Coming soon from Bookeen: presenting…

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Bookeen is very happy to present our new readers for Fall 2013.


With several hundred thousand Cybook Odyssey sold in 50 countries, Bookeen will propose in October a new version of our best-seller, with a 6″, 600 x 800 px screen and our optimised FrontLight technology. The FrontLight, enormously appreciated by our clients, allows you to read in any conditions, even in a dark room, without eye fatigue. The Cybook Odyssey FrontLight also offers the highly-demanded choice of buttons or touchscreen.

With 4Go of internal memory, the Cybook Odyssey FrontLight can hold close to 4000 books, and more than 36,000 on a memory card thanks to the microSD port. As for content, the Cybook Odyssey FrontLight comes pre-loaded with more than 100 books, in English, Italian, German, Spanish, and French, so you can start reading right away.

And with 9 weeks of autonomy, you can enjoy reading without worrying about having to stop to charge your battery.

Mid-October, this new Cybook Odyssey FrontLight offers all the key features and qualities at a very tempting price: around 100€ in stores.


In early November, Bookeen will launch the Cybook Ocean, with a large reading surface and extra-thin 7mm design!

After 10 years developing 5 and 6″ readers, here comes the first Cybook with a large, 8″ screen, comparable to a paper book page, with a resolution of 768 x 1024px. This format provides a reading surface 79% larger than that of a standard 6″ reader, excellent for comfortably reading pdf documents, mangas or press for example.

Bookeen’s R&D worked to optimise the Ocean’s design, to provide the best reading comfort in a highly portable object; the Cybook Ocean is exceptionally thin at just 7mm.

The super-thin flat profile nonetheless integrates a new version of the FrontLight technology already crowned with success on the Cybook Odyssey. Read comfortably in all light conditions, from bright sunlight to a dark room.

With 4Go of internal memory, the Cybook Ocean can hold close to 4000 books, and more than 36,000 on a memory card thanks to the microSD port. As for content, the Cybook Ocean comes pre-loaded with more than 100 books, in English, Italian, German, Spanish, and French, so you can start reading right away.

Like all the Cybooks, the Cybook Ocean offers a record autonomy: read without worrying about recharging for up to 10 weeks.

The Cybook Ocean will be available early November for around 160€ in stores, making it a very attractive large-format offer.

We’ll provide more information about the Cybook Odyssey FrontLight and the Cybook Ocean, including photos and more technical details, in the coming days, so stay tuned!

Happy reading to all,
Bookeen Team

Cybook Screensaver Contest: Vote for the People’s Choice prize!

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Our Cybook Screensaver Contest is over, now to award the prizes! In case you missed it, the contest was to create a new Cybook screensaver image. The creators of the winning images can win fabulous prizes including a Cybook or a Cybook accessory of their choice, and the winning image will be included on Cybooks along with our official screensavers!

A huge thank you to all who participated! We received such wonderful images, some funny, some poetic, all of them inventive! Choosing the winners was no easy task… as you will see!


For the first time, in addition to our own selection, we’re awarding a “People’s Choice” award, chosen by you!

And, in response to feedback from our community, we’ve extended the voting period, and it’s now possible to vote directly on our blog!

As we received some images at the very last minute, they didn’t benefit from the same visibility as those sent at the very beginning of the contest. Also, we want to allow everyone to participate, without needing to have an account on facebook or pinterest.

The winner of the People’s Choice prize will receive a Cybook accessory of their choice or a gift check good for ebooks in the BookeenStore. The winner will be announced along with the winners selected by Bookeen, at the end of the vote!

With no further ado, here are the images in the running. Hurry and vote for your favourites, you have through MONDAY 23 SEPTEMBER!

Note: you may vote for as many of the images as you like, but of course, only once. ;)

Best of luck to all, and happy reading!
Bookeen Team
