Bookeen Cybook Orizon clears the FCC

Bookeen's new ereader, the Cybook Orizon, cleared the FCC today. It's based on a 6" Sipix screen, and it has Wifi, Bluetooth, 2GB Flash, a microSD card slot as well as a web browser and support for Adobe DE DRM.

At this point you should be feeling somewhat confused. Bookeen have been shipping the Orizon to the US for about a month now, even though they didn't have certification. Basically it was illegal to import them (I think).

I have a review unit (finally). It's on my To-Do pile, and I'll get to it when I can.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
