With the number of e-reader and tablet hybrids being introduced in the market these days, you might get confused as to which one to get. Well, you can always check our previous posts here as we’ve featured quite a few choices this year. However, if what you want is something that is quite distinctive from the rest, then you may have to wait a couple of weeks more because in January, ECTACO jetBook Color will be due for just $500.
Equipped with a 9.7-inch, 1600X1200 Triton Color E Ink display and a Wi-Fi connection, this e-reader is actually a re-brand of China’s Hanvon reader that is available in Eastern Europe. Originally, this product was only focused on the education market since students no longer want bulky notebooks to keep track of their schedules or check homework. But because of its success in Eastern Europe, this will be released soon worldwide so that everyone, students and none-students alike, will be able to take advantage of this product that will eventually replace all paper textbooks.
