I just received email this too. It sounds very interesting! Are there any demonstration videos that show this in action?

Just be careful. Its "holiday" price is $499.

I don't want to see how much it's going to cost after Holidays.

Its 4096 colors.

Here are the detailed specs:

Engadget article:
http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/07/e...-500-ships-in/

According to the article, this device is already on the market in eastern Europe. But where? Which countries? Do they ship internationally?

I think for an e-ink tablet the price is OK. Web-browsing without eye-strain.

It's in Russia and Ukraine, but it's some kind of a school programme-slash-test - they use kids as guinea pigs. I wish their parents did reviews...

On the whole, all this secrecy and lack of any constructive information about JBC makes me more inclined towards buying a Boox M92 or Hanvon E920 (if it's possible to get it)...
