Jetbook has followed up with their new Jetbook Mini from their original Jetbook e-Reader and adds a splash of vibrant colors to the e-reader segment that otherwise was beginning to look boring with just shades of black and white. The only exception might be that of the Sony e-readers that comes in different shades.
The colors being talked about is however the color of the e-readers themselves and not of their display. For the jetBook mini e-book reader too has a black and white display that’s made out of 5 inch of reflective TFT screen. While the display is surprisingly crisp and sharp, page turn speeds too are thoroughly impressive. What’s more, the jetBook mini e-book reader also boasts of multiple language support as well as portability. The e-reader was only recently launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair and Consumer Electronics Show held in Hong Kong.
The jetBook mini gets its juice from a quartet of AAA Energizer batteries that, as per its makers can pump out enough to ensure 90 hours of a continuous hassle free reading experience. The jetBook mini also has a unique aspect to it, with a weight of a meager 5.7 ounces, it can well be the light e-reader around in the world right now. And if you think that’s all that the jetBook mini can boast of, well the e-reader’s price too lives up to the e-reader’s nomenclature. For the e-reader can be yours for just $99.
In the end, the jetBook mini might not be a Kindle destroyer but it does come as a viable proposition to those who like things colorful, light, cheap and easy.
Also, this however shouldn’t come as a surprise to regular readers here as all of what was going on at the Ectaco camp did find mention here. Keep watching for more from the world of tablets, slates and e-reader.
