Asus Releases an Ultra-Thin 9-Inch Eee Reader DR900

Posted by at 12:06 pm on December 6, 2010

Asus has officially launched its Eee Reader DR900. First unveiled in March this year at CeBIT, the 9-inch Eee Reader offers 2.25 times the reading area when compared to the popular 6-inch e-reader size. It offers near instant page turns via its SiPix electrophotoretic display, which draws power only when changing its image. As the display incorporates a capacitive touch layer, it is also able to dispense with the physical keyboard normally seen on e-readers. The display is able to remain highly readable in bright outdoor situations or under a bed light.

Designed for use with novels and even comic books among other print genres, the Eee Reader DR900 is less than 10mm thick and weighs 440grams. It comes with 2GB of internal storage, which will store up to 5000 ebooks. If that isn’t enough room, it can also be expanded further by adding an SD Card. The battery will also provide up to two weeks of continuous reading, or the equivalent of reading 20 novels consecutively. It will ship with Wi-Fi, while 3G is an option.

US launch details and pricing is not available at this time.
