Onyx at Taipei Electronics Show 2015

This recent post on the 'News' feed on Onyx-Box's site shows their booth at Taipei Electronics Show 2015. I cannot make out most of what is on display, but did note that they have the "D67" (in spite of having released something remarkably similar as a Carta version of the C67), an "N96" (in addition to the already-known M96) and "T76 Plus" (the T76 series are 6.8" readers that has been on onyx-boox.ru for some time now). Couldn't make the rest out due to spotlight glare in the images.

Looks like the N96 still has a lower resolution screen.
I think I prefer the i86.

There's also (I think) a T86 Plus. And the phone is on the far left.

The N96 looks interesting, anyone know what those color tabs are for?

Two of the items on the spec sheet are :

-Physical button, 2 ways control page turn, easy navigation
-Built-in wifi and Bluetooth

So I would guess navigation and turning wireless connections on and off.
It has audio so two of the the navigation buttons probably switch to volume control if you are listening to audio.

I think I prefer the i86.
And it looks like the i86 Plus is the one that is about to ship in Europe.

Disappointed! Why would you release 9.7 inch with same resolution (1200x825) and Android 4.0?
This will delay Onyx 13 inch.

Yes, a new 9.7" with a resolution less than their own 8", and some 6"s (the Voyage and Glo HD) does not make a heck of a lot of sense.

It rather implies that they're simply sleep-walking in the large eReader market. Which probably in turn means that they do not think that this market is big enough to be worth putting a significant proportion of their (almost certainly tightening) R&D budget into.

But the N96 spec sheet says touch plus stylus, which is an upgrade over the M96...although I'd prefer higher res too for full screen PDF reading. As well as stable firmware.
