Asus OLED Display eBook Reader
Alright, as some have said, this year will be the year of the eBook. Asus, the makers of the Eee PC, may be entering this market with the potential introduction of an eBook reader with a full color OLED display. Featuring a 6 inch screen and the ability to play Flash videos over 3G and WiFi, this rumored device sure has potential. To top it off, it is said that it would have a 122 hour battery – now that is long! I wonder what type of conditions it would need to be in to get that kind of energy efficiency. How will this potential upcoming eBook reader fare in comparison to e-Ink type displays which are soft to the eyes? Well, I for one can stare at an LCD screen all day, but I thought the goal of an eBook reader would be to simulate a book and not be hard on the eyes. In any case, I’m excited and wonder what’ll be of this gadget toy.
