DMC plans to unleash a bevy of e-reader options 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 $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.
