i don't know if it's a problem with the Nova or it's generic to
Neo Reader v2.0 but.....

Very often i read one epub from start to end and the book is said to be one or two page more even if this is not true.
Sometime the thing can be solved disabling reader / system bar or changing fonts or trying to point to the last page.
More likely i end up with book read at 99% and that defeats sorting by finished or unread book.
Is there a way to force a book to appear as read?
As of now, having loaded all my books on the device, i keep a calibre catalog to remember what i read already

ADE frustrations

This is one of the books I am trying to read, https://archive.org/details/cookinghungarian00harg
I transferred the PDF using Calibre. When I click on the book image in the library I get: "Open document failed!"
Also downloaded the URLLink.acsm using the browser but it fails to fulfill. Is there any other possible workaround? Maybe DRM is the only way forward? Thanks for any help.

I have a general question for everybody who has the NOVA regarding the surfing experience.

Is it usable as an e-ink tablet for surfing the web? I mean really how fast is opening the web pages and can I normally use it instead of the tablet or its still not recommended as a main surfing device?

In the moment I use Samsung tablet and read books on it but I frequently open the web browser to see something on internet or after some time open Duolingo (or similar app) to learn some foreign language. Also have several dictionaries from the google app store.

Can I use the NOVA the same way or its not there yet? I don't want to give 250-300 Euro (with taxes and shipping) only to be disappointed that I didn't get a cheaper device if its only usable for reading.

I was searching the web for exactly the same question but didn't find a definite answer so any help/feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't think it is acceptable yet for browsing the web but it is certainly a lot faster then earlier e-readers. It is a bit expensive at the moment, you may want to perhaps wait another year? Overall though I am really enjoying the larger screen and faster performance. Here is a quick Youtube video review that may help you decide, https://youtu.be/FLuJrYew7lE

If i got it correct, you installed Adobe Digital Edition on the Nova and you logged in with a personal account.
Then you moved the DRM-ed epub/pdf file on the nova.
If you simply tap on the book, it will use Neo Reader 2.0 as opening application and then it will say "Open document failed" as the file is crypted.
If you tap the book a little longer you will have a context menu were you can choose "open with" and then choose Digital Edition.
It work but the application is pretty basic.
Maybe if you frequent public libraries and you go around with just the Nova, it can be useful.
Quite frankly if i buy an ebook with Adobe DRM, i get rid of it on my computer and then use Calibre to send a personal unencrypted copy to the Nova.

Adobe Digital Edition Solution for Internet Archive

For some reason I do not see ADE as an option in the menu (?!?). But for Internet Archive there is at least one solution I finally rediscovered - Aldiko Book Reader (via https://support.ebooks.com/hc/en-gb/...gital-Editions). Aldiko opens the Epub version of the book by default, but hoping to be able to open the alternative PDF format as Epubs at archive.org have many small errors.

Not possible for library books I believe (nor should be used), but if that is the only route for purchased books, may be the only viable option.

I contacted Onxy via Facebook, to complain, as this device is expensive it should be easy to use ADE content without jumping through hoops. If they reply I will post. I won't hold my breath though, as they seem more into promoting their even more expensive Wacom pen support these days, https://twitter.com/onyxboox
