So which one do you think it's suitable for academic reading and some fiction also? The ability to install FBReader and Xournal is a plus. From what I've been following on the forums, Onyx Boox M92 (please note that it's not M90 which is extremely buggy) would be a better choice than PB 912, considering its Pearl screen. Ectaco Jetbook is also out soon, so would that be a better choice than M92?
Hi Catharsis, I have a PB903 and I am very happy with it, but obviously I've voted with my fee, so I am partial. I'd strongly encourage you to have a look at teh very good series of video comparisons by jsbach - there he compares te M92 to the PB903, and considering that the PB912 is a 903 without 3G, that should be a good starting point for you. He also has other stuff here:
