So, after waiting anxiously throughout the weekend, it arrived yesterday afternoon!

Haven't played too much with it, but I'm totally in love with the screen
This is my first time seeing an e-ink display with my own eyes. After reading dozens of ebooks on pda and smartphone screens, I must say that e-reader display is much, much more comfortable to read on. Although my smartphone still wins in terms of compactness and its ability to read in the dark.

Packaging is OK, but seriously, someone needs to design a better box for this gadget IMO. The design on the box kind of make it feel cheap.

Build quality is very nice. It feels solid and the design is very iPod-y (might be a minus for some people, but I personally don't really care). The white leather case supplied is also very nice and fits the white Boox nicely.

UI is pretty simple and straightforward. I can understand it fine in a pretty short amount of time without consulting the manuals.

Sound quality is very good. Sound is clear, but I need to listen to it with a better headphone to hear whether it has hiss or not. Will update soon.
What boox need is an audiobook player

Wifi works fine. I only tried to open wikipedia though. But it's a nice feature to have.

Battery life. Just fully charged it last night. We'll see how long it will last A friend of mine who also owns Boox, said that it can lasts for more than a week.

Anyone in Jakarta wants to buy Onyx Boox 60, just contact me
If anyone wants to see the device and I have some free time, maybe we can arrange a meet up.

Cheers.
Hi,

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Mike Hu. I am in charge of US Sales for Onyx Boox. I like to spend some time on this forum to really get to know the eReader community since we really want to make Boox as user friendly as possible.

First of all, thank you for the great review. Even though I have heard many praises about the Boox, it still never gets old.

To add, Onyx has been in talk with a company for a follow along audiobook reader. So as you listen to the audiobook, it goes along with the ebook. Hope this creates a little excitement for you guys.

If anyone has any suggestions, we are always open to them, so I give out my email freely, mikehu@onyx-international.com.
