Onyx Boox Max 2 is the world's first e-reader that can serve as a monitor

If you prefer an ordinary electronic book with a large touch screen and the ability to draw on it with a stylus, then the Onyx Boox Max 2 Professional device should interest you. The reader is equipped with a 13.3-inch E-ink display (2200 x 1650 and 16 shades of gray) and a Wacom digitizer that allows you to draw sketches or mark up documents. The Onyx also has an HDMI interface, which can be used to turn it into an additional monitor for a workstation.

According to representatives of the manufacturer, the dual mode function (e-book - monitor) has no analogues in the world. In addition, the reader has a built-in microphone and headphone jack, a quad-core processor with a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of permanent memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Boox Max 2 Professional is equipped with Android 6.0 OS and is compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS and Linux.

The device is powered by a 4100 mAh battery which lasts for 4 weeks in standby mode. There are also 4 physical navigation buttons in case the user doesn't want to use the touchscreen. The reader supports PDF, EPUB, TXT, MOBI and DOC formats; graphic formats JPG, PNG and BMP and audio files MP3 and WAV.

The Onyx Boox Max 2 Professional will go on sale later this month for $ 790.
