Large eBook reader: PocketBook Pro 912 vs Onyx Book M92

Here we go again…

A few week with my brand new Sony PRS-T1 and I need to buy another one.

My little 6″ screen isn’t bad and the overall reading experience using this device is quite good… for novels. Another story for tech manuals with code examples.. for that use it is awful.

The main problem is the 6″ screen: too small. You have to pan between parts of pages and even in landscape mode is a pain. All the margin-croping function can’t soften this problem.

So I will keep this one for entertainment (or I’ll pass it to my wife) and I’ll buy a 9,7″ for job related guide readings… I recovered all my researches about ebook readers from previous weeks and changed my target.

There are a few of them around but ultimately I came up with these 2: PocketBook Pro 912 and Onyx Boox M92.

As you can see Onyx put some more effort on design while pocketbook choose a bolder style.

After a bunch of compared features videos and a review (actually this comparison is with pocketbook 902) from baach I decided: Onyx Boox M92 will be my new ebook reader.

Bought today! They say 5 days to be delivered… we’ll see.

eBook reader Sony PRS-T1

It’s here finally! My first ebook reader: Sony PRS-T1.

After a few weeks spent over blog, reviews and comparisons between any kind of ebook reader I came up with this model from Sony. This one seems to be the most versatile reader, even if other models got strong points on their side: for example Amazon’s Kindle has the power of a gigantic ebook store and you can buy books without even turn on you pc.

Sony PRS-T1 can connect -through wifi- to Google Books and a sort of generic ebook store front-end (not actually functioning in Italy).. but in Italy the first give a very small choice of titles and the 2nd one isn’t available at all. So i’ll need to use my pc (and probably Calibre) to put ebooks on it.

Maybe, eventually, I’ll share my impressions on this tree-saver device.
