If you’ve been looking for a different eBook reader to try, then you might be interested in the Cybook Opus from Bookeen. This pocket sized reader can be held in one hand and fits perfectly in any purse, briefcase or pocket. It is the lightest on the market – only 5.3 ounces! But in spite of its tiny size, this eBook reader has a large [1GB] of internal storage memory [and a microSD card slot] that can store over 1,000 books and can accommodate ePub, PDF, HTML, and text formats.With Opus, you can access more than 200,000 digital contemporary books from hundreds of publisher sources such as Random House, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, and Harlequin. And though pocket-sized, the Opus features a pretty standard 5-inch display. It boasts an impressive 200dpi ePaper screen which provides a paperlike high contrast appearance and ultra-low power consumption on the revolutionary EInk Technology. Yes, it has a battery life good for more than 8,000 page flips and 21 days of stand-by.
In addition, users have the option of 12 display fonts as well as four grayscale levels. And with its accelerometer – screen position can switch from portrait to landscape mode automatically. The only drawback is – there’s no Wi-Fi or 3G data connection. But doing away with that feature is sure to save big on cost.
