DMC Worldwide has released a set of e-readers and related accessories under the name COPIA. The COPIA readers, which will be sold under the brand names OCEAN and TIDAL, include both monochrome e-paper-based touchscreens and panels with Wi-Fi or 3G wireless connectivity, as well as rich content-oriented color e-readers.
COPIA products connect automatically to TheCopia.com, a device-agnostic site that offers an ebook marketplace with social networking capabilities. TheCopia.com begins its private beta this month, with public beta coming in March. The three OCEAN and three TIDAL e-readers will be available for online purchase in April and at retail in June, with MSRPs ranging from $199 to $299.
