Neat to see color eink on the way. But in the age of tablets, I don't think DX priced eink devices can escape a very small niche.

Definitely too much for me, but for all those people that dream of color eink, now they can get it!

wow, looks pretty awesome.

i dont see anyone else using color eink, so it'll be interesting to see the response on it

i cant read on the ipad bc of the backlit screen so this as an alternative would be amazing

still reading my jetbook every night though

Yes, thanks, I used the blog and the link to the jetBook site to build a new page in the wiki. If anyone finds more about the specs please update the page.

on http://www.jetbookk12.com/jetbookcolor/ page the info:
The 9.68" PVI EPD screen with a display resolution of 1600 (H) * 1200 (W) is exceptionally crisp, clear, and fast.

on wiki page:
Screen: 9.7" E Ink Triton 800 x 600 color pixel touchscreen, 100 ppi (200dpi)

Is it 1600x1200 or 800x600?

It is 1600 x 1200 dpi and 800 x 600 ppi. A pixel is made up of 4 dots in a 2x2 array. There is 1 dot for each color and a clear dot that can be used to brighten or darken the color. JetBook is a bit misleading here. Follow the link on the wiki to the display technology page to read about this.

By the way there are subpixel sampling techniques that can improve the apparent resolution using the dots.
