Initial release of the Digital Book System reader unit. This device contained no onboard content. At least one DBS card had to be installed for proper use.
The Digital Book System (DBS) was a precursor product to the Bookman first sold to the public in 1992. There were two hardware revisions of this product line and the devices were heavily marketed towards medical professionals. The last product bundle from this line was released in 1995 by which time the Bookman system was to supercede it as Franklin's cartridge-based ebook reader.
