But that is a Onyx Firefly review. Not a Tagus Lux review.

El eReader Tagus Lux es compatible con formatos de contenidos incluidos PDF&EPUB DRM, TXT, HTML, CHM, PDB, MOBIPOCKET, FB2, DJVU, PDF, EPUB, WORD, PPT, EXCEL (2007&2003), MP3, RTF, ZIP & RAR etc."

No translation needed. It supports PDF & EPUB protected with DRM... AND PDF & EPUB... the latter being any PDF and any EPUB.

...so, this comment by Booxtor on the Tagus Lux is just not true:

"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 both may be truth at the same time. Being compatible does not necesarily mean that one will be able to read the contents from different source than the "desired".

Also the firmware update may be locked only to be able to use dedicated versions of firmware for this brand.

I have no information that supports the above, I just say that the above is technically possible. It does not imply, that it will happen.
So posibly there will not be any problem to install general Boox firmware and read documents from any source.

Oh, I see. I was reading the TagusLux as a renamed version of the Firefly. Sorry. Thanks.

I'm noticing the Tagus doesn't have buttons, just the touchscreen. There's a discussion going on here in spanish

Hi,
does anyone know which dictionary comes with the firefly ? My version has a chinese (I think) name and the definitions are interspersed with chinese (I think) words, making it pretty unpleasant to use.

Ok. Thanks.

Is there any way, other than running the OTFM program, to view and possibly edit (for example remove that unwanted dictionary) the content of the system files in the firefly. It seems strange for an open system, that we shouldn't be able to visualize it easily.

Also, when I add a certain amount of fonts, I can't seem to be able to access them all. 25 are visible, but that seems to be it. One can't scroll or move to another page where the remaining the fonts would be visible.
