Ectacto Jetbook Color eReader On Hand in Russia

Ectacto Jetbook Color eReader is one of the pioneers of a new kind of eBook reading experience. Manufactured by the Ectacto, a company based in Russia, this gadget is one of the first ones in the market that feature a color E Ink display. This means that eBook readers can now enjoy color when reading their favorite electronically-published materials.

The Ectacto Jetbook Color eReader has a 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. It also runs on low-power, with battery life extending not only intended for few hours, but even for several weeks. In tune with the need to always be connected, it also offers 3G and Wi-Fi options.

These specifications are similar with the popular Amazon Kindle DX. However, unlike the Kindle, the Ectacto Jetbook Color eReader can handle color. Under optimal conditions, that is under bright sunlight, the colors on the Jetbook look vivid. The same, however, cannot be said in some conditions, like when it is used in low indoor lighting.

This revolutionary device is currently used by Russian schools, since it was conceptualized by Ectacto to replace the traditional paper-and-ink textbooks. In few weeks, however, it will also be available in the United States market.
