Как и все предыдущие модели, Bookeen является рекордсменом по длительности автономной работы без предварительных условий и оговорок.
Nolim: like a book, but better!
Carrefour is a retail giant with more than 11,900 stores worldwide, and now it is moving into the e‑reader market with the Nolim. The new Nolim e-reader slides into your pocket so you can always read on the go; just like a book, it can handle being dropped, and just like a book, it doesn’t tire your eyes after hours of avid reading.
But Bookeen wanted it to be more than just a book. They wanted us to be able to buy our next book in a single click, wherever we are. They wanted us to be able to read at night, without switching on the light. They wanted us to be able to take our favorite books wherever we go. Because life needs more than just a book.
Bookeen, the e-reader specialist, and Nolim, Carrefour’s digital culture brand, are very proud to announce the launch of an e-reader that redefines the category, a category that Bookeen helped to create over 10 years ago.
Losing yourself in a book is an intimate, private moment where emotion is paramount. With this in mind, the designers sought inspiration in the feelings that reading provokes, and tried to build them into the product. And so, this new kind of book gradually took shape. With the Nolim e-reader, the size format, style, ergonomics, and tactile feel combine for the user’s genuine reading pleasure.
The Nolim e-reader is not a piece of technology; it’s a new kind of book. The designers behind the Nolim wanted to assert this vision of the e-reader by incorporating the cover into a single item that is both elegant and practical. Just as when you settle down to read you first open the book, the Nolim is turned on and off by opening its cover.
A key aspect of its design is its silicone casing. Selected to ensure that the Nolim really was a robust and easily transportable object that could withstand everyday use, the casing provides the same soft sensation as paper.
The Nolim reader is built around a page of electronic ink which is very comfortable for the eyes, and offers a whole host of possibilities which traditional books do not. With its built-in Wi-Fi, the Nolim has direct access to a library of more than 260,000 titles which can be downloaded in less than a minute. It also features an incredibly soft transparent self-lighting screen which lets you keep reading when you turn the lights off, without tiring out your eyes.
Lastly, Bookeen and Nolim wanted the e-reader to come in different colors, so readers can choose from a selection of five: turquoise, red, orange, anthracite, and light grey.
In the beginning…
In 2016, Bookeen and Nolim decided to put forward their personal vision for a reinvented e-reader. A simple idea soon took shape: an e-reader that would first and foremost be a book… but better
The people behind the Nolim
“A book is a window through which you escape.” Julien Green
Bookeen is an e-reader pioneer. It develops dedicated and end-to-end reading ecosystems: e-readers, digital libraries, content platforms, reading apps for Android and iOS… The talented and passionate people at Bookeen work to create products and services that hundreds of thousands of people in tens of countries use every day, helping to spread culture and knowledge around the world. Michael Dahan (President and founder of Bookeen), has this to say: “We were able to bring all of our 13 years of experience to bear on this project. Beneath its fresh design and apparent simplicity, the Nolim e-reader is bursting with features. Features which give the Nolim an accomplished finish”.
Bookeen has been working on the Nolim since 2013, in cooperation with a range of partners, including Carrefour. These first three years have enabled the Nolim to form a community of loyal, active users. The initiative received a warm welcome from the publishing industry, which makes Nolim one of the most dynamic digital libraries on the segment. The use of an exclusive new design is a clear expression of the Nolim team’s desire to maintain and consolidate its development strategy for access to culture in digital formats. Emmanuel Rochedix, Director of Culture at Carrefour, adds that, “The new Nolim e-reader was designed to incorporate the brand’s fundamentals: accessibility, ease of use, and mobility. Our goal was to offer readers a product fit for everyday life. And our goal has been achieved: the design and build quality is plain to see from the very first moment you hold the new Nolim e-reader in your hands.”
