There is an entry in the german forum that says that a batch of devices is on its way, and that people should have their 912s by the end of next week.

912 in Germany will be around 330 €, and what I read about the FW from german beta-tester "Dolansky" it seems to come close to what they promised with the release of 903 last year. Unfortunately it can't offer a Pearl display, but from all things I've seen about M-Series I'd go for a PB.

BTW, 912 is nearly identical to 903 (only difference is missing UMTS slot in 912) which is on sale in Germany for a little more than the 912: click

thanks for your reply. i am sure PB as is company is better than Onyx Boox.
Booxtor review [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EL43...=youtu.be]here [/YOUTUBE]however for M92, seems to be positive. i wonder if a Pearl display and the faster ram will worth taking the risk with Onyx Boox?

What do you know about the company and what exactly does "better" mean?
I think most people buy larger screens for PDF-viewing. It seems to me important therefore how these devices handle PDFs. For many users annotation-capability is crucial. There seems to be quite a difference between PB and Onyx.

in the Onyx form people dislike the pervious serious of M90/91 and the lack of upgrade.
on other hand, PB seems to be active with their customers and had released upgrades for all of their devices. they have branch in EU , US. which unlike Onyx, the have responsibility for.
my main aim is to read PDF , so i may wait for M92.

Device: Onyx Boox 60, PocketBook Touch
PocketBook has been around a bit longer than Onyx, but they do have something in common: Both companies seem to be recovering from a quality dip that was probably caused by growing pains. It is not so long ago that there were lots of complaints on the forums about failing PB firmware, and the bad quality of the PB 302. With the M90 Onyx seems to go through a similar phase.

PocketBook is a larger company than Onyx, and they have different business models. Onyx is primarily a business-to-business company; they don't want to be responsible for resellers.

They are both dedicated e-reader makers (as opposed to the "major brands"), and both do their own R&D. They are both quite serious about wanting to be on the e-reader market for a long time.

PocketBook is a Swiss company that has its root in Ukraine. Onyx is a Chinese company.

I would not say one is "better" than the other. They are different, but also have common elements.

Device: Boox PB360 etc etc etc
Also Onyx has former Irex employees at its root. They learned how to from Irex. Both PocketBook and Onyx have been around about the same length of time. I started selling the PB301 just a short few months before I started selling the PB 360 and the Onyx Boox 60. Both of those devices I still believe are stellar and simply the best of their time.

Both companies take a similar approach to PDF reading with both offering persistent zoom when even Sony wasnt doing that yet.

Onyx had annotation long before PB including being able to zoom in, write on the page and then zoom back out. Onyx has selection zoom too(as did Irex) which should be a requirement for every pdf reader. I cant remember if the 6/9 -03s of PB have yet.

Pocketbook however has column reading which is really hard to do without once you've used it. PB was also the first to incorporate pics/diagrams in the reflow of a pdf and "Active Contents" so that when you bookmark, highlight etc those things show in the Table of Contents.

And now you are caught between a rock and a hard place

Order both and find out which one is best for you, return the other. Don't ask ( you'll start another religios war ) jusst try and find out. Nobody else can REALLY help you, because everybody has it's preferences.
PB 602 is perfect for me, my wife loves her SONY PRS-350 and we both hate each other one's

Best luck and Merry X-Mas

buying both is not an option.. as i need to pay 600 pound for both ! and be bothered with the postage again. i am in the UK, and i think i need to buy one of these from any online store based in Germany.
i guess i have to take the risk

not the Onyx, but the new pocketbooks (including the 611 basic, the 612 and the 912) are available in the UK from the greenreader - I've bought 3 devices from them, and never had any problems (including no questions asked return for a unit not functioning properly), and £5 for shipping. I could not find a UK based reseller for the Onyx, though.

You can't even use the pen for annotations in PDFs, and navigating between notes und documents is simply cruel - I think as far as PDFs go we/they are only in an experimental/developmental phase - and they have been working on this(or not) for over a year now.

actually, this is not correct: since 2.1.1 firmware you can annotate PDF files free hand, as well as highlight words and passages, and you can easily move between notes and document (just press the "book" button to get to the notes), and with the latest reelase you can also quickly jump between the last 4 open pages in each document. Quite good if you use it for work.
