Smile Onyx N96\N96ML is here!

Hola!

I don't know if you are aware, but Onyx is announcing the Boox N96 on its web page: http://www.onyx-international.com/in...ucts/n96-n96ml

I don't see much improvement with respect to M96 but, what do you think?

half the RAM, same screen resolution, same everything except for the touchscreen.

Is it worth it?

Hello,

N96 has dual touch: capacitive and stilus and N96ML has frontlight and stilus.

In my opinion is worthy. I am interested in the model with front light to read at night, I usually need a lamp with my M90. But I want to see a review before buying.

It seems that what we saw yesterday was a temporary page (at least, what I saw), they updated the info.
There are 2 versions:
One with dual touch (capacitive + electromagnetic)
Another with electromagnetic touch + front light

Double Touch version does not come with front light and it has half the ram (512MB vs 1GB). Both have a 1GHz Cortex-A9 processor.

Not a huge improvement, but a revision? I don't understand that they are keeping the M96 at the same time...

You are right, the Max 13.3 with 207DPI display and i.mx.7 cpu would be a better choice for you.

Looks like there is one, according to the link.

I really cannot understand why Onyx wouldn't produce something that has 300ppi.

My m92 that I bought in 2013 has the same resolution of 1200×825 (157ppi?).

It would be great to have a faster processor (and screen).

There just isn't anything that would make me want to sell the m92 on eBay and buy the N96

Hi everyone,

I'm really interested in the N96, it seems to hit a "sweet spot" for me in terms of features.

I had a couple questions for the community and Booxtor regarding this product:

1. Do you have an estimate for when it will be available for purchase?
2. Is it possible to have full access to the Google Play store, or does this require rooting the device?
3. Does Calibre have good support for Onyx devices?

Thank you for your time,
Robert

Same situation here :-) I own an m92 (I managed to broke and change the screen twice).

I read a lot of technical books and I need to constantly switch from one book to another and move back and forth in a book. How does the M96 behave in this regard (and N96 also, I presume)?

I join to Robert questions.

Thanks for your time (and sorry for the "not so sure if correct english" expressions).

How much did it costed you changing the screen?
I have since a month a little spot of turned on pixels on the low left corner.
I thought that changing the screen was not competitive with taking an i86 (or a Max maybe)
