Boox Tab Ultra: Huge Price Drop (Limited-Time Deal)

This offer has since expired.

Boox has significantly dropped the price of its flagship product, the Boox Tab Ultra to a shade below $500.

When it was first launched at the back end of last year, it cost around $600. Last month’s release of the Tab Ultra C (a colour version of the same tablet) saw the price fall to $560, and it is now available for $499.99.

However, this is a limited-time deal between June 10th 2023 and July 17th 2023.

This is perhaps due to the colour Tab Ultra C originally costing just $40 more than the monochrome Tab Ultra – many users felt that the low $40 upgrade to a colour device with a higher resolution was a no-brainer, and I guess this resulted in a big decrease in sales of the Tab Ultra.

Now that there is a $100 difference between the two e-ink tablets, potential buyers are more likely to seriously consider the black-and-white Tab Ultra, if a colour screen is more of a bonus than a necessity.

The Boox Tab Ultra is in my Top 5 recommended e-ink tablets.

Tab Ultra Prices in other currencies

As well as being available for $499.99 USD, in the UK the price has also fallen to £499.99 GBP.

In European Amazon Stores, it costs €549.99 EUR.

Where to buy the Tab Ultra?

The current discount applies to both the official Boox Store and Amazon.

With Amazon, you get free 30-day returns.

30-day returns are available with the Boox Store, however, it is usually slower and more costly.

However, if you buy from the Boox Store, you get the standard case included in the price and can get the optional keyboard folio for less than you would pay on Amazon.

  1. Quite a specific task but thought if I’m thinking and looking I can’t be the first…

    I make regular notes after each client session. Some of the notes are archived but I have a sheet onto which I transfer any key points that I might need to refer to quickly prior to or during my following sessions.

    Is there a way that I can do this on a Tab Ultra ?

    • Hey Dave, Not quite sure exactly what you mean – most e-ink tablets, including the Tab Ultra, allow you to copy/paste handwriting between pages. This could be used to create a ‘summary’ page at the front of the notebook, perhaps. The Tab Ultra tablets also allow you to ‘tag’ handwriting to highlight them and make them easily findable – Supernote’s star system is also pretty good for flagging important info.

      Hope this helps – if you could provide a little more info about what you’re looking for, I may be able to think of another solution 🙂
