According to the Times Online, Asus is likely to launch an ebook reader with two screens, sometime before the end of the year. The two screens would enable a person to use the reader like a conventional book, displaying two pages at a time. Alternatively, one screen could display the book text, while the other allows the user to surf the web at the same time.
This offering from Asus, known for its low-cost netbook, is likely to challenge other ebook readers from Sony and Amazon on price. A single screen version, according to the Times Online article, could cost less than £100.
