JBC now sold on amazon!

http://www.amazon.com/Ectaco-JetBook-Color-eBook-Reader/dp/B00756YMGU

It's sold for 627.75; makes my trade in of my old jetbook, for $400 a good deal!

I really liked the review "H B" wrote (Hmm... he got his with the trade-in deal, just
like you and he seems to be from south Florida, as well, just saying).

"H B's" review of the JBL was fair, even if (in my opinion) he discounted the value
of some of it's unique features and (like most reviews) left out it's support for the
.pdb ebook format and the three forms of DRM it can deal with. ("H B" also likes
your Astak Ez Reader Pro, coincidence?)

Luck;
Ken

I couldn't resist uploading a more representative photo of the jetBook Color to the product listing. I think it's bordering on dishonest using a rendered product image, especially for this device.

Very coincidential indeed!
Especially seeing that the review appeared when I posted it on mobileread, eventhough the item might have been for sale for many months already ;-)

I just love reviewing amazon stuff!

Agree,
But I belive no one photo can render justice to something like Triton (because it is paragonable to nothing).
I hope one day people can experienced it form live seeing and trying it directly in common store.

There is another seller on Amazon selling it for MSRP. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...n=&s=&v=glance

It has 3.5/5 reviews which isn't bad especially since it appears they are really targeting schools and students with it.

The seller's image is misleading. It looks like the colors are bright and vibrant which they aren't.
