Legibility. The text appears more readable to me surrounded by a black frame than when surrounded by white. Perhaps it's glare off the white frame.

Hi,
I prefer a black model, I think it's better for the contrast between the screen and the border.

Hmm.. It looks like the Onyx guys "solved" the problem with the IR button. Now it does not response at all or only after you swish at least 10-20 times over it..
It seems they have reduced the sensitivity of it too much.

It's always better then a piece of paper over it, isn't it?

Or perhaps your finger are very cold... . I think i will have to perform sexual activities before using my M90 in future...

Indeed It is better to to perform sexual activities INSTEAD of using a M90 in future.. Especially if those are not only activities to get your fingers hot

I'm too waiting for people to get some M90 and talk about them to decide, I want a 9.7" for PDF's, Manga and such

I'm deciding between Pocketbook Pro 902/903 and Onyx Boox M91S/M90, and I'm becoming more inclined to the Onyx one, it's a damn beautiful reader too but some people talked about the Pocketbook Pro disaster, what are you referring to? If someone can link to me some information I would appreciate.

This one it's just coming out now too, so it is expected some issues, that's gonna be solved as more people have it and report the problems

And while I think Kindle 3 it's still one of the best eReaders, I think Kindle DX isn't even near the top of 9.7", at least for me. It doesn't make sense having a hardware keyboard for something of that size and the functionality isn't that great, should be equal to Kindle 3 at least. Maybe using Duokan with it, but I still think it's ugly as hell xD

JSWolf it is like CTH says. The sensors have a range of output, call it 1-5. you can change the firmware to react differently to that range, and you change the timing of the reaction.

so if previously when the output was "2" the firmware did "action A" you change it to "action b" and have that change made only if the output remains 2 for a certain amount of time.

On first glance the the Pocketbook Pro 902/903 and the Onyx Boox M91S/M90 are quite similar, so if someone will know both ... ?

Another thing I'd love to know is how much the battery of a M91s last longer compared with an M90?
Does the processor really make a difference when it comes to large pdfs? Mine do quite regular have 20 MB...

Can anyone seriously imagine making annotations/marks with this stylus black on black and white? And there still is no export function...
Or do you really need it for navigation in pdfs?

Just a little patience please Tomorrow I am going to upload some videos with both devices. At the moment is the PocketBook reader (PB Pro 903) clearly the winner of the comparison. It is much faster, is very stable and looks more classy. Just one thing I like better on M90 - the "hide margins" mode by PDF settings.

I'll be waiting for it then

But remember 903 was delaying a lot too, I don't even know if we can already have it or not. But software things gets fixed with time, I'll only buy my 9.7" in the end of summer, so I have time to consider

I am also looking forward to this comparison. I am still on the fence, I have been going back and forth between the PB Pro 902 and the M91S. I am not sure about that huge border around the screen on the PB Pro 902, but if it functions better as a PDF reader I may still consider it. Can't wait to see your comparison, thanks!

As far as I know, PB903 has annotation just in latest beta firmware and it's not that stable. I would be interested in a PB903 vs. M90 comparison when both firmware are stable and final.

Booxtor: M90 was my favorite over PB903 because of Pearl screen. How big is the difference between the screens ?
