Welcome to another exclusive Good e-Reader Video Review! In this edition we take a look at the minimalist Ectaco Jetbook Mini e-Reader.
The Ectaco Jetbook Mini has a 5 inch screen TFT LCD screen, with a resolution of 640×540 and displays 16 levels of greyscale. It can be switched both to landscape and portrait mode with a menu setting, and has an option for left or right handed people. It has built in memory of a paltry 1.4 MB and has a SD card slot to upgrade it to a maximum of 2GB. It runs on 4 AAA batteries, which it comes bundled with when you purchase the e-reader. It will allow you up to 90 hours of reading time before they die, but can last for months in standby mode.
The Mini has a mini USB port on top of the unit that allows you to plug it into your computer and update the firmware, as well as loading content on it. You can create directories and manage your content on it. The navigation on is done with 3 major buttons and 2 extensions of those buttons that allow you to scroll up and down in menu and settings.
Check out our full review of the Ectaco Jetbook Mini for all of the hardware and software semantics.
