Question Boox Nova Pro?

Has anyone heard of the Nova Pro?

I asked https://twitter.com/onyxboox about the Nova's availability in the UK. They said...

"The Nova will not be available in the UK but the Nova Pro will in early 2019 on EU Amazon."

I thought they meant the Nova Plus - and I expressed my disappointment, because I really want a front light.

They said...

"The Nova Pro has a front light and better than the Nova. If you can wait, wait for it."

So... errr....? I can't find any information about the Pro online. Does anyone know what they're talking about? Or, failing that, where I can buy a USB-C eReader in the UK?

I ordered mine from the ereader.store in Germany. Hopefully, it will ship in the next few days. I guess it really depends on how many pre-orders there were.

Am very jealous. Mine will likely take a bit longer to arrive as I placed an order for the Note Pro at the same time so I suspect that my Nova Pro won't ship until the Note Pro is available sometime after March 18th. Should have placed the orders separately.

So far as I am aware, the lookup dictionary needs to be in stardict format, but I could be mistaken. Of course, you could always install the Kindle app and see if you could do it that way. Have only ever bought one ebook from Amazon so am not very familiar with the Kindle experience.

As for apps, that all depends on your needs. Two ones which I like are FX File explorer and Moon+ Reader Pro. There are also a few others which I use for reading Japanese and Chinese. Apart from that, I haven't installed a lot of apps.

I've received complimentary standard cover case which I don't like and will try to find good replacement.


@Question Mark, thank you! Wish you to get it as quickly as possible

I want extra pens. Like marker for transparent mark and pen for calligraphy with 45 degree angle and layers for sketches It is simple to add. I wish I get it sometime.

So, when directly browsing the web, what's your experience with your chosen browser in terms of:
* Page rendering accuracy: does it render pages as they SHOULD render
* Speed of download and rendering
* How does it handle streaming media like Pandora, or YT

The link worked when I clicked on it and the story/ad/press release mentioned the screen was flush with the bezel.
