E-book readers tend to be the sizes hardcover books – or a lot larger. That might be all well and good if you’re laying in bed, but the Bookeen Opus is about the size of a paperback, which makes it truely portable. The folks folks over at MobileRead got their hands on the small, but impressive, Opus for a sneak peak.
To sum it up, the Opus is somewhat small with a 5-inch 600×800 screen along with 1GB of internal memory. The small size might not be for everyone, but there is probably a market for such a device. Plus it supports ePUB and PDF files and even allows for organization via folders. There wasn’t any mention of pricing or availability just yet though. Any potential takers?
