The jetBook Color breaks through the educational market and offers students and teachers the ability to save money on books while providing unlimited teaching resources. The eBook reading Tablet is the world's first to utilise eye-friendly Color E-Ink technology on the market.
Originally the jetBook Color was focused on the education market for students to keep track of their schedules, check homework, and eventually replace all paper textbooks.

Firmware is updated by Ectaco on monthly base. May 2012 Update contained the following new additions:
  • Graphical interface performance has been increased. Now it takes less time to run your commands.
  • Page turning speed has been increased. Now you can flip through ebooks faster, because the program performs caching of preceding and subsequent pages relative to the page you are reading.
  • Three Refresh Page modes have been implemented: you can choose to fully refresh the screen after page turn on every page, every 3rd page, or every 5th page. Use the every page refresh mode to avoid seeing any traces from recently viewed pages. The other modes allow you to reduce screen flashing.
  • Now the device contains 9 workbook templates for onscreen drawing: various chart papers and lined papers.
  • You can use the text-to-speech engine to get the device to read a desired book aloud starting from the page you are viewing. It speaks the text clearly, with no stammer.
  • Hardware keys are working on the fly now – with reduced response time.
  • Speech recognition accuracy has been improved, so ECTACO jetBook COLOR has become even more responsive.
  • Several interface languages has been added. Now ECTACO jetBook COLOR features multilingual interface with the following languages: Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Ukrainian.
  • FlashCards has become more flexible: you can create your personal sets of entries copied from Talking Dictionary.
