From Netbook to ebook…

Asus, whose EeePC heralded the current obsession with netbooks apparently has a twin screen ereader under development – and it may be on the market by year’s end. For less than two hundred bucks. From Engadget:

According to president Jerry Shen, the Eee Reader will become the planet’s cheapest e-book reader, though a premium model could also be launched to satisfy those craving higher-end features — probably amenities like inbuilt 3G, a web browser and expandable storage. The dual screen form factor would enable users to read books as books were intended to be read, or they could use the secondary panel to surf the web, type on a virtual keyboard or whatever else ASUS dreams up. We’re told that the firm is aiming for the £100 ($163) mark on its low-end model…

Bring it on…
