Bookeen Cybook Teaser
Bookeen today launched a teaser site for its upcoming Cybook reader, signaling the impending announcement of the device. Most details are virtually absent but the company promises a genuinely portable design, which will be as thin as a magazine but with the same surface area as a paperback novel. A simple directional pad will handle the bulk of navigation tasks. Format support is also vague, though the inclusion of graphics and complex layouts suggests a minimum of PDF support.
Like most eBook readers, however, the Cybook is known to have a monochrome digital paper display that only consumes power when turning pages and should sideload books either through USB or removable flash storage.
Release information is only hinted at through the page, which asks interested visitors to "stay tuned" for an announcement in the near future. The Cybook might only be available in Europe during its initial launch. [via MobileRead]
