Review Desk Droider again e-book on Android. Today is Darwin 2 is one of the smallest and most popular in the line of Onyx.
The Editors are already familiar with the manufacturer, as surveyed and other books. For example, Maxwell or Cleopatra .
Let's Start with the appearance of e-books. In the best traditions of the brand, the device is made of quality soft-touch plastic and the screen matte. To turn the headset on the top. Most of the buttons located on the front panel. In the center are the home button on the sides – buttons page turning “forward” and “back”. At the bottom there is a slot for memory expansion and charging – this evolutionary branch remained without mutation.
Now a few words about the skeleton and stuffing. On Board 2-core processor 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, of which there are only 6,16 GB. All of this works from the lithium-ion battery with capacity 1700 mAh. Judging by the feedback from happy owners, that lasts a month, if not misuse of the Internet and lighting. Screen books touch and multi-touch. Responds very quickly, despite the duration of the animation. We were pleased by the gesture Pinch-to-Zoom, which is not nimble, but it works. If 5 times “pinch” the screen to reduce the size of the text, the device will take couple of seconds to understand the problem, but it will be made exactly what was required.
According to tradition, under the screen set the backlight Moon Light. The display is made by technology E-Ink Carta Plus. At 6-inch and the resolution at 1072 1448 pixels, it has a density of 300 pixels. The contrast is also increased, when compared with other books of the line. Now the figure is 14:1. The feelings, evolution has happened, but realize this can only examining the technical documentation or beard Mr. Charles Darwin, whose portrait adorns during hibernation.
Let's look at the supported formats: text: TXT, HTML, RTF, FB2, FB2.zip, MOBI, CHM, PDB, DOC, DOCX, PRC, EPUB, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, PDF, DjVu. If you need more, then you are welcome to Google Play via built-in Wi-Fi module, of course. Otherwise, the filling work without any complaints. Even if you are not experienced with Onyx products, everything will be obvious. The location of the virtual buttons on the screen intuitively clear, the backlight is enabled and configured from any Windows and standard applications. You can change and the frequency of full page refreshes. Even at the highest figures, on the surface leaves little artifacts that will delight the eye of an avid reader. This applies to those who manages to browse through a book or even play games.
I would Like to note that this option is ideal for people who regularly read in the subway and other public transport. The model weighs just 169 grams, perfectly in one hand and she managed. Included, as usual, a good case: hard on the outside and soft on the inside. Sad, as always, the price. 2 before Darwin it was possible to find up to 10 000, today the price crosses over around 14 000 rubles.
P. S. Recommended for acquisition for travelling homo sapiens.
