Cybook Gen3 e-reader in September 2007 for $350

Bookeen has tortured us all for the past few months revealing only few (but yummy) details on the new Cybook e-reader. Well, we think your long, arduous wait might be over soon. Michael Dahan of Bookeen sent in the official press release announcing that the Cybook Gen3 (finally this baby got a name!) has entered production and is ready to enter the market this coming September (at a starting price of US $350).

Quote:
"The screen is truly like a sheet of paper, it can be viewed from nearly any angle and in a wide range of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight" said Michael Dahan, co-manager of Bookeen. "The ebook industry will clearly reach another stage with the new Cybook." Laurent Picard added: "Our ongoing partnership with Mobipocket is a great opportunity to bring their tremendous digital content to a new category of customers and to offer the most competitive device to the end user."
So the Cybook will be the second E Ink-based reader, following the iRex iLiad, to officially support Amazon's Mobipocket format which can display DRM-protected e-book content.

In case you've missed our earlier news, the Cybook Gen3 will be the first e-book reader to feature E Ink's next generation Vizplex e-paper technology which promises better contrast and a faster refresh rate than previous E Ink technologies. With a 6-inch screen and a 166 dpi resolution, the device will have a total weight of only 6.1 ounces (174g).

Follow the official press release after the jump.
