Same here.
I wonder when the next firmware upgrade will be released.

It will take some weeks. Currently we got stuck by porting Android to current hardware. It is really a hard nut becaues of lack of hardware unit for graphics acceleration. Current results are not fully satisfactory. We are thinking about to make this project open source.

Today I could convince our dev team to postpone this porting and to make some long ago promised and long expected features first:

1. fix some important bugs and issues
2. implement cloud services (which was almost finished but also postponed)
3. Implement multitasking
4. redesign UI
5. improve browser
6. update/replace reading apps.
(Task list is quite long)

As soon as it's finished, they can return to Android porting.

Booxtor, you are awesome. It would be really great to have a new firmware with all fixes and long awaited features first, and then we can wait for Android...

Thanks Booxtor for this good news.

Read my post : http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...42#post2400442 . If want to hope some evolutions of the firmware, you must be able to live of your business.

I want a better device, for this a support is needed and for the firmware it's you.

It is good decision, I guess. It is better to have one thing working 100% than two working 98%. Namely if those 2% may be important for some people.

I agree with this decision.

Please let me draw your attention to this that looks like a bug:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=204084

Do you think that the two following are usefull (and easy to implement) features?

1. a shortcut to quickly recall bookmarks while reading

2. when in the file list, a voice in the main menu which allows to edit saved properties of the file (bookmarks, page to go when opening, fonts and/or whatever else can be relevant)

1. All those requests would be solved by user definable toolbar or dynamical (self learning toolbar with possibility to switch on/off the learning). Different people need different features at hand.

2. Good idea! And maybe add the possibility to choose the reader app for given file. Also would be great to have separate set of settings (zoom level, cropp, ....) for files when viewed landscape and portrait. It would help a lot, I think.

It would be also good to have a look on look of icons (there was a common conception, but as features were added some icons do different tasks than one would expect) and logical placement of icons. (I would make easier to use Onyx for a new user). Also many icons on toolbar of Pdf Reader are very bad visible (black on gray - they need at least white outlines). And icon on toolbar that is switched on should be well visible, now it is sort of gray. Maybe white frame arounr the button would do the job better.

I know there are more important things, but easy to comprehend interface is also important.

That's very good news, especially about the Cloud services. Thanks, Booxtor!

Also, I would like to draw attention to the old problem, with invisible horizontal/vertical lines when merging scribbles to pdf!

Thanks.
In 4 I suggest bigger UI elements for i62 as current ones are too small
In 6 I would be happy if Coolreader and Fbreader are updated too and not only Pdfreader

Thanks for the clarifications Booxtor.
Are there any chances they would consider a bigger screen for the Onyx devices? I am thinking about something that would really fit the size of an A4/Letter format which would probably have a lot of demand if it is coupled with a pressure sensitive Wacom pen.

Have they ever considered this?
I wonder why nobody goes above this 10" size.
In my opinion it is about the time that the cost for the now classic 10" e-ink ereder go down as the vendors have recaptured their costs with the development of this technology. It should also be about the time for new screen sizes to reach the market. I know that this ids possible. E-ink was saying that the size is not a problem for them

Yeah, I would gladly trade my M92 for a reader with 12'' or 13'' screen.
