World's First 9-inch Touch-Screen Ebook Reader - the Asus Eee Reader DR900
Posted: 29-Nov-2010 [Source: Asus]

[Asus announces the Eee Reader DR900 with a 9" screen, weighs 440g and is less than 10mm thick, offers 2GB of storage (expandable via SD card), touch-screen, virtual keyboard, and is Wi-Fi enabled.]

Those who love to read on the go will rejoice at the arrival of the new ASUS Eee Reader DR900. With a 9-inch screen that offers 2.25 times the reading area compared to 6-inch ebook readers, this sleek device is ideal for reading material ranging from novels to comic books — and everything else in between. Highly portable, long battery life

Less than 10mm thick and weighing just 440g, the Eee Reader is a highly portable travelling companion that can be taken on any journey, whether it’s the daily commute or a long-haul flight. Its 2GB of internal storage (expandable via SD Card) can store up to 5,000 ebooks and the two-week battery life is long enough to read 20 novels back-to-back between recharges. Read on the beach or in bed

This ultra-low power consumption is possible because the Eee Reader’s SiPix electrophoretic display only uses power to change its image, not to maintain it. Page turns are virtually instant and the monochrome image is as crisp as ink printed on paper. Better still, the screen stays clear even in broad daylight, making so it’s as easy to read on the beach as it is under a bedside light.

Easy to use touch-screen interface

The Eee Reader’s 9-inch capacitive touch-screen also removes the need for a physical keyboard and delivers a simple and intuitive user interface. Readers both young and old can master the Eee Reader in minutes, and with built-in Wi-Fi and optional 3G, it puts a world of reading material at everyone’s fingertips.

Product Highlights:

* 9-inch SiPix electrophoretic display reflects light like paper to mimic a printed page, giving a more natural and more comfortable reading experience than backlit LCD displays.

* Capacitive touch-screen with a virtual keyboard can be used to annotate reading material, make handwritten notes and even draw sketches.

* Buy ebooks no matter where you are, thanks to the WebKit-based browser and built-in Wi-Fi, plus optional 3G.

* Read non-stop for up to four days on battery power with Wi-Fi enabled, and up to two weeks with Wi-Fi disabled.

* High-quality text-to-speech supports for 23 languages, giving instant conversion of ebooks into audio books.

* No thicker than a pencil (221 x 191 x 9.7mm) and weighs just 440g (Wi-Fi model).
