We first announced the existence of the new Jetbook Mini back in July and displayed some leaked pictures. Today Ectaco announced that they were offering their new Jetbook Mini E-Reader for $99 via their website.
The Jetbook mini has a 5 inch TFT screen and it runs on batteries! You will need 4 AAA batteries and will provide about 90 hours of constant use. They are billing this little e-reader as “The Lightest E-Reader to Date” at around 5.8 ounces. If you want to increase the amount of onboard memory you can upgrade to a max of 2 GB SD Card. As for ebook formats they claim support for LIT, MOBI, EPUB, HTML, PRC, RTF, PDB, PDF via Calibre conversion to TXT and FB2.
