Asustek to launch 8-inch e-book reader at below US$599


Asustek to launch 8-inch 64-grayscale e-book reader at below US$599.

What exactly is Asutek thinking?

  • For $599, you can get an iPad, which admittedly is not as good at e-reading but boy, it does a whole lot of other things for the same price.
  • For $599, you can get a passable notebook with a decent Core i5 processor and Windows 7.  Not a great e-book reader, but it does a whole lot of other things for the same price.
  • For $139, you can get the Amazon Kindle, with its 630,000 books available. I didn’t even bother going to Barnes and Noble.
  • There are no book publishers who support Asutek’s e-book reader, so you can read with great clarity and resolution, if there were any books to buy and read.

So, I repeat the question: What exactly is Asutek thinking?
