Bookeen Cybook Opus e-reader hits the UK market
The Bookeen Cybook Opus e-reader has officially launched in the UK, adding another e-reader to the market. The Cybook Opus is the company’s fourth e-reader device. Bookeen describes the device as “pocket sized” and “the lightest on the market.” The device includes a 5-inch E Ink screen, 1 GB of memory, SD card slot, and auto-rotate capability. The device does not feature wireless capability so books must be transferred to the device via a USB cable. There is no word yet on if it will be released in the U.S.
