My Jetbook color has arrived

I've only had it for a couple hours t this point but I'm not happy. The screen is so gray that I plan to call it Dorian.

LuBiB has a pretty good summary elsewhere of the menus, features, and so on, so I won't repeat his work.

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.

Hi, Nate the great!

Thank you for sharing your experience! It's a great help!

When you say that it does have the annotation options, do you mean scribble and notes or even highlighting?

And the classic question about JBC - does it feel like an 880x600 or more like 1600x1200? Or somewhere in between?
I guess the most important is whether it is comparable with a book's quality...

Look forward to your reply

That goes for Android tablets as well, but they are not E-Ink ...

The front of the box shows all of that but I cannot do it.

See http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...0&postcount=42

It seems a close resemblance to 1600x1200 but not quite.
Resolution quality seems better than the ipad, though a bit in a different way (I explained some of this in this thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=167778)
