ECTACO released a new product today called the jetBook eBook reader. The device is described as an incredibly sophisticated e-book reader with a built-in MP3 player that allows users to listen to audio books and read text materials as well.

The device is preloaded with translating dictionaries. The LCD is a high-resolution 5-inch unit that claims to be able to provide large text for reading and the device weighs only 7 ounces. The device has a SD card slot for storage and an internal rechargeable battery for power. Books marks and auto page turn functionality are offered as well. Pricing for the device is $349.95.

ECTACO, Inc. President and CEO David Lubinitsky recently announced that, "The new jetBook(R) now makes it possible to carry around a complete library -- from novels to technical documents, even children's books and poetry. This completely amazing device lets you sit down and read more comfortably than ever before. It really is the book of the future and fully eco-friendly. Not a single tree was cut down to make it!"

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
