Asus Launches 9-inch eReader

Computer maker Asus has launched a new 9-inch screen eReader called the ASUS Eee Reader DR900. The eReader is Wi-Fi enabled and has a 3G option. The design is slim and light-weight, as the device is reportedly less than 10mm thick and weighs just under a pound.

Asus had this statement: “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.”

Asus did not give any information about if this eReader would be released in the U.S. market, but Tech Connect Magazine is reporting that the eReader will hit shelves in Europe this month for €319.
