Made popular by Nook and Kindle, colorful ebook reader trend is at its highest right now. We have seen how cool a Kindle Fire is, but that device is no longer the coolest guy in the block. A lot of alternative have been provided, such as Nook with their Nook color, and this color e-reader Jetbook from Ectaco.
This is the new color ebook reader Jetbook that has an excellent dictionary installed inside, including some educational software for student. According to the specs, there are 38 languages dictionary, cross translator for 180 language, vocabulary builder, scientific calculator, periodic table, and more stuffs that you can eat as a student or even for the passionate learner.
On the specification side, This Jetbook Color e-Reader is coming with a slow 800Mhz Freescale processor, big 9.7-inch display with 1600 x 1200px resolution, a rechargeable battery with up to 10,000 page turns on a single charge, capable of connecting to WiFi network and support up to 32GB of microSD card.
For a student, this Jetbook is like a God sent, however, the price is not as friendly as it look. Jetbook is going to cost you $499.95, which make me “woops” all the way. Will such price ever survive the hard war? It’s interesting to see how’s their sales record next year. Oh, this tablet is going to hit the market on next year January 15th, 2012.
