Cybook Opus Review – Bookeen’s 5″ eBook Reader
This could be due to the support for DRM protected e-books, which probably require third party libraries. June Bookeen published a much improved firmware. As it lacks a keyboard, it does not have dictionary support, annotations and bookmarks. It also does not have Wi-Fi access, text-to-speech support nor the possibility of listening to music while reading. Opuus is meant only for reading, like a physical book. The main concern was to make it small and lightweight, so that one can read for hours without discomfort.
It uses open formats and standards so it would not lock the user into one company’s products in future. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
