Bookeen Cybook Opus Soon
Well-known e-book device producer Bookeen in a presentation (PDF) late last week teased the Cybook Opus, a device it's specifically touting as pocketable. Without providing full details, the company both makes the ambitious claims for size and says it will have one of the sharpest resolutions ever at about 200DPI. It should similarly be one of the lightest at 5.3 ounces and given controls that can be used one-handed.
The reader would use 1GB of flash memory to hold books and could accept texts in at least ePub books as well as PDF files. Software features would let users pick one of 12 font sizes for readability as well as let owners organize e-books by folders. When and at what price the Cybook Opus would ship wasn't mentioned.
