Big devices - anything new?

hi guys,
after a long career, I fear my Kindle DX needs to be replaced (the usb connection is always more erratic...)
but after this long time with a marvelous 9.7'' screen, I dont want to even try smaller ebooks.
Looking into the "ebook reader matrix" though, I noticed that it says no large devices were released after 2011. I'm surprised ... is it true - or the matrix is not up to date???
What possibilities are out there for large e-ink devices?

thanks!

What about the Onyx M92?
https://onyx-boox.com/productsinfo/o...2-black-pearl/

Check out the Onyx subforum for other questions:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=220

It might not be the best for your needs, but it does have a 9.7 inch screen.

Yes, the Onyx / Icarus Excel seems promising...
I also found out the surprising news that the DX is stocked again by Amazon http://venturebeat.com/2013/06/05/am...eader-for-299/

It's also down to $189, I believe.

I'm not a fan of the lighted e-readers - too many reports of bad pixels and weird shininess. Instead I keep a penlight clipped to the spine of the leather case. I really only use it in the car at night (when someone else is driving of course). Otherwise I'm always somewhere where there is normal lighting when I want to read.

And 300 dpi while they're at it.

And, as I am dreaming anyway, exactly the same size as the current DX, so that I can re-use my Sky Dragon Oberon cover :-)
