And now that it's not a problem (at least) for me, I cannot see myself pulling out the stylus everytime to turn a page, look up a word, navigate in the menu....

So if the screens surface of the Cybook has a similar texture, it may not even be an issue.

I know that there isn't a lot of love for Bookeen, but has anyone heard anything about the Orizon launch? The CES debut said June 2010, but then there was the SiPix delay...

The Gen3 is a good device, works well and does all I need it to do as a reader.

Ebouquin website told it has been postponed until September. In the meanwhile, Sony (maybe), Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Acer, Asus and Samsung will have their new ereaders on market. So, who cares about Bookeen? Not me, for sure.

I'm very fond of Bookeen. My Gen3 worked superbly for 2 years until I crushed it in a bag on an Indian railway, and their customer service replied promptly to the couple of questions I raised.

Maybe the posters are a vocal minority, but out of the 15+ threads I've read about Cybook products, almost all of them had comments about bad CS, lousy support and late or nonexistent firmware updates.

You should read more thread, or just read them instead of skim them.
