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.
