The selling model is similar to Amazon - you will be able to use content of the seller only. This is why those devices are slightly cheaper than ours. The device price is also offered without additional accessories - they must be purchased separately.
According to the technical, read the same formats that i62HD & Firefly.

However, and in view of his store does not send the Firefly, you have to go looking for other options.

After a long wait since 26/09/12, I made my reservation, I had to cancel for breach of successive Speeds.

While waiting for my Firrefly to arrive, I wonder is it allowed to write to it with stylus too? Or just with finger?

cotton swab is definitely the best solution.

You definitely need a stylus with a tip that is somewhat thicker than the regular stylus. The stylus must be be able to 'disrupt' the infrared rays that form a grid over the screen.

I use a 'Stabilo smart ball', that I bought to use on my smartphone with capacitive screen (but it didn't work with that phone). However, with my Boox i62HD, it foms a perfect combo).

I will buy Stabilo pencil and put cotton swab or two and piece of alu foil in my wallet. Just in case.
Many thanks AneT and Inemi

Can you make handwritten notes with this tool? Or just navigating your ebook reader? Is that "pen" durable? Thanks!

you can use cotton buds as stylus, they are usually used to clean ears and can be bought in pharmacy.
Also common stylus for tablet can be used.

Good question I join

I62DH soft touch seems to me, will be the best choice

That's the choice I already made.
I bought a I62hd soft touch for me and I was thinking giving a Firefly for a Christmas...
now... I'll think I'll give her the Soft touch... and see if I can live without my ebook reader or not...

My Firefly 8GB arrived yesterday. It has 4 GB internal memory and comes with a 4 GB microsd and a 16 GB microsd, but only one microsd slot. Certainly not what i expected when i ordered a "ONYX BOOX i62HD FIREFLY 8GB +16GB MicroSD". While looking for what might have gone wrong i found the text "Flash-Speicher eMMC 8GB (4GB on Board + 4GB microSD)" in the german version of the datasheet, the english text does not have the part in brackets.

So, the "8GB" model seems to be the same as the "4GB" one with just different microsd cards.
