New ebook reader
Cybook e-book reader.
Comes with a number of readers, including MobiPocket (yes, it can read DRM books) and uBook. It also comes with Internet Explorer, PocketWord, AudioPlayer, PTab Spreadsheet and email (yes, you can edit your Excel and Word files). No PIM stuff so you still have to carry your PDA. Display "bright and contrasted 10" color LCD display". Size 8" x 10.1" x 1" (204 x 258 x 27 mm). 32Mb RAM. 66MHz Motorola CPU. PCMCIA slot. Battery autonomy 3-5 hours. Price £495.14 (ugh!).
Hmmm, interesting, but very pricey! The battery could last a bit longer. I look forward to see a review describing the display quality and the speed (fast enough to run MS Reader conveniently? I doubt it). Hopefully a future version will have eInk display.
