BeBook Two to be released on the 14th Oct at Frankfurter Buchmesse

by Ebook Doctor on October 13, 2009


Thats right folks the long awaited update to the Bebook One is finaly going to be released on the 14th of October 2009 during the Frankfurter Buchmesse (Frankfurt Book Fair).

If you happen to be in the area, you can find the BeBook booth at hall 4.2, booth 450.

If you have been holding off from buying an Ebook Reader, now is the time – With great offerings from the likes  of Bebook, Sony, Amazon, Cybook, and Irex you are spoilt for choice.

We haven’t managed to get our hands on a Bebook 2 yet, but from the information provided by the guys behind Bebook it sounds like a really good candidate for the top ebook reader slot in Europe.

So far, the specs include:

  • Wireless connectivity (3G and WIFI)
  • Touchscreen
  • Purchase from the ebook reader with selected ebook partners using 3G or Wifi
  • Free Wireless RSS support (unlike the Amazon Kindle which charges per feed, per month)

We’ll update you as more details come in.

Update: No sign of a release I’m afraid 🙁 Sounds like the BeBook team is busy with the post Bookfair work.

Although this date was provided by ByBook/Endless Ideas in a Dutch TV show a few weeks ago, it looks like they have delayed the launch…

We have found this interesting interview from the Book Fair, and their representative talks about launching in the next months. The interesting thing to note is that they mention different launch scenarios: Selling the ebook reader direct without a sim, selling the ebook reader with a sim card and contract, or selling the ebook reader with a subsidised 3g contract paid by the prefered ebook seller.  I would imagine this could complicate things massively, and could be the reason for the delay. Check out the interview below:

Well what happened? No BeBook 2 released? Any news?

So? Was it released? If not, you should write that your information was wrong!

Thats strange, I was expecting this release too. Check out this forum thread on the Bebook site:

Endless Ideas had announced the date on live tv, but haven’t delivered – Not good!
