PDF on Jetbook colour 2
#1  mick1 04-13-2014, 11:59 AM
Hey folks, this is my first post here. I've been waiting for a full-size colour eReader for several years (before the iPad was announced / released) that I can use for reading academic papers. It would be nice to save trees and not carry a stack of paper around with me. I have an iPad, but reading on it kills my eyes.

So, my question is: is there anyone out there with a Jetbook colour 2 that uses it for this? If so, how does it work? Or, alternatively, would some kind person out there mind taking a photo of the Jetbook displaying a science PDF if I emailed one to them?

Thanks in advance!

I would advise against it. The page background is dark and muddy in all but the brightest of lighting conditions and the device software is slow and clunky. Have a look here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...94#post1961494 or here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...88#post1978288

I'd be highly interested as well.
But all the reviews about Jetbook Color and similar devices, for example the PocketBook Color Lux http://www.pocketbook-int.com/de/products/pocketbook-color-lux are devastating.
I didn't find a single review with a single positive aspect...
