Ummm.... Jon, are you being deliberately obtuse? Whether ereader or eReader, the chances are excellent his reference is to the hardware and not an obsolete format (pdb) used on Palm devices.

Best Buy, Staple and PC Magazine would differ with you along with multiple other sources. Perhaps the influence of Apple's iPod, iPhone, iPad, Roomba's iRobot and multiple other products that use that same lower case first letter in a product name? I've also seen E-Reader and e-Reader.

You've got no standing too comment on mispeeling changing meaning.

The problem is that I still have a Jetbook Color 2 from ... a decade ago? And I'm not sure that the newer Kaleido panels are an improvement. The screen sizes are smaller, DPI is identical, I can clearly see the same screendoor effect even on video reviews, and comments here mention that the "whites" are very grey and contrast is disappointing. Would really like to see a comparison, but I guess it's going to be a disappointment.

... Anyone knows where to find battery replacements for the Jetbook Color 2 ?

Apparently the triton screen was very grey.

This might be the right one...

https://www.batterydepot.com/pr-0015...specifications

Or on Amazon...

https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Ultr.../dp/B076P86NKT

It looks like the one this site says fits the JetBook Color (which may or may not be the same size as the JetBook Color 2).

https://e-ink-reader.ru/battery_info_en.php?dev_id=110

Not positive the PRB-3 and the CS-AEJ001SL are the same battery, but they look a lot alike.

And this is the result Google returned when I did a search for "Jetbook Color 2 replacment battery" — so it looks hopeful.

Apparently you still buy these things new for only $500.

Don't worry on my account. I was just surprised that a 2012 e-Reader was still selling for $500 new.

Yes, please don't. Software is utterly crap. I was just half-joking.

However it's disappointing how gray Kaleido is even after one decade of improvements. I am not even sure it's any whiter than Triton. I'm not going to be expecting Kaleido 3 to be any better, at this rate...

There's also something curious. Apparently Kaleido panel has 300DPI for blacks while Triton had only 200DPI. However both claim 100DPI for color. I guess the subpixel arrangement has changed somehow.

In my opinion the "screendoor" effect makes black text very fuzzy anyway.

I actually didn't think the software was too bad. It was slow and clunky but once you're reading a document as long as the pages turn reasonably quickly the speed doesn't matter so much. It was the screen that was awful for me - really dull, dark grey background with muddy colours. You needed to blast it with a spotlight and then it looked pretty good but not terribly practical for reading.

Now they have a built in spotlight.
