M92 can read file docx, xls, ppt.... ?

I am looking around and check if there is one large screen device which can read file types such as .docx, .xls, .ppt, .prc, .lit.
I intended to go for JBC but it seems not perfect and I really do not like color for such price. Another solution was hanvon E920 with very high resolution B&W screen but it is hard to get one, I turn to m92. Anyway, as I see specifications are messing from site to site, M92 owners please help to confirm me if it can read such above files?
Thanks alot.

It can read office documents. It uses Picsel File Viewer which is used on some mobile phones. However all the fonts I get are in italics and very complex spreadsheets are not displayed.

In principle it is supposed to work with Office files. But I tried (rather uncomplicated) docx files once or twice and it failed to display them at all - blank screen appeared. So your mileage may vary.

I personally don't use office (yet), but you may want to report this to Booxtor and/or Onyx (best along with an example document), so they can have a look at it.

Cheers!

They don't seem to be very eager to fix what has already been reported. Since Office files are of tertiary importance, and Onyx uses external software to support this, I'll rather wait until any progress is made on long list of hitherto bugs (I'm still waiting for my question mark in Polish keyboard - fixing this should not take more than ten seconds...).

I am personally impressed by M92 so far. I may buy an M92.
Good day!
