The price tag is probably going to be the sticking point for most, more so with some of the features leaving a lot to be desired. However, if you are looking for a touchscreen reader, it is most certainly worth a look, especially since neither of the Sony Readers have Wi-Fi.
The Cybook Orizon, from French company Bookeen, is a handsome e-reader. It has a pearly silver casefront, nicely contoured corners and edges, a very slender frame at only 7.
The back top of the device plays host to the power and reset buttons and a slot for microSD, and on the bottom edge is a micro-USB port for charging and computer connection.
Everything is neatly out of the way and discreetly placed except for the giant Bookeen logo on the front , and easy to keep clean and neat thanks to the included soft case. Unfortunately, the Orizon has a strangely glossy screen. Other e-readers we've tested with touchscreens — the Sony Readers and the BeBook Neo — had lovely, glare-free matte screens. Not only is the glossy screen reflective and harder to read, it also registers each and every fingerprint.
When the glare isn't irritating you, it will be the smudges; and there will be smudges. The Cybook Orizon is loaded up with features. Probably the most notable of these is a capacitive touchscreen, which allows you to tap and swipe to navigate. Certainly the first thing the majority of people do when handed an e-reader for the first time is prod at the screen wondering why it's not responding.
Touchscreens and E Ink are difficult together, though. E Ink is slow to respond even at the best of times, and you might find yourself accidentally poking too many times, thinking your touch hasn't registered, particularly in Wi-Fi mode. Of course, the touchscreen allows you to do things you can't usually do very easily on an e-reader: make notes and highlight text.
It also allows you to exit menus easily, just by tapping anywhere outside the menu box. Unfortunately, it can be a little unintuitive; sometimes you can't quite be sure whether you need to use the nav pad or the touchscreen for a particular command and can poke at the screen without effect before realising you need to actually press a button.
As we just mentioned, the Orizon also has Wi-Fi. The latter four are very useful, but the first was The only books available on the store are in German and French, with no English language titles at all. The Australian distributor has told us that it is looking for an appropriate Australian store to partner with, but, in the meantime, this is what we have. Other bookstores can be accessed through the Google app or via the Orizon's browser, though, so all is not lost.
However, as we said, using the touchscreen in Wi-Fi mode can be a bit slow, so you may find it quicker just to purchase your books on a computer and transfer them across using USB.

The Bookeen Cybook Orizon joins a growing group of ebook readers with built-in Wi-Fi, which allows you to download material without having to hook the device up to a PC. Because pages loaded slowly on the Wi-Fi connection, tapping a book from a search results list for example often produced unintended selections, making the whole experience painfully time-consuming and frustrating. In most other respects, the Orizon was much more satisfactory. Like its pocket-size sibling, the Cybook Opus , the Orizon--available with a black or white plastic case--is thin for its 6-inch screen size and 7. The Orizon weighs about the same as that third-generation Kindle, 8. While most of the dedicated e-readers we've seen use E Ink's electrophoretic displays, the Orizon uses a touchscreen from E Ink competitor Sipix.
