Asus DR900 officially up for grabs

Price yet to be confirmed for 9-inch effort.

Asus’s DR900 e-reader has finally launched, nine months after first taking a bow at Hanover’s CeBIT gadget bash. The pencil-thin effort comes with a capacious 9-inch screen, which packs capacitive touch skills.

With instant page turns and the ability to eschew glare in direct bright light, Asus is hoping the DR900 will prove a winner with those after a Kindle alternative.

The battery is good for two weeks continuous reading according to Asus, while Wi-Fi is crammed inside. There’s also a 3G version if you just have to get your book fix before hitting a Wi-Fi network.

Despite saying its release was imminent, Asus has failed to hand over any pricing details. Until we get those, we won’t know whether this really is a Kindle rival worth stumping up for. For news on that elusive pricing, and all the latest gadget headlines, stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages.
