Bookeen Cybook Spec Leak

Bookeen's upcoming Cybook device should be flexible, according to sources familiar with its development. Although the eBook reader should support copy-protected formats like Mobipocket, additional support should come for more universal standards such as HTML, PDF, and RTF; it will also run the Open eBook format and even play MP3 files for some audiobooks or background music, the contacts say. The 6-inch e-ink screen should be useful for about 8000 pages on a single charge despite a reader only a third of an inch thick.

Additional information given as part of the link suggests that the reader will make a fully international debut in mid-July, shipping for $350 US and 350 Euros in North America and Europe. Some details, such as onboard flash memory, remain unknown. [via MobileRead]
