New bookeen reader on the way?

I imagine that bookeen will be bringing out new models shortly, does anyone have any news on this?

Device: Bookeen Odyssey HD BRICKED, Kobo Glo RETURNED. is it all crap???
I don't understand why the smaller E-reader manufacturers are producing tablets. Who the hell wants to buy a first generation Bookeen-tablet when other, renowned, brands are into their 4th generation of perfectly working tablets?
Fix the weak and crappy software on your existing models first! It's nice if you got an Odyssey that functions well but a lot of them, including mine, are pure rubbish. Cant even use it as a frisbee.

Crap software ? What problem do you have ?

The hardware, on the other hand, is a casue for trouble.

hardware, software... whatever. My Odyssey was crap, that's the point. If it's the hardware, the more shame on them. I already posted a topic about it. I can understand that a lot of users have no problems (so far!) and I wish I was one of them, damn I loved this thing, but it was a piece of ... They had 1 golden idea: allowing to import the tree-structure from explorer. For the rest they are inferior to other brands. They deliver inconsistent build-quality or whatever you wanna call it and their customer service sucks. I'd rather have my neck shaved by Ray Charles than buy another Bookeen product.
Which explains my reaction: Bookeen can't even produce an ereader that works for everyone. It's like the reversed lottery: This one works, the other one bricks after a while, just hope you get lucky... Top tablet brands worldwide are experiencing sales problems because Samsung and Crapple dominate the market, who the heck would buy a ....BOOKEEN Tablet?

I had my fair lot of trouble with the odyssey(s), really , asked bookeen, they fixed it.
I'm stubborn, I had paid for something and meant to get a working one. Got the "updating" issue as well, twice. Though the fist time, it somehow revived (couldn't figure out how)

Now mine works all fine. I sure hope that by now, bookeen fixed the problems. But yeah, definitively some quality issue the the odyssey.

The bookeen tablet, it was made as a partnership with relay, to read the magazines from relay. E-reader won't do for reading magazine, hence, tablet.
But yeah, yet an other tablet.

Have you looked at pocketbook lux? Have folder view as far as I know.
