Ectaco Jetbook now (officially) supports Adobe DRM

Various versions of the firmware have been up for a few weeks now, and today Ectaco decided to make it official. From the press release:

ECTACO Inc., a New York based company best known for their jetBook budget eBook readers, hand-held electronic translators, and translating software has announced that the jetBook and jetBook LITE will now support Adobe DRM protected formats and 4 new languages. The jetBook is most known for being the strongest price competitor to the Kindle and Nook and stays steady as the leader in entry level eReaders.

The Jetbook (and Jetbook Lite) are based on hardware designed by Dr. Yi, a Chinese ereader company. I  have one, actually. It is decent hardware, and now it has the software to go with it.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
