Cybook Ocean at the Paris Book Fair

Starting tomorrow at the Paris Book Fair (stand F13), Bookeen will present our line of Cybook readers, including the world premiere of the Cybook Ocean.

Cybook Ocean Hands

The Cybook Ocean will be available for testing on our stand. The Ocean is now announced for release between mid-May and mid-June, at a price of 179€. This reader offers a large 20.5cm (8″) screen, for 79% more reading area than a 6″ screen.

We’ve been working for the past two years to combine an extra-flat reader with an 8″ screen. As this format is new on the market, the supply of the screen has taken longer than expected.

Even if the product is not completely finalised, being able to hold one in your hands for the first time will show you that a reader with a large page size can also be extremely portable, especially encased in a new “slim” cover!

The Cybook Ocean will be available for pre-order at the Book Fair and within the coming weeks on our site.
