ASUS EEE Tablet E-Reader To Be Released Soon
Tech company Asus has announced today that they will released the EEE Tablet E-Reader soon. This is an electronic reader that will also serve as a digital note-taking device thanks to its touch-sensitive screen.
The Eee Tablet uses a reflective LCD display, instead of the E-Ink found on readers like the Kindle and the Nook. This means it can refresh the screen without the lag that is common to E-Ink displays.
The touch sensitive display is based on Wacom’s pen-input technology, which can sense 2450 dpi. The device also comes with a built-in camera, as well as a USB port and microSD slot.
The product is designed for students and mobile professionals and will be available in the Fall of 2010. “We want to put it in the hands of every college student,” says Will Chuang, product manager with Asus.
