Maybe they send updates according to the data of purchase

This sounds like a Jewish telegram: "Start worrying. Details to follow in a letter."

Can anyone tell me how the stylus works?
Is it just a magnet on a stick, a stick with batteries in, does it have a tip that retracts as you press it against the screen? Does it leave scratches on the screen as you write something?

Yeah come on LuBiB, you seem to be the only person in the world who's got it so far. Just a quick photo of scribbles would do for now.

I think LuBiB is an Ectaco undercover agent and there is no new firmware yet

I will call to Ectaco on Monday to check the date when new firmware will be available.
Do you really think Ectaco people read this forum?

Maybe they do, but it's not going to make that company any better.

I have the impression that they do,and so far I think it does make them better (like for instance their change in attitude towards the white only jetbook. Now they're more open minded for a darker one, due to the background being portrayed much darker because of the contrast with the white frame.

One of the fruits of our conversations!

Hello folks!

As far as i understood this conversations, there is only one JBC user here posting about the device?
Here is another one!

I just want to provide you with infos, i think i haven´t read here.

I own the device for nearly 3 weeks.
One of the first things i noticed was, that the screen is not "deleted" every page turn.
(you see parts of the last page in light grey). It seems to me that the page gets fully
refreshed only every (4?) page turns.
Maybe this should be a speed up.

Before i bought the device i emailed with ectaco.
(Asking about the features, possibilities i cant find clearly described).
At the first tryout I was disappointed,because there wasn't a browser installed.
And there was no feature to install or deinstall device-software.
Because they wrote:

Quote:
It will be possible to uninstall software even though you may never know when you’ll need to come across it J

We are working on having the highlighting feature available to most formats, but that info will only be available in about 2 weeks.

The browser being used is Opera as it’s fast and we have plans for adding some amazing features using them.

Regarding the volume of these devices, i got also an info from ectaco:
Quote:
The jetbook Color just began shipping this week and we oversold 6x the anticipated pre-order amount.
and the next email(I asked for shipping via germany, because of taxes):
Quote:
Shipping will either be from Germany or the US depending on availability. I know we sent 200 units to Germany and they were all gone because of the pre-orders in that area.
If i understood these right, they have sold 1200 to this area (germany)?


I haven´t received the firmware update yet.

cheers
