I understand the M90 is already available in China. It would be hugely useful for my trip there next week. If I buy in China, could I switch the language to English, or install English-version software later? And in Beijing, any advice please where to buy?

You can contact the Taobao mall when they expect it to be sold and if the devices are equipped with the English language.

And is it possible to print a text when I did notices and higtlighning in it? Last question: can I make annotations an hightlitning also in pdf epub and word douments?

Yes, you can point on a word in the text to translate it, you don't have to open a program first. I need to get some more information of Onyx International about the functionality of annotations and highlighting before I answer the questions. I will answer asap!

Found a video of M90 and M91S compared with text and with pictures, the M91S is slightly faster but not much
http://v.ku6.com/show/14z-SD4048YXl_Sf.html

However I find the picture changing to be somewhat irritating, inverting the picture a couple of times every change, I wonder why, I dont think it is to clear the screen from the previous picture because then it would be the old picture that was inverted right?

I think you might find that inverting of the image exacerbated by the fact that it is recorded on video. In person I have the feeling that it is less obvious.

Lol, I have just noticed that the main picture with M90 on http://www.onyx-boox.com/ (as in http://www.onyx-boox.com/images/head...eadline-08.jpg )features a Sunday Times article called "When Frodo met Sam" about fan-fiction which portrays gay sex between famous characters.

I got a message just now telling me that my pre-ordered Onyx book will not arrive this month. Onyx did not keep their promise of sending it out before or on 15 may.
Apparantly they can't get their hands on enough Pearl eInk screens.
It's a bit of a laugh really : when I ordered my Bookeen Cybook Gen 3 the same thing happened.

I just received an email by ebookreaderstore.de

Hello,

We would like to update you about your order of the Onyx Boox M series. Eventually, Onyx communicated that we would be able to ship them out before the 15th of May.

Unfortunately we received the news that the production has been delayed. Onyx International will start production the 20th of May and plans to finish the first batch the 27th of May.


As soon as the production is finished, they will ship the goods to our warehouse. Then, it will directly be shipped to you.

Expected shipping date: 9th of June 2011.



If you don�t want to wait, you are always free to cancel your order.



Yours sincerely,

Ebookreaderstore team

*edit*: strange, the above posting wasn't there a minute ago...

Since I haven't seen this mentioned ..http://www.onyxboox.com/index.php?cPath=21 this place has the pre-order price at $399 for the M90 and $349 for the M91s with free international postage. Now that seems and EXTREMELY good price so of course I'm a bit suspicious anybody know if this is for real?

that is true and the site is a legit dealer. its the prices I will be offering as well. We haven't put up a pre-order yet because I don't want to get caught out in production/shipping delays.

Our pre-order will start @ the 20th

I've decided to cancel my pre-order. Action=reaction, really.
Once some reviews have appeared on the Onyx I'll be in a beter position to decide whether to buy the M91S or the M90 anyway.

I am also holding any pre-orders until I have read some reviews. Onyx should try to get some units out to sites like mobileread as soon as possible.
