26. Asus to enter the E-Reader market

Apparently 80,000 ebook readers have been sold in the UK to date. I wonder where they are! This may be set to change soon with the announcement of Asus, the "inventors" of the netbook, entering the market. It appears that they have a "double page" book, in full colour and an entry level version at around £100 ready to hit the market soon. (Codeword for by Christmas?) Unfortunately the news does not say about the text-to-speech, which was the thorn in the side for Amazon's Kindle.
