Welcome to another exclusive Good e-Reader Contest! Today, we have a brand new Cybook Odyssey HD with Front-Light and an official red case to protect your e-Reader while you are out of the home!
The Cybook Odyssey HD features a six inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024×758 pixels. It uses the same type of XGA technology found on the Kobo Glo and Kindle Paperwhite. Underneath the hood is an 800 MHZ Texas Instruments Cortex A8 processor and 128 MB of RAM. The hardware is perfectly adequate for an e-reader and navigating the menu and opening books occurs very quickly.
You will have 2 GB of internal storage for all of your ebooks, and you can enhance it further via the Micro SD for up to 32 GB of additional memory. Battery life is also very solid with the 1600 mAh, which will normally provide up to a month of battery life. If you tend not to use the front light very much, you should be able to have it last a little bit longer. One of the ways this device conserves battery life is the automatic disabling of wireless internet access when you leave your reader idle. You can charge it via the accompanied Micro USB cable by plugging it into your computer.
This contest is available to anyone, in any country in the world. We will ship via standard ground shipping, so if you live overseas, be prepared to wait! What do you have to do to enter? Simply comment on this post about your favorite Movie based on a book. You can enter only once, and must have a DISQUS profile, so we can contact you if you win. As soon as we hit 100 comments we will award the e-Reader to one lucky winner! Good luck to everyone!
