M92 black vs. M92 "black pearl edition"

Hi there,

Is there a difference? Just got my black M92 in the mail yesterday and stumbled upon this M92 "black pearl edition" thing when looking at the firmware updates on the Onyx web site. What is all this about?

My understanding is that all M92 models have the e-Ink Pearl display, right?

Have done a bit of a search but was not able to find out.

Cheers,
Joerg

Hi,

Devices are actually of same hardware.
The difference is the scope of delivery - M92 "black pearl edition" from polish Arta Tech (also calling themselves Onyx Europe) will be delivered without cover and wall charger adapter. They sell the accessories separately for approx 50 EUR (19,9 EUR adapter and 29 EUR Cover)
It has also a licensed feature (TTS Ivona), which makes it impossible to update devices sold by that company with our free software and their firmware version can not be installed to regular M92.

Don't try to install software from Arta Tech to your M92 - it will not work.

Booxtor is right - the firmware is not compatible.
You can not update M92 "Black Pearl" with Booxtors FREE firmware, but you can update it with FREE firmware from onyx-boox.com.
Additionaly to Ivona TTS you will be able to synchronise your M92 "Black Pearl" Edition with Google Drive cloud storage and will have a choice if you wish to see metadata for files (title, etc.) or file names (best if you like to work on documents printed to PDF from MsOffice or so).
If you wish you can choose a cover you wish (also genuine leather one) and still the price will be interesting :-)
Regards from Onyx Europe

You could make the same thing with the "black" version.

Under FREE we mean that we don't have any locking or blocking mechanisms in our software. You can install it regardless where you purchased your device (except of devices sold in your store of course, since you are blocking it)

The software is not locked in our devices. You can still install the applications (software) you create or community creates. What is locked is the firmware updates. It does not update on the devices which are sold through other distribution channels due to licences. And you can not install different firmware on those devices. That shall be clearly said.

Thanks for update, I though that the Onyx is the one single company, and now I see that different companies doing their stuff on the device.
