eReaders are a big deal right now and are some of the most popular gadgets online. The eReader promises to help revive the ailing print publishing industry that has struggled with subscribers and sales in the face of online competition.
We already know that Asus has an eReader in the works called the DR-950. The machine has a 9-inch screen and supports HTML and most document files. The first time we heard of the reader it was set for a mid 2010 launch.
Word is now coming in that the launch of the reader has been moved up to Q2 2010. Along with the DR-950 will come a smaller 6-inch version called the DR-57 with many of the same features. Pricing is unknown at this time.
