I found the inforamation, that there should exist an folder "Dicts" on the device and there you should place the dictionaries. I did(it was an stardict-dictd_www.freedict.de_eng-deu-2.4.2.tar.bz2 file), but nothing happened.
It's a typo on the FAQ-page: It must be "dicts" (with small "d").
Create this folder yourself, if it doesn't exist.

How to install Stardict dictionaries to Onyx Boox:
1. Create folder "dicts" (either on a SD-card or in internal memory)
2. Unpack the downloaded archive - it contains a folder with 3 files.
3. Create a new folder in your "dict" folder with the name of dictionary (stardict-English_German e.g.) and copy the 3 files into this folder

Now you can use it with your distionary app

StarDict installation

Booxter, that it. Thank you a lot.
Now its working well.
And thank you also for so fast delivery.
The device is exactly what I wanted to have, I wasn't disapointed in any area.

Problem SD Card Slot

Got mine for 2 days now. Everything seems to work fine.
But can't get the SD Card(sdhc 16 GB) out of the card slot. Or ist there a trick?
While testing the SD-Card the device froze 1 time, because I tried to get the card out while it was in use.
I had to use a pair of tweezers to get the card out.

Don't get me wrong the sd-card works fine, just want to get it out sometimes.

Let's hope that the shipping time is low, if it is anything similar to customer service (how long can you wait for an answer to a question?) then it suck. :P

I think, the SD-card removal feature (Manual, section 5.4.2) is supposed to avoid this.

Can I use other dictionaries too? StarDict is very old and not developed anymore!
If yes, which dictionaries are possible?

Dunno if thats the case for M92, but on my ancient Boox model, you have to press the card with a fingernail slightly inside till it "clicks" and the card gets pushed outside. THe same way you insert the card, just in reverse.

That's what i tried and it didn't work. Tried again today and it works.
Maybe it was clamped by me

Question:

In the spec (for whole M series) there is a microphone listed. Is there software to use it?

Can the new Lucky owners of M92, post a review on how is the behavior after extended
usage ?
1) Does it lose contrast when the battery goes low ?
2) Any wifi connectivity issues ie. Any disconnects after keeping it on for a while ?
3) any hangs or crashes ?

Thanks for the review!

One question from me. Can you have several books opened at the same time and if so is there an easy way to switch between them (an equivalent of, for instance, ALT+TAB key combination in Windows)?

according to a video made by jbaach, multitasking is not available

Would like to have that feature as well.
