Questions before buying M92

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of buying an M92, but haven't decided yet. I have a Notion Ink Adam tablet with Pixel Qi screen which I find adequate for my purposes. I'm only interested in the M92 as a backup and a novelty. So I can afford to wait for something that fits my expectations.

I search the forums, but not very clear about the answers to the following questions ( mostly because of the deluge of the technical terms used in the forum ) . It would be great if you guys can help me out.

1.) If I understand correctly, the M92 cannot save pdf annotation notes directly on to the pdf. Is this likely to be improved in the future? In the Adam, I can directly annotate the pdf with the Android version of the Adobe Reader, and after I transfer it to my computer all the annotations including notes will still be there.

2.) I also understand that djvu files can't be searched for text in the M92. Is this likely to be improved?

3.) Sometimes I need to check something in Wikipedia when I'm reading. I know that the M92 doesn't support multitasking. But if I exit the pdf reader and turn the web browser on, can I get to the same page in the pdf as before easily?

Thanks!

I don't think it works now on M92 like that

You're correct, djvus can't be searched on any device, it's merely a picture, showing text.

3.) Sometimes I need to check something in Wikipedia when I'm reading. I know that the M92 doesn't support multitasking. But if I exit the pdf reader and turn the web browser on, can I get to the same page in the pdf as before easily?

Yes, the device brings you back to the page you were reading.

Thanks!

Just wanted to add that DJVUs CAN contain a text layer, but not necessarily so.

So, in theory, text layer can be searched, just a question of software. I know my Windows DJVU reader can search text layer.

This is similar to how PDFs can have searchable text or can be just a bunch of scanned pages.
