Bookeen to Launch 8″ eReader – the Cybook Ocean

Just saw this posted on Nate's blog and thought it would interest some folks here...

Quote:
The French ereader maker Bookeen is back in the news again today with new details about their next ereaders. In addition to a lower priced Cybook Odyssey, Bookeen also plans to launch a new 8″ ereader.
Quote:
Details are still limited on the Cybook Ocean, but I do know that it has an 8″ screen with both a touchscreen and a resolution of 1024×768. My source indicates that this is not an E-ink screen at all, and that suggests that the Cybook Ocean is using a screen from Ganzhou OED technologies.

A similar 8″ screen is being used on the Pyrus Maxi, teXet TB-138, and the Icarus 8. I don’t have any performance details yet, but I can see from the E-ink website that 8″ is not a screen size that E-ink has on hand for sale.

But here they said it would be a 7- inch reader.

If you go look at the original source you will see that this is an 8" ereader. Johannes of lesen.net was the only one to get this story; we all worked from him. Also, I cited the similar 8" screens.

And so far as I know there is no 7" E-ink or epaper screen available - not from any company.

And it's also interesting to know that the hew version of the Cybook Odissey will be a step down from HD to ordinary 800 x 600 of the screen resolution.

Yeah, this is a real bummer for me. I was considering an Odyssey but not sure if it will remain on the list now.
