Asus UK has released a series of photos of the company’s upcoming DR-950 eBook reader with a 9 inch e-Ink display. Digital eBook readers were one of the hottest products at CES this year, and by hot, I mean there were a lot of them. But it’s not at all clear whether there’s a huge market for devices that aren’t sold from companies named Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Sony.
Still, the Asus DR-950 is one of the more interesting models, if for no other reason than the fact that Asus sparked the netbook revolution by launching the Eee PC. While Asus is hardly the first company to release an e-Ink eBook reader, and the DR-950 hardly looks revolutionary, it certainly does look pretty nice.
The device has a 1024 x 768 pixel display and supports a range of formats including ePub, HTML, and PDF. It can play audio and has text to speech functionality. And it has an SD card slot for expanding the 2GB to 4GB of built in storage space.The eBook reader is just 0.35 inches thick
