Pocketbook Color Launched in Europe – 6″ Color E-ink Screen, 199 Euros
On Monday Pocketbook announced the Pocketbook Color, or PB 633. This ereader sports a 6″ color E-ink screen capable of displaying either grayscale (at 300 ppi) or color (at 100 ppi).
The Pocketbook Color uses one of E-ink’s new Kaleido screens to display up to 4096 colors while preserving all the unique properties of E-ink tech.
And thanks to the frontlight, you will be able to see all those colors while reading in the dark. Moreover, users can adjust color settings of each specific book, easily changing parameters such as contrast, brightness, gamma correction, and saturation.
Equipped with both Wifi and Bluetooth, the Pocketbook Color supports six popular audio formats as well as 23 other files formats, including Mobi and Epub. It has 16GB to fill with ebooks before you’ll need to add a microSD card (up to 32GB supported).
Weighing in at 160 grams, the Pocketbook Color measures only 8mm thin.
It ships at the end of the month, with a retail of 199 euros. (My unit is arriving on Thursday.)
