Using the latest technology and the world's first Triton Color E Ink screen the jetBook Color was originally focused on the education market for students to keep track of their schedules, check homework, and eventually replace all paper textbooks. With the success experienced in Eastern Europe, we've decided to release the jetBook Color worldwide so everyone can enjoy an eReading device with tons of functionality and a non-backlit display that's safe on the eyes. Virtually unlimited format support and endless battery life make the jetBook Color the best device for school work, business documents, leisure reading and everything in between.

This review is from: ECTACO jetBook Color Black
Pros: --Color Screen
Other Thoughts: I use this device mainly for reading scientific papers and journals. As a graduate student, some of my journal subscriptions are electronic only, and I tend to print off about a 400-500 pages a month in reading. I get migraines from looking a computers too long, so I wanted a reader that was passive (and that I could take outside). Some of the articles and journals have color figures, so I wanted a device that had color-- jetbook color is the only thing that fits that bill right now (Dec. 2012).
