Asus DR-900 now available in France

There's no word on when Asus new 9" ebook reader will be sold in the US, but it's turned up in the stock of a French retailer.

High TechPlanet currently have a limited supply of the DR-900, and their asking price is €299 plus shipping. that converts to roughly $424, which might explain why it's not sold in the US.

Asus are in an experimental mood right now, and the DR-900 is one of the experiments. It's 1 of 3 ereader proposed by Asus (the third hasn't been released yet). The DR-900 is based around a 9" Sipix screen, and it has Wifi, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, and according to some reports it also has a 3G connection.

Asus' other experiment in ebook readers is the eeeNote EA800, which also never made it to the US.

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."

    Doubt that. Consider that there’s probably a VAT in that €299 price. Which should be removed when shipped to the US. If something $299 is (roughly) €299, why would something €299 be (roughly) $424?
