Asus to Release Cheapest Ebook Reader

Times Online reports that Asus will be releasing an ebook reader by the end of the year.

The ebook reader will have a dual-screen display in full color with a spine, like a print book. It may also be possible to use the second screen to display a webpage or to have one of the screens act as a virtual keyboard. It is also possible that a microphone, webcam and speakers may be included for Skype.

A major selling point of the ebook reader, which will have both a premium and budget version, is that it will be cheaper than other ebook readers on the market today. While the Sony Reader Pocket Edition costs $199 and the Amazon Kindle costs $299, Asus’s ebook reader will only cost around $163 (£100).
