I am also waiting for some reviews. However, judging by bugs reporting, it seems that for now M90/M91S may have serious and embarrassing problems with their battery power consumption. I hope they will improve it as quick as possible (i.e. before putting it on the market).

The whole thing reminds me of Pocketbooks 90x, 60x models.
Lots of pre-orders, delays, problems with firmware and so on.
Although M90, M91 sounds interesting to me i learned from Pocketbook to wait until the first shipment and reviews are available. Having done the same i wouldn't have bought the 903 'cause even today it's way behind expectations.

from what I see in the pictures: is that MiniUSB instead of MicroUSB?

Seems so. And it has a 'normal' sd-card slot and not this mini-kind of thing. I really like what I saw about the possibilities for pdf documents like 'fit-width', 'fit-height', 'fit-page' and this eliminating margins thing. I hope the pb desaster is not repeating here.

The images barely load for me, very slow.
What is the embarassing battery power problem? He said that if you use it 3 hours per day, the battery lasts for about a week.

How does that compare to the Kindle DX?

I don't consider that too bad a battery life for a device with the wacom input method. You can turn it off if I remember correctly so that would drastically increase battery life. The Kindle probably lasts much longer as it does not have to constantly power that kind of input method. I am very eager to see some in depth reviews of the finalised product/firmware. It's a hard ask to shell out $400 for a product sight unseen.

The M91s looks just about perfect for me.

If only it had RTF support.

The M91S has RTF support just like the M90. Actually, both of them probably have the same firmware.

I have found an interesting comparison beween Kindle DX and Onyx M90.

Thanks for the links. Is it just me, or does the Onyx M90 seem to have much better contrast in the pictures than the Kindle DX?

Did they use the latest version of the Kindle DX ? Otherwise the contrast of the M90 is much better!

My question is directed to people from ONYX -Europe.
May you so kindly to answer me if is possible to change the battery from Boox M90?
And my second question:
Do you know if in the roadmap features from line M90 is planned to add the possibility to have open simultaneously several files?
Remark: I had an IREX DR1000s until it broken, and I appreciate this last feature as one of the most important feature from an ereader to be used profesionally.

Thank in advance.

It is depressing that we are so close to "ship date" and nothing more has been seen or heard from about this product.

Just was emailed by onyxboox USA that the May 31 shipment will be delayed until June 15 because of firmware issues with the WIFI module.
