    1. Hello Philip,
      It’s on its way. 🙂
      Deliveries of pre-orders of the Cybook Orizon have begun, starting with the black model. We’ll receive a shipment of white Orizon on the 5th and immediately begin those deliveries as well.
      Best regards,

  1. Got mine a few days ago. My impression so far:
    • Nice formfactor, very slim, readability is good despite the touch screen, flipping a page is fast enough.
    • Pre-installed free books a bit over the top; I can’t read Italian nor Spanish.
    • I’m not impressed with its usability; especially the organisation / structure of books at the device and sorting/browsing them should be improved. Searching for books is not possible, no support for tags, searching for words within a book when reading is impossible.
    • Still need to figure out how to register DRM with Adobe. I did RTFM but apparently did something different.
    • It was very very difficult to get its MAC-address in order to get it connected in my wlan; why isn’t that just mentioned at the About page
    ?????????
    • internet: is there a way to store bookmarks or have I overlooked something? Or add another ebook-store?

    Despite these remarks I’m happy due to its speed, formfactor and readability are

    I completly agree with Paul, how can we get the Wifi Mac Address of the Orizon ? Without it, I cannot connect to my network.

  3. Helllooooo is there anybody in there… I ordered a Cybook Orizon Bookeen on Nov 8th as a Christmas gift for my son. The order is still pending. I can’t see a way to cancel so I can order a different (albeit inferior) Kindle for him instead. USA Order number 1100000156. Many thanks for any help.

  4. I have used the support contact form several times and received no response. Most recently I simply asked to cancel the order, but still the status shows as pending. Any other ideas?

  5. *Edit: I would still like to receive the Bookeen if at all possible, but it is needed for a student whose semester begins January 3rd. If there is no way to receive the product by then, my only choice is to cancel.

    1. Hello Kim,
      Thanks for this further information. I’m going to pass your messages directly to our support team and hope we can get this sorted quickly. We ship via Fedex, so I think you should be able to get the Orizon before January 3rd!
