Onyx Boox 60 S

The new Onyx Boox 60 S has been launched for sale, by Ebookreader Discounter. It is similar to the Boox 60, but without wifi and touch. So the price is much lower!

It does have a wacom screen, it only doesn't have Wifi...

Looks like a nice one!

Yes indeed! My mistake, the only difference is the Wifi, which saves you almost 100 euro !

US retail is 349 USD with wifi and wacom which is roughly about 242 Euros. The US online store is at www.OnyxBoox.com. Shipping in the US is 12.99 USD, international shipping is 34.99 USD.

However I believe Dulin's Books is offering $30 discount at www.Dulinsbooks.com with a certain code. Anyone help with that code? Also, not sure if he does international shipping.

MikeOnyx,

I enjoy my Onyx Boox 60, but I'm looking at getting the Onyx Box 60 S as a present for relatives who don't need the WIFI. Could you let us know what the US retail price for the Boox 60 S - the model without WIFI - is in the US and if/when it will go on sale in the US? thanks and keep up the good work

Unfortunately, the only one available in the US is the wifi edition. There are no plans as of yet to distribute the 60 S.

Thanks for the quick reply. I appreciate that you are so transparent about the retail price. Things are a little more confusing here in Europe, where eReaders are generally more expensive, which is why I was interested in the US price. The Boox 60 is sld here for 299 or 349 €. What is your RSVP and whats the EU price of the Boox 60 S?

Every company should do something like this. Wifi is nice for some people, but it seems like a major cost upgrade for a feature that is relatively useless for pure readers.

Honestly, without wifi would make it 30 USD less at most.

And yet, the price for a wifi-less device is about €100 less... There's only one store here that sells the device (with wifi) for €299 (which is including VAT). The rest is between €350 and €399.

Sorry, the 30 USD would be off the bulk sale. If only you knew how much the bulk sale price is and then the 100 Euro difference would somewhat make sense. Of course unfortunately, I cannot tell that number to the public.

FYI €299 = $429.82. Just so there's no confusion.

Actually at the moment there are two stores that sell the Onyx Boox 60 for €299.

Librisnova (http://www.elektronischlezen.nl/ http://elektronischlesen.de/) sells it for €299, but is out of stock at the moment.
http://www.ebookreaderstore.nl had it for €299 this morning, as long as it was available, it said (op=op). But now they have it for €329. They brag about lowest price, but don't live up to it. Earlier they spoke about a lowest price guarantee, and on one site (marktplaats.nl) they even said that if you found it at a lower price they would match that and even give you €10 discount on that price. But as soon as I mailed the price of Librisnova they tried to discredit Librisnova and changed the part about the price guarantee. So much for living up to your promises.
They also have an international (English) site http://www.ebookreaderdiscounter.com/ and a German one at http://www.ebookreaderstore.de/ and they have the price of €349.
On the international site the price of the Onyx Boox 60 S is €259, but on the Ducth site it is €279. Quite confusing I would say. Even more confusing: They have an ad on the site http://www.ereaderclub.nl/ which refers to www.ebookreaderstore.nl and mentions the €299 price but if you click on it you get the €329 price. All this makes me reluctant to do business with them.
There is another site http://www.studon.nl (a small publisher) that also sells the Wifi version for €299.
