Cybook Ocean 8″ eBook Reader Caught on Film

Bookeen's Bookeen Cybook Oceanmuch delayed ereader was on display at the Salon du Livre (a book fair in Paris) this week, and a French gadget blog called Les Numériques got to play with it for a few minutes.The Cybook Ocean has an impressively large 8" screen (1024 x 768 resolution), and it's running Bookeen's proprietary reading app on an 800MHz CPU with 256MB RAM. As you can see in the video below, this ereader has a touchscreen, frontlight and is reasonably responsive.

It's expected to ship in May or June of this year, with a retail of 179 euros. That's a fairly steep price, IMO, and I think that a similarly priced tablet will offer a better value.

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."
