We were promised a color-loving version of the diminutive Cybook Opus and here’s the delivery of said pledge. Coming in seven new shades to match its May 7 release date, the newly revised Cybook Opus boasts instant-on functionality, a new Boo Reader software that helps to optimize battery life, and a category-best 12 font sizes. It’s still a monochrome E Ink display — 800 x 600 pixels — and memory hasn’t budged up from the 1GB on its predecessor, but at least the opening price has dipped down to a £149 ($199 in USA) RRP. When you consider 150 books come preloaded on the device, it’s almost like Bookeen is giving the hardware away for free. It’s not, but that’s as good a rationalization as any other. Full PR after the break.
