Yeah, seem like PB903 uses the first Vizplex, or at least there was no information about pearl, so the M90 would have the 50% more contrast, but I don't know how M90 seems better when side to side with Kindle DX. (Found a good post on the-ebook-reader blog, might explain the 2 situations)

One thing I like about PB903 is the bluetooth, nice to connect a keyboard, if it's possible ofc, but they say so.

There's even Asus Eee Reader DR900, but I'm a bit skeptical about that one, and it uses Sipix, AKAIK that's inferior to eInk. Can't seem to find much information about it too and it's a bit smaller, only 9" vs 9.7".

From that page all I notice is the M91S has a better black I think. But from those angles could be tricky to compare it without being unfair to any of the readers. I'll wait to see more of the M series, waiting for the promised video

I'm really becoming more inclined to M90, because I've been reading and Pocketbook seems to have some serious problems with CS and support and for the time that it was launched and still has some serious firmware problems.

Well I hope the guys at Onyx really work hard to bring us a nice, professional and stable product

Well I think I'm just a bit hard to please, it took me about 2 months to finally decide to go for the Kindle 3 as my 6" e-reader

FYI, the black is not available yet, per this post dated 6/15/11 from a different thread:

White is available for immediate shipping. Black is available for order as well but it will be a couple weeks until we have them to ship.

Still trying to find out if we will be able to get any M91S with the strong demand elsewhere.

Two corrections. One is the black is available to order but we've just heard we wont have any until August. That correction was just made on the page , effected customers are being notified.

The second is overseas shipping. Shipping is based on destination. Most European countries will be $45. Shipping is via US Post and takes usually 8-10 days.

That $78 fee is for Overseas Express Shipping. The cost is in addition to normal shipping rates and is for those customers who absolutely , positively, must have the device in 3 days. For this service we use UPS.

^^^ How's the shipping on the white ones coming along? I tried sending you a question via your contact us form, but it kicked me back to the index when I hit the submit button.....

This is a video that was done before the last firmware was available.

Sorry for a short delay... I've finished recording and editing at friday afternoon and tried to upload my new video to Youtube. It was a little to big though (900mb in 720HD) and upload to youtube failed finally. Today is family day (I've promised to my wife to stay whole day with children). So I will cut the video in some short parts and upload it tomorrow ...

1st video after the firmware update

Hey there ppl,

Thanks in advance for the video Booxtor . I'll gladly wait for it .

In the end.. what i need is to spare my eyes (and my back) from the hours sitting&reading PDFs EPubs etc.. or reading online, either on wikipedia or doing any other research through a browser.

Eventhough i use a 27" .. (or a 13" laptop) to do so .. I expect I will finally get the paper-feel.. whilst ditching paper and screen frequency rates altogether!

And not to mention the ereader's portability, and finally making the so desired annotations..
Hopefully, one will have no excuse to, not read, anymore..

I'd gladly exchange battery life for stylus responsiveness.
(to a certain degree evidently .. like getting at least 8 to 11 hours .. out of the M90.)
That's why i havent gone for the Asus Ep121 yet.

Has anyone here.. tried a capacitive stylus on a touch-enabled ereader (e-ink)..? I assume light, but serious, sketching (architecture) on an e-ink reader.. is still only in the future..

kudos from Portugal

PS : Hell.. and i thought that i would have to get an Android tablet to have text to speech hehehe |sarcastic| ..

Hello again

Here is my new promised video. On the video I'am comparing the 9,7" devices from Onyx and PocketBook.


Unfortunatelly I've had to split the whole video in two parts.
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNvxXD4NUlc
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYnPo29WQaU



Cheers

Hi Booxtor

Thanks for the video. I have seen that M90 is generally slower than the PB 903. Do you think that this is due to the different RAM memory (128 MB for M90 vs 256 MB for PB 903) or it mostly regards the firmware?

The processor could be a part of the difference in speed. Even though they have the same Mhz they are not from the same manufacturer. Mhz is not everything. But I would guess that the RAM and the firmware is the reasons for the lower speed.

Booxtor do you experience any difference in contrast and picture quality between them?
