Smile italica eReader

italica, introduced the new italica Reader at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Sleek, minimalist, lightweight and very easy to use, the new italica Reader uses innovative technology to make eBook reading a completely natural experience for readers. Through the company’s partners, consumers will receive an end-to-end reading solution including access to thousands of digital books in the first phase (Q4 2009) and newspapers/magazines in the second phase (Q3 2010).

italica Reader features a predictive icon-based user interface. Navigating one’s library is easy through ‘Library List View’ where you can quickly find your favorite novel. The best in class E-Ink display allows clearer resolution without the need for a backlight, making reading comfortable and more engrossing. It also reduces eyestrain. A reader will forget that instead of a printed page, one is holding the latest technology in his hands.

Hi Ekta and welcome to the forum ! thanks very much for telling us about the italica reader, i hadn't heard of it before. from the website it looks like Netronix hardware but with a personalised firmware. I see it has support for both epub and mobipocket (prc) and one of the icons is for a dictionary, i'll be very interested to know more about this !

i am going to move this to the news forum for now, since it is a new model.

for people interested, here is the italica website : http://www.italicareader.com/index.php?lang=eng

How is this so innovative? Others including Pocketbook & Sony have icon based interfaces. The hardware looks like it's from Netronix. I really don't see anything all that unique. What formats do you support with DRM?

It's definitely a Netronix device - probably an EB600 (ie the same hardware as the CyBook, Cool-ER, etc).

I created a wiki page Italicabut it basically just provides links to the site and points to the EB-600 page.

It seems some what interesting, but just the same as all the other netronix are to me. I'll really take a shine once OI or something similar is available.

This is interesting in that it appears to have a dictionary. If so, it'll be the first EB600 device to offer one for ePub.

Thank you, igorsk; I did not realise that was an EB600.

AFAIK the original 301 was EB100 and the Plus model is EB600, but the firmware is 99% identical.

Looks like one of the Netronix Software Incarnation. This device may be an EB600EM, but who known, it could be a 64MB EB001

Hi

Hi everyone, its is a netrionix product. There are only 2 suppliers in the world. However, there is customised user interface designed only for italica which makes it lightest, easiest and fastest.

Failure. The screen show the Netronix software for Netronix device that have a touchscreen

cf: http://www.netronixinc.com/product_e-book.htm

For EB600 Cookie, EB600 Grace, EB600 Swiftie and EB900.
