Boy, talk about diluting the brand. Coming hot off the heels of the Eee PC Keyboard, the announced but never conceptualized Eee Phone (which I am still hoping would push through) and a slew of other Eee-branded stuff, Asus is going to come out with an E-Book reader.
This new reader, which Asus claim they plan to launch within the Eee series by around the end of 2009, says Asus company president Jerry Shen, will compete with the Sony Reader and Amazon’s Kindle.
I honestly don’t know if Asus can make this a hit, but if Asus can make E-Book readers as mainstream as netbooks, I’m all for it.
Currently, there are no specs available for the Eee E-Book reader. Also, Asus, I’m still waiting for that Eee Phone.
