      #39352 - 12/08/10 04:46 PM

Asus today introduced its new ASUS Eee Reader DR900, a 9-inch touch screen ebook reader. Here is more info on this new ebook reader from ASUS:

The ASUS Eee Reader is less than 0.39" thick and weighs 0.97 lbs. It has 2GB of internal storage (expandable via SD Card) that can store up to 5,000 ebooks and the two-week battery life. The Eee Reader has a 9" SiPix electrophoretic display that's also a capacitive touch screen. It also has built-in Wi-Fi and optional 3G.

Asus Eee Reader 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).
