AliExpress informed me that my Nova has been shipped. I should receive it in 6-13 days. I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do.

I just bought it at Taobao Tmall at US$225.
Hope it gets delivered safely to me as it's my first purchase on Taobao.

I got mine today. Fiddled with it for a while, so far so good. Everything is working as expected. I don't have high expectation for any E Ink device.

When I opened it, I found some fingerprints on the screen. If it's not the first batch for sale, I probably would think it's a returned item from an unsatisfied buyer. Maybe Boox is too busy at new products to ask their tester or assembly line workers wear gloves. Overall the build quality is fine, better than my Max2.

After a heavy CPU use, like installing several Apps, you can feel the lower part of the device back become a bit of warmer. Common use won't trigger this issue.

The third party home-brewed app Floating F5 I introduced before in the forum can be found in the built-in app store. A little surprise.

Hope you guys can get your Nova delivered safely.

Hi cqman,

How in the world did you get the Nova so quickly!
Glad to hear your positive review on it.

Can't wait for mine to arrive.

Although I would really like to have a front light on such a device, I think I will wait until the Nova Plus makes an appearance.

The ability to use a stylus in addition to a finger is more important to me than the light... However, hope the Nova works out well for those who decide to take the plunge. I will be interested to hear how it performs compared to other Onyx devices currently on the market. I am encouraged to hear that the build quality seems good.

waiting for mine, i was gonna order likebook mars from aliexpress but some sellers explicitly said in the purchase pages of mars it is better if we order the boox nova
and when checking there latest buyers feedback a lot of the recent complaints came from people who purchased the likebook mars.

with the coupons and what not it came to about 254 usd inculding the shipment and vat to saudi arabia, so yeah i guess it is a good deal as eink readers go.
