You have absolutely 0 credibility in reviewing this device - not to be mean, but srsly.
  1. I didn't write any review as I clearly stated. If you think that one cannot make any idea of e-eink devices by seeing pics and reading reports, I don't understand -for example-: why did you spend your time for taking a lot of pictures of it? I compare what I see and read with my experience and knowledge about readers, which MAY be deeper than yours.
  2. You may want to answer to these owners', then:

    But I will note that the software is not anywhere near being done. It doesn't have the annotation options I would have expected with a textbook platform. I also cannot find the web browser or a way to enable Wifi. (I don't think they work yet.)

    And I can definitely say that as a textbook platform the iPad offers more options for the same price.

    2. The current Jetbook screen most closely resembles the original (non-Perl) DX screen in terms of the "muddiness" of the white spaces and the lack of crispness/clarity of the text - in any font choice.
    ...
    3. In any but the brightest lighting, ghosting is extremely visible and annoying.

    1)I know the Jetbook is twice the screen size but the Sony is so much faster; about twice as fast to turn pages.
    2) The screen is grey almost a cement green like colour. The Sony screen is much lighter, so reading the Jetbbook is more like black text on grey/green compared to black on almost white. This makes reading in poor light a strain

    The problem overall with the device is that it’s very much incomplete

    The speed and color issues are minor comparative to the other issues.
    And there's this question unanswered:

Oh yes, I will spend 500 dollars to test a unit that 99,9% I'd return. Sharing knowledge and discuss information is what forums are about. If you are not ok with this, it's your problem.
