Coming soon from Bookeen: presenting…

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

CYBOOK ODYSSEY FRONTLIGHT

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.

CYBOOK OCEAN

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

    Since I would like to use the Cybook Ocean to improve foreign languages (mainly deutsch) will TTS functionality and single words translation good & fast enough to make it useful? Is it available a detailed description on how TTS will work (i.e. as simple as touching a word to get it pronounced and translated in a target dictionary)? I think it would really be worth having such a wonderful learning tool!

    Hi Bookeen Team,

    Any news to the Cybook Ocean available?

    Hello Mauro,
    reading is certainly an excellent way to improve your foreign language skills, and the dictionary function is very useful for that. :) I don’t have any information at the moment about TTS, but be sure to keep watching our blog, as soon as more information is available we’ll post it here.
