Ectaco Jetbook Color and E Ink prototypes hands-on pictures

New, 6 comments

Ectaco's Jetbook Color will likely be the first color e-reader in the US market when it arrives in January. It's already available elsewhere, including Russian school systems, and we were quite frankly scratching our head trying to learn fish anatomy with a foreign language. The colors on E Ink's e-reader prototype, however, had a little more punch. See for yourself, including a prototype drill with E Ink display. Seriously.

Saturation on the 9.7-inch, 1600 x 1200 E Ink Triton screen felt a bit low, but the viewing angles were of course great — and just like its monochrome sibling, no battery is drained when idle.
