ECTACO has revolutionized the way you read with the JetBook eBook reader! At just 7.5 ounces and with dimensions smaller than a standard hardcover novel, the JetBook lets you carry a stack of books in the palm of your hand and read them wherever you want. It comes preloaded with the CIA World Factbook and a German Dictionary, and can hold thousands more texts with support for an optional SD memory card up to 32GB in size. With its USB mass storage capability, simply connect the JetBook to your PC via USB and drag and drop new content; you can also back up what you already have on the device instantly. The battery is charged via the included power supply or USB, and once charged can provide you over 20 hours of continuous active use, so you will always be ready to read.

Sporting a reflective, long lasting coating, the huge 5-inch VGA screen is easy on the eyes under various lighting conditions (including direct sunlight) and won’t get dirty even after extended use. With screen rotation support, you can always read your eBooks in the most comfortable and suitable manner. Even readers who have difficulty seeing print books will have no trouble with this reader's adjustable text size and font face.

An MP3 player rounds out the advanced features, so you can listen to your favorite music as you read.
