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 and, 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.

      The description said Linux, so probably not.
