Asus quietly announced last week that its newest eReader, the eeeNote, would soon be available in the US with a retail of “under $200″.
The eeeNote, which first appeared last year at Computex, is based on a unique 8″ LCD screen. This screen is both low power and grayscale, not color. The eeeNote also has a Wacom touch screen layer (pressure sensitive with 256 levels), Wifi, 4GB Flash storage, and a microSD card slot. Battery life is reputed to be around 13 hours.
The eeeNote is targeted at the academic market, and it has an impressive suite of features, including scribbled and typed notes, a web browser, sketch pad, and many others. In fact, Asus calls this a digital notepad, not an eReader, which should tell you something about what it can do.
