The minimum requirements to run Gingerbread are: 1 Ghz processor and 512 MB ​​RAM.

But something more is always better.

A greeting.

Thanks for the new info regarding onyx devices, booxtor. I eagerly await for your review.
Actually, there is an e-ink device running Android 2.3 and is priced at 150 EUR.

Hey! I got an interesting answer about this device ... I asked about confirmation and more details.

Hi Jotas,

Please explain to me more clearly which application you want to install on your e-book with Android.

Usually it is no problem to download third party applications from Google play on this E-book with 6 inch and Android support.

-- Best Regards,
Krum Kostov
Product Manager
Digital World Ltd.

EDIT: OK, I think I got the original supplier (actual product, running Android 4.0.4), and since this is totally off-topic in this forum, I stop writing about ... details here ).

It's not my ideal device, but it's got way better processing power and RAM than a lot of the devices out there. I didn't see any followup posts in the non-Onyx forums, so if you're going to follow up with more info (more models, pricing, group buys), can you start a thread there and link to it?

Android would come very handy to me, as I would like to have my Mendeley references library on my e-reader and there are several Android ports of the Meneley bibliographic software. I will wait and see however what Booxtor will do with the Android port on M92, because the big screen of M92 is clearly an advantage.

Well, there is not too much to say (unless you want to order 1,000-10,000 pcs and start your own business and brand name). Also I got no more replies or information from the .bg retailer.

And even actual product lacks HD screen, frontlight or page turn keys (probably they will build if you pay extra for it).

But it's great to find such products already produced, maybe some of us are not alone requesting such devices. Maybe such fine and logical thinking really exists. And finally be able to use and choose among a lot of different, quality and real programs, or even program or modify one by yourself. And obviously be free for any book format, store and service.

Actually the Chinese vendor description says
Quote:
Minimum Order Quantity: 1 Piece/Pieces
so you don't have to order wholesale.

But for me there is a lot of uncertainty buying online from China from unknown vendors (esp. when the payment method is Western Union and not PayPal). If I decide to buy one, I will probably go for the model rebranded for Bulgaria, despite the older specifications and the higher price, because I can go to a store and buy it there.

One single unit using Alibaba or directly to chinese, any payment method... doubtful and dangerous.

But, if you go ahead, please let us know the results! You're even from Bulgaria, so it must be a lot easier for you

Yes, if I get one eventually, I will write about it.

But right now I am waiting for Booxtor's implementation of Android on M92.

Well, I contacted the company in China and ordered one yesterday. The representative Kerry Wang answers emails quickly and seems helpful enough. I will let you guys know how it turns out.

Fingers crossed, ha ha!

Me too , but 83USD/pc + 45 freight is a lot!, and payment not safe.

But, interesting, he told me that they don't have where to buy in Europe, distributor or retailer, so, the device from the .bg store must be (probably! ) from someone else.


EDIT: Look. Maybe this one. They also offer another using flexible display.

I also have contacted the company and even ordered a sample to be able to compare their Android 4 with Onyx Android implementation
I hope this is not a con company, since they positioning themselves as traders and not as manufacturer..

They a also answered some of my questions about advanced requirements:

Questions are following:

1. is it possible to equip this device with glow light technology (for frontlight functionality)?

No.

2. is it possible to equip this device with additional flash storage (i.e 8GB)

This is OK, but MOQ 1000pcs.

3. Is it possible to equip your device with EINK Pearl screens with bigger resolution (1024x758)
No
