Max Lumi - Is it possible to buy one yet anywhere?

Thanks to this forum I stumbled onto the Onyx range, the Air & Max Lumi, both look super.

Honestly I have not been this excited about e-reader offering since I got my iLiad back in 2006 (RIP).

Yet, it does not appear to be available for purchase or have I missed something?

If it is not for sale any idea on RRP and when it might be released?

The website is somewhat unclear on points.

They seem to be sold out on the official Boox Shop.

However, it looks like they may be getting in some stock at the ereader.store in Germany. That's where I've bought all my Onyx devices from even though I live in Canada.

I don't believe it's going to be available again this year. Good e-Reader put out a blog post last month saying they won't receive any units until mid January. If they can't get any, I doubt anyone else can.

I would like to be wrong though. If anyone has any inside information, please share. I already asked Onyx by e-mail but they are not responding thus far.

Well there have been supply chain issues across the world due to the madness, so I should imagine 2020 being the tree at it was has a lot to do with it.

This looks like a very nice NEW model - http://onyxboox.com/boox_kontiki2

I never noticed before but it is a bit strange to see a site such as onyxboox.com without a SSL cert.

Hehe. I still own an iLiad, too. Time flies.

Just relax. Onyx releases new ebook reader versions almost every 6 months.

Good to know as I did think the range could do with some focus and trimming down!

Slash that old stock and clear input.

I dunno. 3/4 models almost seems like enough. It causes decision fatigue with too many choices.
