This news could not come at a better time. Ectaco has been struggling to gain traction in the USA market with its K12 and recently released Ectaco Jetbook Color. The company is currently testing the waters in New York, where its e-readers are undergoing tests in the local school system to evaluate the viability of the device. Ectaco has seen more success outside of North America since it has bundled linguistic packages for over 200 different languages. It is also competing against Plastic Logic for lucrative contracts in the Russian educational system.
