Good idea !

I think, it's the first time that I see this. The comparaison is always done with some paper books. But, to consider an e-reader as a book, is new.

In the Onyx Boox A60 you can select the words only by using the touchscreen (as far as I know).
Onyx Europe can you please answer this question?

Thanks.

About the specifications on www.onyx-book.com, for the M91S (800 Mhz, no touchscreen) in the part "Connectivity" an option is missing :"Download books directly on device".

An error or it's true ?

It's true, because the M91S doesn't have WiFi.

Hello.

I live in Cambodia and I am interested in either the M90 or the M91S.
I currently own a BeBook One and would like to upgrade to a reader with a bigger screen.

The problem is that I am not sure where to buy one.
Do you have any suppliers in Cambodia or Bangkok?

Marco, thanks for your interest. We don't have a supplier in Cambodia and Thailand yet. We ship worldwide, so that won't be a problem.

I'm very excited by this product and hope it will not turn out to be a fail (such as Pocketbook 903, for example). I really like that it has Pearl screen and the simple design. I have a couple of questions about the software. If no review unit is available yet, please don't forget to answer them.
1. Is the operating system some kind of Linux? (If yes, will there be a SDK available and is porting of applications such as FBReader, StarDict or Xournal easy?)
2. Will you have pdf annotations and good pdf support? (please consider that annotation does not mean not taking app, other companies such as Pocketbook fail to understand that)
3. Is zooming using an area selected by stylus possible?
4. Will it have any built-in dictionaries?

Has someone already received a M90 and done a review

Hello,


Onyx has promised that for the early birders they will get their Boox M90 before or on 15 april. So I was wondering if someone on mobileread has already received a Boox M90 and have done a review or put some video's on you tube. I know of one video that compares the M90 with the kindle dx but this did not give much info about the M90. I myself own a kindle dxg and find it lacking in the support for pdf so I was looking for either the Pocket Book 903 or the Boox M90. What interest me is :
- support for pdf , zooming, reflow, margin management and annotations.
- support for other formats mobi, epub ...
- performance of the device (pdf, using the pen for annotation etc ..)
- it seems that a lot of software is installed on this device, how stabile is the software.
- As a developer, is there a sdk available and what is the os (I thought linux)
- other people want to know probably other info about the device, but I'm particullary interested in info from someone who has already hands on experience with the device.

I know I ask for a lot but anyhow thanks a lot in advance

Best greeting

Marc Mertens

Yes the system is operated by Linux. The SDK will be available here.

Yes you can also make annotations on PDF, check this youtube movie.

I don't really know what you mean by that, but you can zoom in 500%.

Nice video. They did not know how the annotation can be exported, I suppose in first instance they are just saved on device (Xournal port would be great). By zooming using stylus I meant if you can select an area with the stylus and zoom in on it (as in iRex DR800). Just to be sure, this comes with Pearl screen, the same as Kindle? And in the movie, I saw dictionary links, so I suppose it would have some dictionaries.
