Newegg is Selling the Ectaco jetBook Mini for $70

Ectaco’s latest and smallest eReader is on sale on newegg.com for only $70, shipping included.

Unlike a lot of eReaders, the jetBook Mini doesn’t have an E-ink screen. Instead it uses a 5″ low-power LCD screen which give nearly the same battery life as E-ink but with a faster screen refresh. It runs on 4 AAA batteries and should provide around 90 hours of reading time.

eBook format support is the jetBook Mini’s weak point ever since it was introduced about 6 months ago. Right now it only supports txt and FB2, but not any more common format like Epub. You’ll need to convert eBooks to a compatible format before you can read them.
