Low Priced e-reader Due from Ectaco

10/27/2009 03:52:02 PM Eastern

New York
- Ectaco will ship one of the lowest
priced e-readers to date at $149 later this month.

Called the jetBook-Lite it allows users to download books from
the Barnes & Noble Web site and operates on four AA batteries, as well as
rechargeable batteries - both new features for the Ectaco lineup.

The jetBook-Lite does not use the E Ink screen offered by several
other brands. E Ink reportedly lowers power consumption and delivers clear
text.

Ectaco's unit has a 5-inch screen and supports most e-Book
formats. It runs for 23 hours on four batteries and has an SD card slot.

The jetBook-Lite supports English, Spanish, Russian, Polish,
Chinese and other languages, and has a bi-directional dictionary for several
languages.

The pocket sized, 9-ounce unit supports e-book formats including
DRM, ePub, Mobi, PRC, RTF, TXT, PDF FB2, JPG, GIF, PNG and BMP.

Other features of the jetBook-Lite include automatic bookmarking,
adjustable type fonts and the CIA World Factbook.
