Thanks for taking the time to put all this together. I have found this and many of your other Jetbook posts very helpful. I'm trying to decide on going with this or waiting for the 5 inch Astak, but leaning for the Jetbook as I'm going on vacation for a week at the end of the month.

Good job! I enjoy looking at the reviews, sometimes I discover features that I have missed so far.

Yes, Bob. You published a nice in-depth review and as I remember it was the first jetBook review. I just added it to the list.

I just found this article
http://www.articlesbase.com/electron...w-1407576.html

It's talking about 4 ebook reading devices, ECTACO JetBook being one of them.
Quote:
JetBook by ECTACO - The JetBook reader is a popular mobile library for compelling reasons such as multilanguage ebook support, translating feature, easy navigation, auto page turning, MP3 music and unlimited e-library. It has the feature of storing a mammoth collection of books and is expandable through memory cards. This is a portable gadget in a palm fitting size, weighing only 7,5 ounces, and the VGA screen allows reading easily even in low lit areas. Being a mobile library, the translating dictionaries makes uninterrupted reading easy, besides the JetBook reader comes with a free pre-installed ebooks collection.

The SD card slot facilitates expanding storage up to 2 GB, thereby making the JetBook a significant resource library. The in-built search engine facilitates searching the entire e-library and bookmarking, besides auto page turning. The rechargeable battery offers active use for 20 hours and can be conveniently charged in 4 to 5 hours using AC/DC power or USB. It is priced at U$ 200.

To that I would add the SD card capability has been upped. It can with the new firmware use the much larger SDHC cards. I believe it has support for up to 32 gigs, although I really don't see the need for that much storage. I have over 3,000 titles on my 4 gig card and I'm only using aprox 1/4th of that. Its absolutely amazing to have that much choice of what you want to read on such a small handy device.
