I have been expecting that a lot of e-book readers will come out eversince the Kindle made waves. And I am also putting the e-book reader on top of my Christman wishlist. I was actually thinking of just asking for a Kindle, but this rumored released from Asus might actually begin changing my mind.
According to The Times, which may be released this coming Christmas, the Asus Eee Reader could have dual-color touchscreens. Aside from being colored, the second display could also be used for a virtual keyboard and Web browsing. This feature can actually compete with the functionality of a netbook. Asus is saying that the company might put in built-in speakers, webcam and microphone for Skype calls.
Pricing would be optional (depending on the customization you would like to put into the device), but they say pricier models might have 3G. The Times said that the Asus Eee Reader will be priced at $160, so watch out for it this December.
