ASUS DR-950 ereader live shots released

By Chris Davies on Friday, Jan 22nd 2010

The ASUS DR-950 ereader isnít the DR-570 OLED-lovely weíve been hearing about lately, but we wonít turn our nose up at a 9-inch E Ink touchscreen and integrated WiFi and HSDPA. So far itís yet to show up for playtime, but ASUS have released a few live images (including some comparison shots with the iPhone) just to prove itís more than a render.



The DR-950 has a 1024 x 768 resolution display, supporting PDF, ePub and HTML files among others, and offers text-to-speech and RSS. Thereís also 2-4GB of onboard storage Ė with an SD card slot to augment that Ė together with a USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack, and ASUS arenít ruling out squeezing WiMAX into the 0.35-inch thick frame.

Weíre not quite so ready as Electricpig to declare the touchscreen layer interference-free, and will want to have a closer look (at a real unit, not press shots) to figure out whether it blurs the E Ink panel or not. Still, itís another interesting looking ereader; letís just hope the Apple iPad doesnít sweep the bottom out of the segment next Wednesday.
