Asus EEE Note A800 detailed

Do you recall the EEE Tablet that Asus unveiled at Computex? No wait, it was the EEE Pad, wasn't it? Ah heck with it. Asus are pretty bad about naming a device and sticking with it. They're also pretty bad about giving clear information on their gadgets.What I do know is that the 8" grayscale  ereader like device that Asus showed off at Computex now has a product page and a new name. This is the EEE Note A800:

I don't have the specific details on the screen tech, but I don know it's a 64 level grayscale screen (768x1024 resolution) with a Wacom touchscreen. The EEE Note also has a 2MP digital camera, 4GB Flash, a microSD card slot, speaker, microphone, Wifi, and about 13 hours of battery life.

There was talk at Computex that Asus were targeting this at the academic market. I can definitely picture that now.

It's being launched in Taiwan in the next couple weeks with a retail of about $216. There's no word yet on price or availability.

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."
