jetBook brings multi-lanugage support to e-books

ECTACO jetBook Reader

Relative newcomer ECTACO became the latest to join the slowly growing field of e-book readers with the jetBook. The handheld uses a 5-inch e-paper display to supply grayscale books and photos without the eyestrain that normally accompanies LCDs. Its primary change from the formula of its rivals is language support: the jetBook not only supports Russian, Spanish, and multiple other languages natively but comes shipped with translation dictionaries to make foreign books readable without hunting down native versions or loading extra software.

The ECTACO reader otherwise follows the approach of its competitors with an SD card slot handling most storage, a USB port for a direct connection to a PC, and support for MP3 files to play audiobooks and music. The jetBook is already up for orders and sells for $350 in its standard red trim.
