DMC Copia E-reader

DMC plans to unleash [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/article/186457/dmc_copia_ereaders_have_something_for_everyone.html|a bevy of e-reader options|DMC Copia E-Readers Have Something For Everyone]] on the world by June. With six models across two lines—Ocean and Tidal—the DMC Copia e-readers cover a range of options from 3G to Wi-Fi, with keyboard, without, and of course, large screen versus pocket. In talking with Copia, I was impressed by the company’s commitment to the nascent e-reader market—that’s underscored by the company’s ambitious plans to launch six different models, ranging in price from US$199 to $299, and in so doing, acknowledging that among e-readers, consumers will want choice, and that one size will not fit all, literally--there will be different things that excite different users.

More notable, though, is the company’s holistic approach to its e-readers. While the readers stayed under glass and couldn’t be touched at CES, the designs looked promising. And the readers are complemented by Copia.com, an e-commerce and social networking driven site that will launch as the bookstore community for the Copia e-readers.
