Bookeen Cybook Orizon eReader ships in October

Posted on Thursday, September 23 2010 @ 16:26:54 CEST by


Bookeen promises to start shipping its Cybook Orizon eReader in October. This 7.6mm thin device is based on the SiPix Caress touch ePaper technology, it has a 6" screen with 167 dpi resolution, 16 levels of gray and multi-touch support so you can enlarge/reduce character size with your fingertips. The Orizon is equipped with 2GB internal memory and features a microSD memory card slot, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a micro-USB port.

A built-in motion sensor automatically adjusts to portrait or landscape mode and there's also a built-in browser that delivers "unrestricted" access to the web. The eReader ships with 150 books preloaded (presumably public domain?) and promises a battery life of up to 10,000 consecutive pages.

Bookeen's Cybook Orizon will be available for pre-order starting September 25th at bookeen.com and retail partner sites. Pricing is 229.99EUR, which is quite expensive considering that you can get Amazon's Kindle 3 WiFi shipped to you for under 150EUR.
Bookeen, the European leader of the ebook reader market, will launch its next-generation reading device, the Cybook Orizon in mid-October. Suggested retail price is 229.99€.

Thinner than a newspaper and lighter than a book (245 g – 8.6 oz), the Cybook Orizon boasts a non-glare, multi-touch screen with reading quality close to that of paper.

Thanks to its integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, the Cybook Orizon lets you very easily download your book in a few seconds.

Its sleek lines (it’s just 0.29’’ – 7.6 mm thick) give book lovers an elegant tool for a unique reading experience.

The Cybook Orizon was developed in its entirety by Bookeen’s engineering teams in France.
