Asus Launching E-Book Reader and Chrome OS Tablets / Smartbooks Later This Year

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

This shouldn't be a surprise, but Asus is looking to launch an e-book reader in a couple of months and they're going to go head-to-head with the Apple iPad with their own tablet. At Computex (June 1-5) they'll be showing off their e-book reader. That's actually all they said though so no details here. They hinted at launching a smartbook and even a tablet PC running Chrome OS in the second half of this year as well.

Update: According to Slash Gear, Asus' CEO said that this will be a "killer product." They're also assuming that this will be the Eee Pad which will be a tablet made with Nvidia's Tegra 2 graphics. We'll just have to wait until June to find out exactly what it will be.

Interested in another Yinlips product? Well, if so, this could be the one for you. They plan to launch this 6-inch e-book reader with an e-ink display and a similar design. Apparently though, this e-book reader will have a 20 hour battery life and an FM radio. Of course, you'll be able to read a couple of books too. We don't know the price, full spec sheet, or the targeted launch date so you'll have to wait around for all of that information. Too bad the screen is only black and white.
