Details are still limited on the Cybook Ocean, but I do know that it has an 8" screen with both a touchscreen and a resolution of 1024x768. My source indicates that this is not an E-ink screen at all, and that suggests that the Cybook Ocean is using a screen from Ganzhou OED technologies.
A similar 8" screen is being used on the Pyrus Maxi, teXet TB-138, and the Icarus 8. I don't have any performance details yet, but I can see from the E-ink website that 8" is not a screen size that E-ink has on hand for sale.
The Cybook Odyssey Ocean will have 4GB Flash storage, Wifi, a touchscreen, and a frontlight. It is expected to ship in November with a retail around 160 euros, and weigh 295 grams.
That retail price is 20 to 30 euros more than the competing 8" models on the European market, neither of which have a frontlight or a touchscreen.
In other news, Bookeen is also going to launch a cheaper version of the Cybook Odyssey. This ereader will have 4GB of storage, not 2GB, and it will have a touchscreen and an improved frontlight. But it won't have the HD- E-ink screen on the current Odyssey. It's also projected to cost 99 euros.
