Introducing the Cybook Orizon

Bookeen was at CES this year with a new ebook reader. The Orizon has a 6" capacitive touchscreen, with 16 level gray scale. It has Wifi and Bluetooth, and comes with 2GB of storage. According to the handout format support includes Adobe encumbered Epub & PDF as well as FB2, HTML, and TXT. The projected retail price is $249, and it should be available iby June of this year.

I didn't get to spend any time using it, but I did get some pictures.

Is this Vizplex or SiPix? So far I have only seen SiPix screens advertised as coming with capacitive touch.

As an aside, if you can get hold of a working SiPix screen it would be great to know if their contrast is in the ball park of Vizplex. It certainly seems that several companies are betting that they are good enough.

Could also be a rebranded Jinke A6t or even another boox clone...or do you guess that Bookeen created a completely new hardware design?

And how many MR users will fall for this new device thinking that Bookeen might actually support it?

Hmm interesting.

Capacitive touch screen ... so either it's a new Netronix model, or Bookeen has found themselves a new hardware supplier, as Netronix currently only makes resistive touch models (or so I am led to believe).

From this video of the Orizon:

http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DyGImN2ggt0c

... the advantage of an
under-the-eink touch screen can be seen ... Vastly Reduced Glare.

Damn you Bookeen! Trying to tempt me into buying another one of your products.

Jon, your where the one trolling there, not Harry....

I hope the Orizon is the the salon du livre in march, so I can have fun with it a bit.
Ah, from the video, it seam the accelerometer works with 180, unlike the opus.

I was hoping for a large screen. I guess they decided to just upgrade Cybook to Gen4.
