Onyx Boox Amundsen Launches in Russia — Android 4.2, Carta,

The 13" Onyx Boox Max may be getting all the attention this month but it’s not Onyx’s only new ereader.

On Wednesday Onyx announced the Amundsen ereader for the Russian market. This device runs Android 4.2 on a dual-core 1GHz CPU with 512MB RAM, and it retails for 7490 rubles (about $106).

It carries a 6" Carta E-ink screen (1024 x 758) with frontlight and touchscreen, and under that screen you’ll find 8GB internal storage (plus a microSD card slot) and Wifi. The 1.7Ah battery boasts a promised month of battery life.

It also has page turn buttons.

In terms of software, the Amundsen supports a broad range of ebook and office formats. There’s no video or audio support, of course, but on the plus side it runs Android so you will be able to install Android apps and add more features.
