video review: JB Mini vs JBL

Found this video today made by goodereader.com:


At some point the reviewer says "both can handle pictures" whilst only the JBL can do it. Other than that its quite a good video review for those who are wondering what to buy.

They have a messed up slider if it is knocking the battery cover off when they use it.

I like the Mini's form factor, but it gave up too much to lower the power requirements
so far.

Luck;
Ken

Good review. I have both units and I like the form factor of jetBook mini more.
Note that jetBook mini has no dictionaries. NewEgg sell jetBook Lite for $79.99 and jetBook mini for $89.99 now. If you need the support for DRMed books it will be better to buy jetBook Lite. If you don't read DRMed books I recommend jetBook mini.
