    I was reminiscing about my previous e-ink tablets/ereaders and came across an old 2010 pic of my collection at that time.

    Clockwise from top-left: Kindle 2, iRex DR800SG (8.1”), Cybook Gen3 (my first), and the enTourage eDGe. The iRex & eDGe came with an EMR pen, the latter with silo. The iRex was my favorite but, like all but the Kindle, you could only sideload ebooks and PDFs. I went all-in with Kindle, devices and apps, going forward after several ebook stores suddenly shut down and I lost access to many ebooks (a handful transferred to Barnes & Noble).

    I had that old Kindle 2 too. Actually I bought the first Kindle but Amazon released the 2 just a week after receiving mine. I contacted them and asked if I could switch despite being in Sweden. No problem, had a new one within a week and returned the old one. Kind of make you a loyal customer.

    The Nova 3 looks tempting. Da** you all.

    Random observation: before I was in the camp "what's the point of making the device so thin if it's going to heavier than the thicker Note Pro 3". Today I noticed that the very low profile and smooth sides make it quite nice to write on while it's laying flat on a desk. No annoying sharp edge digging in your hand and messing with your writing motion.

    For those still considering buying the Note Air, Techradar posted a nice review of the Note Air. No surprises here, just a nice write-up. Just don't click buy until after the March 6 Boox announcement of their likely 7.8" color e-ink reader.

    Hi to all, I have been a very happy owner of a Boox Note Air for a few weeks, also thanks to your advices...at the time of purchase I had found a paper feeling film created specifically for the Boox Note Air but, unfortunately, I can no longer find the link. I seem to remember it was produced by Doodroo but I'm probably wrong since there is no trace of it on their website. Do anyone know a pre-cut paper feeling film for the Boox Note Air who wants to recommend me?

    I don't know the answer, but while you look for it experiment with different pens if you can. As I posted earlier, I love the feel of an old Wacom pen that I still had, even without any screen protector on that Air.

    You could also ask this question on Reddit, there's a reasonably active Boox community.

    Agree...Boox Air pen was abandoned from the first day that I’ve received the Lamy EMR+felt tips...

    And...Yup!
    Reddit made the trick!

    Already on the way!
    Thanks a lot!!!
