What Is This???

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...6&blockType=G6

Just checking the local Sears stores to see if there was a Jetbook or Libre I could touch and this popped up.

Something old or something new?

According to the part number, that's a normal Jetbook. Photo is wrong.

Edit-- going by what text I could make out on the device in the photo, I was able to google up what it actually is:

Okay, I want it. Not 500 bucks want it, but I want it.

Can't imagine holding that comfortably to read from.

Now, the GPS sounds like a fascinating feature for an e-readrer....

From the OP's article:

"e-books downloads are always less expensive than the same books on paper"



Don't we all wish?

But it does look interesting.

Well in theory they are correct, e-book downloads are always less expensive, it only is an issue with "purchased e-book downloads".

The Sears text refers to the standard Jetbook ebook Reader.
The Photo belongs to a very sophisticated translation dictionary with a scan wand:

Quote:
Unsurpassed Translation

With a massive 455,000 entry English <-> Japanese Translating Dictionary, an easy to use 39 language translating Picture Dictionary and a complete English explanatory dictionary, the remarkable new EJ900 Deluxe contains everything you need for superior translation and accurate communication. Exclusive User Dictionaries allow you to store your own personalized lists of frequently used words and a history function remembers your most recent translations to provide instant access to the information you need to understand and be understood.

Scan and Read Translation

Using the included Ectaco/C-pen Handheld Scanner you can grab any text wherever you find it. Simply scan the text you want from any paper surface - a book, newspaper, doctor's prescriptions or a poster on the wall and you will see the scanned text on the screen. You will then be able to upload it to ECTACO translator in order to get an instant translation of individual words. In addition, with the help of the included mini-USB to USB adapter and ECTACO software (sold separately) you can use the Ectaco/C-Pen to import image data to your desktop or laptop PC as well.
Really cool.
But as pointed out, pricey at US$524.

Edit: Here's a link for the manual in case anybody is actually intrigued:
