Bookeen has been in the e-reader game in Europe for three years with various offerings such as the Orizon and Opus. The company has been issuing new videos during the last year demonstrating many new technologies. One of the best ones was the seamless web browsing and playing high frame-rate video using e-ink. Today the company announced on its blog that they will be releasing the Cybook Odyssey in Europe in the next few weeks.
The Cybook Odyssey features a six inch e-ink pearl display that is fully touchscreen. It will be running on a 800 MHZ Cortex A8 processor, adding to the enhanced speed of the device.
Bookeen is hyping new technology that it developed to contribute to a better reader experience. It is called HSIS and not much is known other then the company using nonsensical marketing hype.
