First Look at the Jetbook Color (video)
Hey folks. I’m going to be going to NYC tonight for the Amazon event tomorrow, and that means my posting schedule will likely be erratic. So here’s a video to tide you over until things get back to normal.
The Jetbook Color is a new 9.7″ ebook reader from Ectaco. It’s the first ebook reader to use the new color E-ink screen. It’s not going to hit the US market until December, but when it does the retail will be about $350 ($30 less than the KDX). It has Wifi, SD card slot, stylus equipped touchscreen (similar to Wacom)
. Ectaco are currently developing the Jetbook Color for the Russian, US, and other markets. It’s going to be a digital textbook platform, and in fact that’s how it is being used right now in Russia. I’ve had my hands on it, but that one wasn’t a working model.
