Bigme Release Android 13 E-Ink Tablet

I was just perusing the Bigme Store and noticed that they have released a new 10.3″ colour e-ink tablet running Android 13.

I’m not sure how long it’s been available (or how late to the party I am!)

The new Bigme InkNoteX Color is presumably a natural successor to the Bigme Inknote Color+ because the specs are very similar. At first glance, the only differences appear to be the operating system (Android 13 rather than Android 12) and an upgraded processor.

Bigme InknoteX Color vs Bigme Inknote Color+

You can check out a comparison of the specs below (I’ve also included the Bigme Inknote Color+ Lite (a cheaper version of the Inknote Color+ with a bit less memory and storage) as well.

It’s available from Amazon and the Bigme Store.

  1. Hey Dan,

    I think I may have seen this at some of the other websites- GoodeReader (A review on the 28th) and Blog.theEbookreader.com (posted April 24) . It sounds like it is supposed to sport heftier specs, but also a heftier price tag. One of the features, if I have the right device in mind, was that they added some AI programming to help speed up the Kaleido 3 screen and make it crispier.

    The notorious GoodeReader claims it is the fastest Eink now (or at least of the Bigme devices, it was not clear to me which), but the videos they chose to test its speed was a slow camera pan of a white vehicle- nothing really test worthy.

    There was some other news dealing with Bigme and some 3rd party company that they are associated with- but I think you may have covered that here recently.

    • Hey Martin,

      Cheers for commenting.

      I think the new Bigme definitely has the best hardware specs. Unfortunately, the software does tend to let it down (at least on devices I’ve seen). The good thing is that they seem to be working hard at improving it, and if they can do that, I think Boox will have some real competition on their hands in the Android E-Ink space. Bigme certainly have the size, scale, and funds to compete.

      And, as we’ve said before, GoodEreader are not the most impartial resource – particularly when it comes to Bigme.
