Papyre 630 eBook Reader Now Shipping in Spain

01b62b39-d825-45db-b634-69d1fc2e4d85[1]The US market may be in the middle of its annual Spring/Summer drought of ereader launches, but Europe is luckier. A new ebook reader shipped in Spain earlier this month, and it is currently thrilling reviewers there.The Papyre 630 ebook reader is available on Amazon.es and Rakuten.es, with a retail of 117 euros.

This device is equipped with a 6"Pearl HD E-ink screen with a resolution of  1024 x 758, a touchscreen, and a frontlight. It's running Linux on a 600 MHz RockChip RK2818 CPU with 4GB Flash storage, a microSD card slot, and Wifi. Weighing in at 210 grams, the Papyre 630 measures 17cm by 11cm by 9.5cm.

The Papyre 630 supports a broad selection of ebook formats, including Epub, FB2, PDF, and more. I don't see a mention of audio support or support for office docs.

It looks to me like this device was developed by a certain Chinese company. It's being sold in Spain by Grammata, a local ebook retailer which also sells ebook readers and tablets in 4 countries (according to the website: Spain, Mexico, Argentina, and Columbia). Grammata boasts 50,000 titles in their ebookstore, putting them far behind Nook, Kindle, and Baja Libros.

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."
