Sneak peek at the Bookeen Cybook Gen3 packaging

The Bookeen blog has posted a picture of what the packaging will look like for their third generation reading device, the Cybook Gen3. I know the box shouldn't matter all that much, but somehow just seeing a decent box can get you all excited about a product. (Click through to the full article page, and then click on the thumbnail to see the full sized picture.)

It's good to see, the blog had been quiet for a while. It's promising to see that the online shop is opening soon too.

Or electrons, anyway...

And when the device comes out, someone can say: "Well, I'll be damned if I can find anything wrong with it!"

Is the box in a 1:4:9 size ratio? If so, cue the music...
