Les Echos has this reader

Check http://www.lesechos.fr/epaper/offre-eread.htm. It is supposed to have an english version available soon and some of the eBooks on the site are already in English. The specs say it is SDK format so perhaps it is unmodified but perhaps this is just an error.

It's a Ganaxa. Which is a STAReBOOK. And a Netronix EB-100. And, with a completely different set of firmware - one that doesn't support STK but does support Mobipocket - it's an "original hardware" Cybook Gen3. IOW, the hardware is the same across these devices. You could also buy an ExPlay - same deal.

However, I've *GOT* one of the EB-100s; I just received it a couple of weeks ago. Let me say that the "Let us create an STK ebook" process is not one for the timid. I much prefer my Cybook Gen3 - even though it doesn't have the hardware upgrades that users now placing their orders will get. Why? Because I like the Mobipocket format for its widespread availability.

Maybe you might want to buy a Cybook Gen3? From Not Another E-Book? They're still selling the Cybook Gen3 for $375 plus S&H. And they'll ship just about anywhere. (Of course, I *know* this because I work for NAEB. )

649 Euros = 1,007.96 USD, yes, but it is part of Les Echos annual subscription, which brings the price of the reader to 150 euros. Not too bad...
The Ganaxa platform is one of the most sophisticated one, multi column, hyphenation, etc. They will announce some new interesting features in June.
