Onyx MIDIA InkPhone: the e-ink cellphone of 2014?

Watch out smartphones, we have a different gadget coming up on the radar.

Check out the prototype of the MIDIA InkPhone, an e-reader that is also a phone. This InkPhone is only E ink display, which means no LCD! The display is 4.3-inches and front-lit – just like similar e-readers on the market.



Onyx, a hugely popular Chinese e-reader company, designed this phone with a long battery life in mind.




They promise that their InkPhone will last for more than two weeks on a single charge of its 1,800mAh battery! Of course, this is not a smartphone with apps and crazy specs. If you’re in the market for a slick phone, without the frills, consider checking out the Onyx MIDIA InkPhone.

The phone specs include a low-end CPU, a currently unspecified amount of RAM, no camera, microSD card slot for 32GB, and only 4GB of on-board storage.

MIDIA InkPhone should arrive on store shelves in Germany and Poland at some point in April. It’ll be priced at about $195 and will be available via Amazon if you’re looking to get in on the e-ink action.
