Cybook Update

The past few months our dev team has been hard at working on an update for your Cybooks with some new features we think you’ll be very happy about. What, for instance? Well…

  • Reading time indications (time left before the end of the chapter / the end of the book)
  • Notes export
  • Library: optimisation of the sort order depending on the active view
  • Library: sort by file name
  • New keyboard localisations
  • Multi-line keyboard for note taking
  • Menu: new icons
  • NB For the beta-test, the new features are labelled in English and French only. Of course, translations in all the languages available for the interface will be included  in the official release.

Like the last time, before making this upgrade publicly available, we’d like to have a short beta-test with a small group of experienced users.

So, Cybook Odyssey, Muse & Ocean users, if you would like to be the first to discover all the new features our dev team has been working so hard on, hurry and sign up!

How can I participate?

Then “Submit a ticket” and request the Beta-test.
Don’t forget to fill in your name and the serial number of your Cybook!
You’ll find the serial number on the back of your Cybook, or in the “About” menu available from the home page.

Next, charge your Cybook’s battery! The test will be launched very soon with the update available starting tomorrow, so quick, grab your keyboard and sign up!

/!\ NB Due to hardware incompatibility, this update will unfortunately not be available for the first versions of the Cybook Odyssey, manufactured in 2011 and 2012. Thank you for your understanding.

Happy reading, and happy beta-testing!

Cybook Ocean: thin like…

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

The Cybook Ocean will be the thinnest reader in the world at a mere 7mm! That’s really thin. So thin, it’s hard to imagine without seeing it! So how can we demonstrate it visually? Photo of a reader next to a pencil, next to a coin… been there, done that. So we’re looking for some new ideas.

How would you show just how thin the Cybook Ocean is? The most creative idea could win a Cybook Odyssey 2013!

To get you started, here’s a photo of our very first Cybook, from over 12 years ago, next to the Cybook Ocean. We’ve come a long way, baby!

Happy reading and good luck to all,

Cybook Ocean at the Paris Book Fair

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

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.
