Excerpt: When we heard that Bookeen was releasing a new version of their Cybook Opus eReader, this time calling it the Cybook Opus Color , we were a little giddy. What color screen technology will they be using, we pondered?
Summary: Yes, the Bookeen Cybook Opus is definitely a good entry level eReader for people who want to get to know the eBook reader market or for those who value portability above all. It’s small; it’s intuitive; it gets the job done.
Pros: The most portable device to date, Supports a good variety of file formats, Lots of font sizes to choose from (which is extremely important on a small eReader)
Cons: Has only basic eReader functions (no wireless, dictionary, annotation capability), A bit high-priced compared to its direct competitor (the Sony PRS-300 Pocket Edition), Not a strong brand, combined with customer support complaints, smells like trouble
Excerpt: Bookeen’s latest iteration of its Cybook Opus puts a little spit and polish on the original, which was one of the skinniest and lightest e-readers available. At 150g, the new Cybook Opus retains the featherweight crown, but the €167.22 price remains steeper than most.
Pros: Sleek and snappy-performing e-reader; light weight makes for easy one-handed operation
Cons: No music player or dictionary; pricey; no Wi-Fi; must hook up to PC to get content; no integrated bookstore
