Dual Screen Eee Reader - Asus


The world of ebooks is about to start a new chapter with the arrival of the cheapest digital reader on the market. Asus, one of the world’s biggest consumer electronics businesses, confirmed last week that it is planning to shake up the market in the same way it did when it launched the first netbook — the low-cost alternative to the laptop.


If the renderings are to be taken seriously, I just have one question - Wouldn't it be easier to just get a book? Would definitely be easier to hold and wouldn't be a problem if you dropped it while carrying it around.

It's not like I am against E-Books or E-Book Readers. Most of the books I read are in the electronic format. It's just that, the purpose of E-Books was easy to store/share them online, right?

Now, how does an E-Reader help with that part? I can't understand why would anyone want to carry a Kindle or a Dual Screen Reader crap to just read a book when they are on a plane or whatever. It's a hell lot easier to carry a bloody book!

If you are a tech junkie, then you most definitely have your laptop in that back pack of yours and you can read your E-Book on your HP Tablet or your Mac or your Asus Eee PC. Why do you want to carry a Kindle or another E-Reader!

Sigh.. there definitely is a market for just about anything.

Although I read a lot of material on pdf files I dont see this thing making much difference in terms of user experience.
