I saw these, Iskariot, but I was just curious about the fancier 'Berry'.
Thank you, though.

Sorry for being so dense, Booxtor, but...
thx, d
PB611 Cover does fit just to PocketBook 611. However, the regular Onyx cover of i62 models is very good too. You will like it

Booxtor, on re-reading your 10/20 post, I realized I had not read it correctly the first time so I am no longer feeling 'dense'.

I just ordered the Firefly (not the Berry cover) and a spare battery. This will be my fourth eInk reader (only one of which I still have) and I usually use the LCD side of my PocketEdge for reading books, so I'm really looking forward to receiving it.

I was wondering tho, should I download a User Guide to supplement the Quick Start Guide? I sort of skimmed the store site but did not see a link for a guide. Possibly there won't be one until it ships?

Sure do thank you for in-depth, prompt, courteous responses & look forward to becoming a member of the Onyx community.

Booxtor,

You posted pictures some time ago proving that M92 has Cool Reader running on it.
Does the same is true with Firefly?
Does Firefly have Cool Reader?
It is important to me to have at least 1 cm margins on each side in landscape orientation on 6" device so Cool Reader ensures that. Otherwise - who knows.


As to this front edge light technology.
I have two concerns about it:

1. Because of the light distributing film layer the contrast is worse compared to the same screen without the light. So when the light is turned off it is worse than the corresponding model without the light.

2. Sooner or later, cracks develop (or scratches are made) in that light distributing layer (judging from multiple reports about Nook ST Lightglow) - and then bright light spots appear in the middle of the screen when the light is on. So the light can no longer be used, but the contrast is still lost because of the presence of that layer.
Could that layer be perhaps removed, peeled off, when so happens

I hope ONYX is much more scratch-resistant than B&N NST LG, isn't it?

I'm hoping someone will be able to answer this...
I've been searching, and the aforementioned problem seems to have occurred mostly with the Nook Glowlight, not the Kobo Glow or the Kindle Paperwhite.
However, somewhere I read that the since the Nook Glowlight has an infrared touchscreen and the Kindle a much sturdier capacitative screen, it might be expected that the Kindle is less subject to those problems. (Kobo Glo has a capacitative screen as well.)

Afaik, Boox i62HD Firefly has an infrared screen just like the Nook... So I really want to know about this before I even consider ordering one...

I believe it too and the lack of early Firefly reviews is holding me back from ordering one. Done my share of early adopter mistakes

That's good news... It means that a IR touch-screen doesn't necessarily makes the light-dispersing film more vulnerable than a capacitive screen...

To be sure, I took a look at the German version of the site, and that says '9/11/2012'. But like you, I was confused first, since I expect a .de-site to use the European date-notation.
(Suggestion for Booxtor: perhaps you could use a notation like 'Nov. 90th 2012' on the English version the site, that way there is no confusion about the date format used.)
