After the run around I have gotten from Sony trying to get them to ship the reader, I can't wait to get a Cybook. Plus, I like the fact they support mobipocker and I LOVE this part:
Quote:
“On the Cybook, you don't need to convert your files to an exotic format or upload them to any proprietary web site. You simply transfer your files directly to the device and read them natively” said Laurent Picard, co-founder of Bookeen.
That is totally sweet!!

I am just going to cancel the order on my Reader and wait a few more months for the Cybook. I will pay $350 for it. Sony can eat my dust.

While all of you Cybook owners are using DRM based MobiPocket formatted books, I'll stick with my DRM free LRF books. Of course, if I had a device that uses MobiPocket, I'd also have DRM free books for that too.

OooOOOOooooo! (to quote Les Nesman.) That means that, since ePub is HTML-based, you can add ePub e-books to it in the future (with maybe a bit of conversion work). Nice!

Of course, you do know that Digital Editions books will be filled with this horrible thing called DRM. So good luck going DE to HTML.

if MobiPocket on the Cybook Gen3 has dictionary support, does that mean it will have hyphenation support as well?

Although I don't doubt that somewhere along the line, support for Palm .pdb and other formats will probably be worked in. I'd like to see FB2 format, and if it is *NOT* proprietary, I wonder if we can't somehow shoehorn in support for LRF. I'll have to ask.

reading .epub

First, of all, yippee! I plan to be one of the first buyers!

will it read .epub format out of the box?

Will it display images with the hirsc attribute? What about .jpegs?
http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/articl...ile=images.htm

How would it fare with pdf's formatted for the Sony Reader?

They cracked .lit DRM. There's always hope that the industry at-large will give up on DRM, as many independents already have. But if Cybook will support ePub, that'll work too.

I wonder how many people are going to get hand-me-down Sony Readers once the Cybook Gen3 comes out? I'm still waiting for my $49 Reader to come in, but I'll probably pass that on to the wife, look at getting a Cybook, and sell my eb1150. The simple fact that it'll read many formats natively is sweet!

This may have already been mentioned in this thread and I missed it, but from where will the Cybook be purchased? NAEB? Retailers? Online website? Or perhaps this hasn't been decided yet?

Can't wait to get my hands on one of these babies!!!

They might be able to provide that by using the directional control. Put the unit in "word select mode", then navigate around until the word you want is the one selected. It shouldn't be too slow (other than the screen response time... that could be pretty bad, actually.)

Well, maybe not.

This may be the wrong thread to ask but:
How fast startup time of this thing is going to be?
Anything on the real batterylife? I know Bokeen states 8000 pageturns but, well, we have had statements like that before...
Is there going to be a hibernate function?

The answers to these 3 question could well decide if this device is going to be an Iliad killer or not.
