I’m working on a few reviews of e-readers right now, but what I’m seeing here from Asus pretty much blows them all away. I’d seen pictures, but seeing the camera and writing in motion is a whole other world. The weird part is it’s not actually an e-ink display, it’s a monochrome LCD sans backlight. What the hell, right? Whatever works, I guess, although it brings the battery life down to a (still respectable) 10 hours.
The crazy thing? It’s supposed to be only $200. That makes it a huge bargain if what we’re seeing here really works. Only caveat is… it looks a little thick.
I’ll withhold judgment until I actually have one in my hands. I think I’ll email Asus right now.
