I see some of the earlier specs say "Pearl" screen". Since this is an LG 1024x768 screen, is it still "Pearl"?

The new A62 sample (arriving next week) will have the LG flexible plastic e-ink installed. More information on the screen can be found here: http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/29/l...isplay-launch/

MikeOnyx,

Here' what I want in it:

1. wide margins (in landscape mode at least 1 cm on each side needed - the width of text should be about 9 cm as in a regular printed paperback, not 11 cm)
A real deal breaker. Even though it could be fixed later with a firmware update, such a firmware update may never come.

2. Easy to read fonts, such as Amasis on T1.
Best - if additional fonts could be installed by the user.
Also a deal breaker - what is the point if a reader has only unacceptable to me fonts and there is no way to add your own?

3. it should be strong and rugged and should not need a protective cover.
Now that the screen is flexible, the rest should be just as impossible to damage.

4. Because the screen is plastic, I want the device itself to be not black, not white, not gray, but of matching color, EXACTLY as much as possible the same color as the screen and equally opaque. Of course, the plastic screen probably still looks sort-of like glass, or like laminated paper, but even for readers with glass screens the color ought to be matching the color of the screen as close as possible.

5. SD (or micro SD) card support - I always use 32 GB cards - a deal breaker (almost).

6. multi format support, best would be CR3 running on it. Also would solve margins.
I also need internal or external file manager supporting nested folders and the list (stack) of last opened books of unlimited length.

7. good and easy to use dictionaries?
A good interface is important, the dictionaries themselves could be added as needed.



I like Wexler's weight and ruggedness, but it does not meet my other requirements, unfortunately.
If it turns out that it supports wide enough margins and allows to install fonts, I might go with Wexler even without an SD card. It's weight is only 1/2 of a typical 6" reader with a protective cover. And you can just drop it casually anywhere, or fall asleep while reading -no problem, you will find it on the floor.

I am a bit worried that the new Onyx may be much heavier and, even though the screen is plastic, the case itself may not be strong enough and could break if dropped to the floor.
It would be absurd if it needs a protective cover thus increasing its weight further.


I think that all my requirements are very reasonable. They are minimal requirements for comfortable reading. And I think that even without my feedback they should be pretty obvious to e-reader designers.

Thank you.
To be clear: i62 and A62 Are different models, right?

When is the a62 coming? The rest of the 6" models may as well not exist in comparison.

The Onyx reseller in Russia reports today that Onyx International will delay the release of the reader with plastic screen. The quality of the LG screens turns out not to be good enough. 20% of the screens have what they call a serious defect: tpp much ghosting.

Onyx now will wait until PVI has plastic screens available. They expect that will be mid-summer.

Also, because of numerous requests from users, they will use the body of the i62 series instead of the A60 series.

I hope other reader makers will make new models with the PVI plastic screens and I also hope these will be high resolution as well maybe even better contrast.
