Asus shows 9″ DR-900 e-Reader at CeBIT
Asus just showed off its DR-900 e-Reader at the CeBIT 2010 convention in Hanover, Germany.
Almost similar to the size of of the Kindle DX, the Asus DR-900 eReader boasts of very long battery life — up to 10,000 page turns on a single charge.
The 9-inch screen has a resolution of 1024×768 pixels and support for PDF, ePub and HTML files.
The device comes with WiFi connectivity with an optional 3G/HSDPA slot as well. There’s a 2GB and 4GB built-in storage with SD card slot for expansion as well as a USB port and 3.5mm jack.
No word from Asus how much these would sell for and when they’ll be out but it’s good to see some Kindle alternatives out there (hopefully, way cheaper too!).
