Do you recall how the EA800 was supposed to hit the US market this year with a retail of less than $200? Well, it’s not.
Ever since Asus announced the imminent US launch of their 8′ ereader/tablet/ textbook platform back in February, I’ve been nervously waiting for it to appear. I planned to get one the day it was available, and I even ignored the Ebay auctions. But it’s not happening. Asus posted this little gem on their Facebook page last week:
ASUS North America Hi Toby, it’s looking like the current generation EA800 at least will not make it to the U.S.
On the upside, at least now we know there is a next gen device in the works. That’s something.
