Remember the Nolim, that unremarkable 6″ ereader Bookeen launched in May?
It looks like Bookeen has relaunched it as the Saga. Bookeen is using stomach-turning amount of hype to pitch this as a revolutionary ereader.
Bear in mind, this is the exact same hardware they launched in May.
The new e-reader SAGA developed by Bookeen takes the reader on a whole new reading experience and adventure. It took 14 months of R&D for Bookeen to develop not just a digital reader, but a new kind of book, where the size format, style, ergonomics, and tactile feel combine for the user’s genuine reading pleasure.
Bookeeen has secured several retail partners in Europe, including in Switzerland (Payot), Finland (Elisa), Germany (Zadig), and Sweden (Adlibris). The Saga is not yet listed on their websites, but Lesen.net says that it will ship later this year and cost 130 euros.
