Hi.
I'm looking for at replacement for my old prs-650.
I would like a larger (8"-ish) screen and front light.
Besides that is should run android and allow you to install apps from play store. Here in Denmark you need an app if you want to lend book from the public libraries. Currently im using calibre to manage my own collection.
Am i correct that only likebook mars and onys boox novo pro fulfills this.
And it would be really nice if there is a dictionary included or support for one, as im reading lots of books in english. It doesn't have to be a english-danish dictionary but an english one that explains the words will be fine. I can't remenber which is included in the prs-650

The Nova 2 just came out:

We have the older Nova Pro and it's very good.

worldwide -
for any library that uses overdrive, the free Libby app works on all android devices - you can browse, borrow, read,,, with that. all you need is a library card for setup
