Sale Alert! Bookeen Cybook Opus eBook Reader at $80!

August 25, 2010 Leave a comment


Update: Sorry, guys, it’s now SOLD OUT!

Some specs that I liked:

  • Black & White 4 levels grey-scale
  • E-Ink screen 5 (3 x 4 – 76mm x 101mm)
  • Micro SD slot for adding optional MicroSD memory cards for expanded storage capabilities / Mini USB slave
  • OS – Linux 2.6 / Adobe ePUB/PDF Reader / Multi-format reader includes HTML, TXT, JPG, GIF, PNG
  • Portrait and landscape mode
  • Rechargeable and replaceable Internal Battery LI-Polymer (1000mAh), 8 000 page flips – 2 weeks battery life average per full charge

I expect this one to go really really fast! $79.99 for an E-Ink screen reader with free shipping? Hello? Magic price! The screen is smaller at 5″ – but you can read on landscape mode if that bothers you. If you like, don’t hesitate, head on to Buy.Com right now! (It costs $144.59 on Amazon, but you can check out the reviews there).

I know that one of the pet peeves of Kindle owners is that you can’t check out an eBook from the public library and read it on the Kindle. Well, if your library has a good collection of eBooks, this Bookeen Cybook Opus eBook Reader would be a pretty good secondary reader – it can read digital books that are in AdobeTM (ADE) secured format (EPUB or PDF). That includes library eBooks and also eBooks that you buy from practically all the sellers who are NOT named Apple/Amazon/B&N. (ex. Kobo Books/ Sony Reader Store/ Harlequin, etc)
