First hands on with the Asus DR-900 (video)

I just came across the first hands on review of the new Asus DR-900. The review is in Spanish, but I linked to a translated version. Start here. All in all, the reviewer sounds impressed. He has a few problems becuase this ereader was released for the Chinese market, but none were insurmountable. I can finally confirm some hardware details from the pictures. This ereader has 2 speakers, a microSD card slot, Touchscreen, Wifi, and an empty spot where 3G could have gone. Apps include an on device ebookstore and a browser. I think the review is worth reading just for the pictures. Check it out.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Hi, Nate, I don’t know if you speak Spanish, but this guy is saying in the beginning of the video that it will be marketed in February – March 2011. Spanish market dates, I hope: nonetheless, it’s disappointing. If he’s right, it means that most likely it won’t be marketed in most European countries before Christmas – that’s crazy!

    • Thanks.

      I can speak Spanish, but I have enough background noise (in my house) that I missed most of what he said. Thanks.

  2. I didn’t watch the video, just looked at the review. This goes nowhere without a bookstore component. So will they put B&N or Kobo on it? If Asus is smart, they’ll go with Kobo.
