Question Confused about names

Hi,

It seems these devices have lots of different names, and I can't compare them because I don't know which ones are the same.


My questions are:

Onyx Boox-60 = BeBook Neo = Wolder Boox = Boox Wifi tactile?

Boox-S = ???

The difference between http://www.mundoebook.es/lectores_eb...r-Ebook-BOOX-S
and http://www.mundoebook.es/lectores_eb...book-BOOX-WIFI is only connectivity?

Which one is this one:

The Boox S not only lacks Wifi but also does not have the touch screen. For normal reading not such a problem, but as a result you also lose functionality such as looking up words in a dictionary or sketching.

The one on the fnac site is said to have no wireless, so is probably the Boox S.

The surprising thing is that these sites say they have the Boox S in stock. I've never seen any confirmation that the device has actually gone into production.

You can buy Boox-S branded Wolder several weeks ago:

Boox S is the same as the BeBook One?

No. Bebook One is the same as Wolder Boox (without -S) and Onyx Boox 60.
All of them have wifi and touch screen.

The BeBook Neo is the same as the Onyx Boox 60.

The BeBook One is a Hanlin V3, which is an older device (still good though) from Jinke (not Onyx). If you buy a Bebook One today, you probably get the Hanlin V3+, which is slightly updated hardware (e.g. 8 gray scales) in the same basic shell.

Upps!
Sorry. I got the wrong name. Bebook Neo, of course.
