Cybook Gen3 samples getting ready!!!

Well, Pamela Gadsden of NAEP just commented on Bean that the bill for the Cybook Gen3 samples was getting in:

Quote:
Bookeen has just sent us the bill for the samples.
I would have bought them today but the bill is in Euros ( just try that on your Master Card ).
We've reminded them that we're on the other side of the Atlantic ( but if necessary we can do a currency exchange and send them a bank check.).
Your patience, for which we thank you, is about to be rewarded.
Sounds like we're soon going to see a lot of lovely first-hands review of the newest reader in town!

This time they caught whatever was going wrong and the order went through.
Bookeen uses FedEx and NAEB is waiting!
So I hope we'll get the review soon^^

Having no other ebook reader to tide me over in my wait for the cybook I have been constantly reading the mobileread forum to calm me. My better half is a computer geek and finds it hilarious that I have now become a forum junkie myself. I await the upcoming reviews with bated breath.

[Bookeen] Information concerning the samples

Hello to the Mobileread community,

Several engineering samples have been distributed these last days to different partners (in US, Europe and Russia). We had very few units, and we are currently out of stock.

The BAEN Cybooks are on their way. Thank you Pamela and Derek for your patience.

One of our french partner (M21 publisher) just received his Cybook yesterday, he has put a first reaction (in french) and a first picture on his blog (here).

Best regards to all of you,

Thank you,

Michael Dahan

Michael, may I make a suggestion: Once you have a unit at hand again, could you send it to an MobileReader member/editor for a long review and discussion?

I appreciate the news update, btw!

Here's the Google auto-translation of the post...
Here is the first specimen in France of famous Cybook de Bookeen so much awaited. Waiting was worth the sorrow, it very is successful.

I recall, for those which had not followed all the preceding episodes, that Bookeen is a French company, as its name does not indicate it, than they are at the origin of the first electronic books of the generation 2000 - 2002 with (already) Cybook de Cytale… and than they return to the load with now electronic paper and a super reader of 174 G with battery!

As a partner, we are charmed to be the first in France to test it. To date 2 other specimens were delivered in Europe and 3 to the United States. Marketing should start in the next weeks… with an initial version with 350 euros and a version luxates to 450.

The near total of the catalogue of M21 Editions will be available on Cybook before its launching. In first, the book Gutenberg 2.0 is already, which was least things. We will quickly reconsider this subject with particularly gravitational special offers. To follow…

That made me laugh
But interesting to know that the deluxe version will cost 450 €.
