Hands-on with Asus' Eee Tablet eReader/Writer with Integrated Digicam

by Mathew Miranda

Without a doubt, mobile computing is making its mark over at Computex 2010. After announcing their Eee Pad tablet PC, Asus gave us a closer look at their slick looking e-Reader/e-Writer creation designed for students and mobile business professionals. The little slate's features include a 10 hour battery life, 2450 dpi touch resolution screen, pen writing and input controls, a fast screen refresh response time, 2MP camera, USB port, and a MicroSD slot. With a $199 asking price and a September release date, we came away impressed with the new gadget form Asus, but don't just take our word for it. Hit the our hands on video here to see for yourself...

We're rather curious to see how this new device will impact the eReader market, along with Asus' strong partnerships with Amazon. Kindle books on the way perhaps? You can read between the lines there a bit for sure. We haven't gotten anything but a few hints on that front but if we were the betting type, we'd say keep your eye on how Asus will handle content distribution on this one.
