Cybook Ocean Launch

Bookeen is expected to launch its eight inch eReader in North America and Europe this month. Today they have passed the testing process to get official FCC certification needed to launch in the US and Canada.

The Cybook Ocean features an 8 inch touch screen with a 1024 x 758. It is powered by a 1 GHZ processor, 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory which is expandable to 32 GB by way of an SD card.

It also features a built-in front light which is supposedly on par with with the Kindle Paperwhite 2, in terms of overall screen clarity.  There are also physical page turn buttons.

When it available on the market sometime in the next month it will cost around €179 euros. Although this is more expensive than most other mainstream readers such as Kindle or Kobo it does feature a larger eight inch screen as well as featuring a more open modified operating system meaning you aren’t tied into one ecosystem.
