Asustek Shows Off the E-Reader DR-900 at CeBIT 2010
      03/03/10 03:53 PM

Asustek Computer is showcasing its first e-book reader, the E-Reader DR-900, at CeBIT 2010 taking place in Hanover, Germany. The reader features a 9-inch monochrome SiPix-developed e-paper display, 2GB or 4GB of storage, and a battery life of 10,000 page turns, Asustek indicated.

One of its most interesting features is a capacitive touch screen that seems to avoid the glare we've seen on resistive touch screen ebook readers like the Sony Reader Touch and Daily Editions.

The e-book reader will offer native Wi-Fi support with optional 3G network support.

When will see it actually ship? The DR-900 is still in the early stages, so maybe by the fall of this year (and not necessarily in the US). Hanvon, a brand that is mostly overseas, also showed a similar device at CeBIT.
