Booxtor & Hanvon E920

Booxtor since you work for an e-reader shop, would you consider contacting hanvon to send you a sample of their E920 reader for testing purposes as you have done with M92? I looked around in their website and they seem to be interested in retailers (link).

Hi,
I am a new member and have been following Onyx's Threads for around three months now.
While a vast amount of information and discussions here helped me to narrow down my choice of the first e-reader I want to buy, there are still some questions I have not found the answers for... So I had to join the forum and ask myself

Thank you Booxtor for the great review of the new Onyx Boox M92 and for the great support you provide to your customers and the forum members!

The review you've made have persuaded me to buy an M92, but then my partner found out about JetBook Color and we decided to wait for their comparison.

While waiting for that, I also laid my eyes on Hanvon E920, because it seems to be a better e-reader, resolution-wise, compared to JetBook Color.

But there are no reviews on either the JB or Hanvon, so we are forced to postpone the purchase, which is very inconvenient...

When I came across this thread I thought "That's it. I'll find the answer here!". I was really hoping for a review to come soon, but the time goes and the review does not appear...

Has Hanvon advised you about when the WISEreader E920 would be delivered to you for a review? Cause I'm sure you would not delay reviewing it if you would have already received it...

Could you please keep us posted on this matter...

P.S. You are doing a great job, helping all of us!


One last thing, I was wondering why there is no Hanvon Thread on the forum? Is is possible to somehow create it? (Sorry for my ignorance... I do not use forums a lot... ) Is there a way to suggest this to Moderators?

Thank you in advance!

How can someone out of China order a Hanvon reader? My understanding was that these are available only on the Chinese market.... ?

Hi,
I have direct contact to Hanvon Germany and I've ordered my sample there... But, recently I got the message, that because of some reasons Hanvon Germany closes the ereader branch in Germany
The Hanvon China shows no reaction to all my inquiries..
From some internal sources I know that the Triton technology is not as technically mature as it is praised. That is why only few prototypes have been showed currently and I wouldn't seriously count on it this year.

According to http://www.ectaco.com/jetBook_Color/ , Ectaco Jetbook/Hanvon E920 is already shipping, but I did not find any reviews of it yet.

Last Friday I had a talk with Ectaco officials in Germany and they told me, that even in USA it is still not available. In Germany they are going to start selling in April, but it is also not for sure.
As soon as a sample device arrives in Germany, they will send it to me for testing and review.

Wow! April!
Too bad... They've lost a potential customer...
But on the bright side, there is only one option left for me - Onyx Boox M92!!

It sounds for me like a déjà vu. Exactly one year ago (on 6th February 2011) I asked "Hanvon Technology (Deutschland) GmbH" when I will be able to buy their Hanvon E920 in Germany.
They told me, that E92 will be avaible in the first half of 2011

Kept looking every time I went to China, but it seems they don't have them in the stores, online only. And I would never buy this without actually having seen a unit at this stage in the game.

And not sure if I could get the sales tax refunded.
