Onyx Boox Nova Air C: the same great e-reader with a pop of color

Two minute review

The Onyx Boox Nova Air C is an update of the black and white Nova Air we tested last year. While the Nova Air proved to be a capable device, bolstered by the versatility that comes from running Android with Google Play support, the Nova Air C doubles up by providing a very similar experience, but with added flexibility by fitting a color LCD layer over the top of the E Ink display.

There are really only two considerations. First, the Nova Air C is slightly more expensive than the Nova Air. Second, the screen in the newer model is slightly dimmer and grayer due to the light lost to the LCD layer.
