like all previous implementations of this technology, these non-back-lit reflective LCDs are simply less reflective than e-ink. More light reflects off the protective surface instead of making it to the text to reflect back to the viewer.

In the video, the shadow of the camera man reflecting off the reflective LCD is very apparent while it is absent on the e-ink screen. Evident darkening as the camera man moves closer to the screen can be seen with the LCD, while e-ink screen remains very uniformly well lit.

Does anyone know if it plays MP3 files too? I see it does audio books but I am more interested in music whilst I read.
jetBook has MP3 player but jetBook-Lite has no player and no headphones jack.

yes, jetBook has higher sharper contrast and when you read books you can setup the optimal angle.
