My quest for the perfect writing tablet led me to the Onyx Boox Nova Air 2 Plus e-ink tablet. Unlike crowd-favorites, the reMarkable 2 and new Kindle Scribe, the Onyx promises an e-ink Android experience — an unusual combination for such a device. After testing it for about a month, I am both impressed and confused.
Design and first impressions
The Nova Air 2 Plus delivers a lightweight, durable 10.3-inch e-ink screen with an adjustable Moon Light 2 warm light that I use daily. The color temperature-changing light is crucial for the e-ink tablet experience as it makes the device much easier and more comfortable to read, especially during my red-eye flights when I needed to get work done.
