As you can see, the Ocean has a blocky design that is almost as angular as the new Kindle Fire HDX. It has a matte black and a glossy front.
The Cybook Ocean has Wifi, a touchscreen, and an on-device ebookstore. It's expected to ship next month with a retail of 160 euros.
As I noted when I covered the Cybook Ocean last month, that 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. The Cybook Ocean is also priced about 10 euros less than the Kobo Aura HD in Europe. Given that the Aura HD's 6.8" screen boasts a significantly higher resolution the extra cost could be worthwhile.
