BOOX Product Launch Event October 2023
Hello and welcome to the official launch event of BOOX. We're thrilled to have you with us on this historic day, as we launch our new ePaper products, and announce our latest software features. As a market leader in the ePaper sector, we are constantly grateful of the ideas from our users, and our developers have made many fantastic products and services based on suggestions from our community. We have been working for 15 years to improve the sector, starting in 2008. And every year, we want to push the envelope and make ePaper devices more potent and capable than ever before, giving you a productive, eye strain-free experience.
So today, we can't wait to share the exciting news that you've been waiting for. Let's start with our Note Air products. The Note Air2 Plus, which was released two years ago, fundamentally altered how people view ePaper readers and notebooks.
It offers amazing features that assists users in reading and taking notes, as well as a handwriting feel that is similar to that of paper. Today, the Note Air2 Plus will receive a significant update, expanding on its versatile and eye-friendly user experience. Introducing the Note Air3 C, our first 10.3'' color Note Air product, bringing a new dimension to study, work, and creativity.
The Note Air3 C inherits the popular and time-tested design of the Note Air2 Plus. It has a wide bezel that allows you to hold the device comfortably without touching the screen. The entire rear of the product is made from a single piece of aluminum in a chic new shade.
We are constantly considering how to provide our users with a high-quality, durable ePaper tablet. The fact that plastics are lighter led us to consider them. But in the end, we chose to remain with aluminum because it adds a stunning touch, and, quality, we utilized CNC, computer numerical control, to cut the casing out of a piece of aluminum and milled out the spaces for the different hardware with the utmost precision. The lines on the rear of the gadget, formed by nano molding, boost communication, making it simpler to connect to Bluetooth and wireless networks.
And the signature pattern in bright orange adds just a touch of class. Furthermore, the entire case is oxidized, giving it a stunning black shade with a greenish tint. Let's see how cutting-edge methods produce a magnificent Note Air3 C: A soothing and crystal-clear color ePaper screen is housed in the stylish casing. It features the latest E Ink Kaleido 3 technology with soft and gentle colors and a responsive refresh performance for reading and browsing. These colors allow you to see colorful charts, infographics, and images that a monochrome device cannot display. And there is a noticeable improvement in the resolution.
The resolution of the black-and-white material is 300ppi, which is 24% higher than that of a typical 10.3'' monochrome ePaper tablet. Also, you can see colors at 150ppi, which is 50% more resolution than the Kaleido screen's prior iteration. The glass panel is also 27% thinner, bringing the text closer to your eye and making it simpler to read.
The Note Air3 C has a soothing screen surrounded by thinner borders. In comparison to the Note Air2 Plus, the borders are a millimeter thinner, giving this device a more contemporary look while allowing you to see more of your content. And with an exclusive film on the top of the solid screen module, the Note Air3 C offers a pen-to-paper handwriting feel. When you write on it, it feels exactly like you're writing on a paper notepad, which is incredible. The Note Air3 C not only gets upgraded in the design and screen, but also in its technology.
People love Note Air products because of their thinness and versatility as an eReader and notepad. And today, the Note Air3 C takes a further step in perfecting its reading and note-taking experience. For the first time, the Note Air3 C features our exclusive BSR, BOOX Super Refresh Technology, to create a better refresh experience on its ePaper screen. You can choose from four different refresh modes on the device: HD, Balanced, Fast and Ultrafast. The HD mode enhances the pleasure of turning pages and reading books. It creates a clear image and then removes after images. The Balanced mode is designed for quicker actions like typing and scrolling. This mode provides improved smoothness and stunning image quality.
To improve the scrolling experience, enable Fast mode to make the content flow faster. For even more dynamic content, you have the Ultrafast mode to supercharge every action and make it as smooth as possible. BSR technology and these four refresh modes significantly improve ePaper tablets' usability. When using a conventional ePaper product, you can only turn pages and you may encounter lag or latency even when you're scrolling lightly. But with the Note Air3 C, reading, taking notes, and browsing will be a breeze. And you can have more enjoyment with the colors. In fact, the Note Air3 C employs more advanced
hardware to provide users with more value. It holds an updated 2.4 Gigahertz processor with four high-performance cores and four energy-efficient cores. An E Ink tablet's memory can be greatly increased thanks to the new microSD card slot.
The Note Air3 C supports microSD cards up to 2Terabytes, so you can store loads of content. And the fingerprint sensor increases security and makes it simple to unlock the device with a single tap. The Note Air3 C is a one-of-a-kind ePaper tablet that enhances your tasks with cutting-edge technologies. And using this device means you can relax your eyes, think more clearly, and create more effectively with various tools.
When reading a book, you can highlight, underline, and make handwritten notes in different colors. And with a single tap, you can perform tasks like translation and lookup. You also have various note-taking tools to help you unleash creativity and organize your thoughts. Like using different brushes to visualize ideas, using different templates to plan the day, using free text conversion to recognize your handwritten notes, syncing your notes to the cloud with 10GB of free space, or sharing them with any third-party apps. Also, the Android 12 OS opens up a plethora of new possibilities for this E Ink tablet. You can use apps like Notion and Trello to help you manage your time, work, and studies. And take notes with ease in OneNote, Evernote, and WPS, because they've got optimized performance on our ePaper display. And we're not done yet. We understand there're
users who love to use Note Air3 C to read books hands-free and take notes with ease. So today, we're adding a new protective case for the more powerful Note Air3 C, the versatile magnetic case. It offers three using ways, the 120-degree vertical, 120-degree horizontal, and the 12-degree horizontal. And each style can facilitate your workflow. With its adaptable style, you can read long articles without changing the page width or other layouts. When you want to read more texts in each line, turn the case horizontally. And then flip it over and set it down to enjoy handwriting without straining the spine.
The Note Air3 C also comes with a magnetic stylus, BOOX Pen Plus. The grooved shaft makes gripping the pen more comfortable. And you can jot down your thoughts whenever you want without worrying about running out of battery power. It's the ideal companion for the Note Air3 C. So there you have it: the Note Air3 C,
with the latest color ePaper screen, an attractive industrial design, a solid built structure, a paperlike handwriting feel, BSR technology, an upgraded chip and OS, and a variety of tools for work, study, and creativity. It's made for the creative, the flexible, and the open-minded users, like you. The Note Air3 C will be available on our official website starting today. In past years, our developers made and improved several great products based on our users' needs, including our first ePaper tablet PC Tab Ultra, and its color version Tab Ultra C. These two products have taken ePaper performance to a new level and showed the world just how capable ePaper devices can be. And today, we'll show you another game-changing product in our Tab series: the Tab Ultra C Pro, the best ePaper tablet PC on the market.
The Tab Ultra C Pro delivers pro-level performance for more demanding tasks. It combines the most advanced Kaleido 3 color screen with our BSR technology and the most powerful octa-core chip you'll find in any ePaper product. It's 13% quicker than the Tab Ultra C and it provides over 5 times faster download speed. Once you use the Tab Ultra C Pro, you will realize that a smooth ePaper experience is critical for any productive and focused task. Another important factor that improves the Tab Ultra C Pro's capability is its enhanced memory, which has increased from 4GB RAM to 6GB RAM. Thanks to the upgraded RAM, BSR and a powerful processor, the Tab Ultra C Pro will present a seamless experience even if you open multiple apps at once.
And we're making the app performance even better on Tab Ultra C Pro by running it on Android 12 OS. With the built-in Google Play Store app, you can download all kinds of apps in just a tap. Apps like Microsoft Word, Gmail, Flipboard, and more to inspire you and help you work and study better. On a color ePaper screen, everything seems fantastic and unwinding. The Tab Ultra C Pro also has an improved document scanning function with the LED flash.
When you turn on the flash, you can use the 16-million-pixel camera to easily capture a clear image of your document and instantly recognize the words with the built-in OCR feature. The images can also be shared with friends and colleagues via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This is fantastic for teamwork and idea sharing. With the magnetic keyboard, the Tab Ultra
and Tab Ultra C have changed how people work on an ePaper tablet. And the Tab Ultra C Pro will enhance the experience with a new keyboard that includes a trackpad. For the first time, we've designed a trackpad with multi-touch sensitivity and custom gestures for an ePaper product, and it will greatly increase your usage efficiency. You can easily go back or switch applications by swiping up and down with three fingers, take a screenshot with four fingers, scroll up and scroll down with two fingers, and tap with one finger.
And you can customize all the trackpad gestures in the Settings to find styles that work best for you. In addition to the existing keyboard shortcuts for changing the brightness and volume, there are new shortcuts to help you do more tasks quickly. Here's how they work when pressing the function key: Press zero, to enter the E Ink center to change refresh rate and display colors. Press dash, to make the split screen show up immediately. Press plus, to type an inquiry and search information in Google.
With all the powerful functions and trackpad gestures, you can smoothly navigate in the Tab Ultra C Pro, visit any pages, and adjust the settings without tapping the display. And when you toggle on the Caps lock, you'll even see an indicator light. The magnetic keyboard has also been upgraded to improve connectivity and usability. With the pogo pin connectors moved to panel and strong magnets rearranged on the flat surface, they will attach to the device firmly and avoid possible disconnection. And beyond stable connection, you can bend the back case to create a perfect using angle from 120 degrees to a flat 180 degrees.
And it has been tested to withstand 15 thousand times of bending. You can use it for 20 years if you adjust the case twice a day. Along with the new design, the upgraded rubber cup under each key makes typing more comfortable. It provides tactile feedback to let your fingers know when you press a key and then issues a responsive command to the tablet. And, for an excellent controlling experience, we increased the trackpad space to make it as large as possible while maintaining an aesthetic balance by using the tablet's similar ratio. Whether you're typing or just placing the device and its keyboard on a desk, they're understated but visually appealing.
And, of course, the new magnetic keyboard is made of better materials from the inside out. The edges are stronger, and the surface is more resistant to scuffs and fingerprints. And the typing panel feels softer, giving your skin a smoother contact.
The Tab Ultra C Pro's new magnetic keyboard enhances the setup and brings it one step closer to being an ePaper laptop. In addition to the keyboard cover, the Tab Ultra C Pro is compatible with a three-fold case and the BOOX Pen2 Pro magnetic stylus. The three-fold case supports the device from two angles, making both reading and writing easier. The Pen2 Pro includes an eraser on the bottom. So you can erase the strokes just like you're using a pencil. All of the accessories make the Tab Ultra C Pro more versatile and are able to help with a variety of tasks. Next, let's talk about the Tab Ultra C Pro's latest design upgrades and how we took our users' wishes into consideration.
Similar to the Tab Ultra and Tab Ultra C, the new product's casing is made of aluminum, which acts as a sturdy housing for the hardware and display. Users requested a lighter gadget, so we made the Tab Ultra C Pro 30 grams lighter to make it more convenient for you to carry to the office or use when working outside. The camera has a metal finish that matches the aluminum gloss of the back casing to make the design more cohesive. We also added two volume keys on the side to make sound adjustments easier. The device as a whole is rendered in a
stylish color that will fit in with both your personal and business life without any issues. So that's Tab Ultra C Pro, with the most advanced processor in an ePaper product, BSR technology for a fluid experience, improved memory and lighter weight, Android 12 OS, a superior camera, new aesthetically pleasing design, and a multifunctional magnetic keyboard with a trackpad. It's the only ePaper tablet PC made for professional use and provides more possibilities with its color screen. The Tab Ultra C Pro will be available on our official website in the next two weeks. BOOX devices are powered by BOOX firmware, which enables our users to utilize the flexible tools to do more on an eye-friendly ePaper device.
Over the years, we've added the features that our wide range of users enjoy and also require. Like when students use the split-screen feature to run two apps or read books while taking notes. Or when academics use Article Mode to divide A4-sized or larger pages into sections, zoom in on each one, and read them in any order they prefer. Users can also use BOOXDrop to easily send and receive files from their computer and mobile device. Not to mention the numerous reading and note-taking tools available.
People take advantage of these capabilities to capture original and well-organized notes, sync them to the 10GB free cloud, and easily share their work and ideas with others via email or third-party apps. And of course, none of these functions require a subscription. They are all free. And the most recent features take BOOX devices and their versatility even further, improving handwriting efficiency and introducing new workflow processes.
Let's start from the SmartScribe. When writing in notes, you can now draw a shape in one stroke, pause at the end, and BOOX will perfect the shape for you. And you can use the new Fill Color feature to fill in each shape with different colors. You can also use SmartScribe to easily edit your notes. So you're able to draw straight lines and scratch off text to eliminate them SmartScribe is even better because it can be used on books with our built-in NeoReader.
You can highlight the text by drawing a circle around it, and by drawing a line underneath, it will automatically become an underline. To help you review them effectively, all of the highlights and underlines can be found and sorted in the Annotations. And when you take handwritten notes on the digital documents, you can also perfect the shapes and revise the notes as you would in the built-in Notes app. The SmartScribe seamlessly integrates annotating and reading, making the entire process more distraction-free and productive. It's never been easier to take notes while reading a book. And there will be more additions to both existing and upcoming product lines.
In the latest firmware, you will be able to use smart reading tools in the NeoReader to create a summary of the book, learn more about the author, and do other things to help you better absorb the content. You can also add blank pages in PDFs to write down your thoughts in extra space. The hyperlinks in the notes allow for quick navigation. When you tap the link and move to another note, you can easily return to the previous one by tapping the back button. And long-press the button can even take you to more previous notes.
These are the highlights of BOOX firmware features, which include various methods of multitasking, free essential tools for an effective workflow, and new functions that can help you work smarter and more productively, such as SmartScribe, new AI Read tools, the ability to add blank pages in PDFs, and quick return to notes with hyperlinks. With the latest firmware upgrade, the Note Air3 C, Tab Ultra C Pro, and other BOOX devices will be more capable of helping you work smarter and more effectively. Today, we unveiled a brand-new color E Ink tablet, Note Air3 C, that can serve as your sole eReader and digital notepad, as well as a next-level color ePaper tablet PC, Tab Ultra C Pro, that can deliver the laptop-like experience on an ePaper device. And we demonstrated some incredible BOOX features that users adore, as well as how our exclusive refresh technology, BSR, will change the E Ink world, ushering in a new era of smoothness and productivity. Today is a day to remember. We hope you enjoy the new products and features as much as we
do. And we're grateful to everyone who helped make this event possible. Thank you for joining us, see you next time.
