Hi Everyone,

We are proud to announce our brand new jetBook K-12 eReader designed for use in an educational setting. Our vision is a classroom without heavy textbooks, huge backpacks and notes scattered all over the place. The K-12 is the result of months of research and development and a ton of feedback from some of our current clients in the educational field (yes you guys will be getting a free one when it comes out )

Some of my favorite highlights: (Most programs are interactive with speech recognition!!)
-SAT prep courses.
-Speed Reading Program.
-Language teaching programs.
-Interactive periodic table of elements.
-Multiple calculators (Graphing, Accounting, Loan, Scientific).
-C-Pen OCR. Scanning and translating text. (Included)

Other great features:
-Support for almost any format including Adobe DRM.
-50 State reading list.
-Bio, Geo, Earth Sci, Math Reference guide.
-Language translation features.
-Much more than i can list here...

What will the K-12 cost?: We have not finalized the price.

What about the price justification?:
-SAT Preparation course= $600 - $1,100
-Speed reading = $40 - $80 for software.
-Text translator = For an accurate one $99 per language. (free online software is very inaccurate.)
-Language teaching with Speech recognition = $350
-C-pen Scanner. OCR = $150
-Graphing Calculator = $70 - $110
-Accounting Calculator = $70 - $100
-Oxford talking dictionary = $170 - $200
-Electronic Flash cards = $50 per language.
-eBook reader with multilingual and multi format support = $50
- Spanish and English Grammar Course = $80 - $150.
-There are many more programs and multiple languages but I think I proved my point at a minimum.

Total = $1,729 - $2,389. And this is an underestimation.

How much does our School have to pay?
-With government grants and funding you would potentially pay $0. Title III funding as well as other technology and educational grants will help pay for part or all of your purchase.
-We offer discounts for classroom and school sets. eMail jerry@ectaco.com for a quote.

I'm in the media Can i review one?
-Yes, shortly before they are released we will have some samples for review. Review period is 30 days and the product should be sent back. Please email jerry@ectaco.com for more info.

Our school is interested. Can we get more info and a price Quote?
-Yes schools and other governmental organizations can get more info and Price quote before the official release of the product. Send questions to jerry@ectaco.com

The jetBook K-12 looks like an awesome little gadget. Long gone are the days of carrying heavy bags full of books!
