my tablets, I really don’t like reading on them for any length of time. I had been looking for an e-ink e-reader that runs Android, has the Google Play Store and is capable of running the Scribd app. I had seen a few that looked interesting but weren’t quite what I wanted. When I found the Onyx BOOX AfterGlow 2 at Amazon for $129, I decided to take the plunge and get one. The Afterglow 2 has a frontlight, runs Android 4.2 and comes with the Google Play Store installed on the device. It can read multiple file types, including ePubs, Mobi, and PDF files. It has physical page turn buttons and is even capable of text-to-speech (currently the languages are English and Polish).
Right now, I am keeping it in a JAVOedge Universal eReader Book cover that actually fits pretty nicely. (This is the cover that didn’t fit the Fire HD 6 I bought a few months back.) I will be doing a full review after I have played with it for a bit, but, in the meantime, here are a few pictures:
Stay tuned for the review!
