Actually, it's an M218B that's been given the Ectaco brand of Jetbook. It *is* and ebook reader but it is *NOT* an e-ink reader. It uses standard 5.x" VGA grayscale displays not the e-ink EPD display technology.

The second item on that page is a Franklin "e-bookman". It is an e-reader that will read mobi-pocket files, but like the Ectacto it is NOT an e-ink reader. These are actually quite a few years old. I believe the version the latest version of mobi-pocket that works on them is 4.2.

I had (actually still have) one of these. It's now sitting in a desk drawer gathering dust. Haven't used it in a couple years at least. I did use mine a bit when I first got it, but actually found reading on my Sony Clie (Palm PDA) much better than reading on the e-bookman.
