The videos are short and don't show much, but I'm posting them because you really need to see them. I've never seen this level of animation on a commercially available ebook reader with an E-ink screen. v
First up is a demo of the GUI. The Odyssey is so fast that Bookeen actually animated the menu system. That's a first for E-ink screens.
And then there's the boot animation. It's so fast and smooth that any jerkyness you see is more likely to be caused by playback issues.
