Bouye Likebook Note sets lower price level for 10-inch ereaders

2018-08-21

Six inches has been the standard size for e-reader devices for years, but fortunately, the situation is changing. A number of e-readers with 10-inch screen have been introduced to the markets. It means ebook users can enjoy some tablet-like features, like writing and drawing on their devices. The Bouye Likebook Note ereader comes with a 10.3-inch screen, stylus, and with a price tag that makes it very competitive.

Bouye may not be a familiar brand for many people, but the Chinese company has produced a few ereader devices before the Likebook Note. In essence, it is an ereader with large, very sharp E ink screen that lets you write on it. Since the device is running on Android operating system, and some early customers are saying that Google Play is factory-installed, it is possible to install additional applications from the Play Store to the Likebook Note.

The possibility to install apps from the Play Store makes the ereader similar in functionality to a tablet, although it is worth reminding that all Android apps will not run on an ereader.
