At first the prospect of being able to use something outside of the Kindle as an eBook reader actually made me think there might be hope here. While Kindle on the iPhone is great, the standalone model is not welcome in my home. $300 for what again? Please…
Here we’ve got color, cool functionality (even if using Skype has NOTHING to do with me enjoying a good book), and of course the big fact that it is providing me with a pretty decent sounding eBook reader for less than the Amazon Kindle.
The downside? Well, I am unclear as to how easily I am able to obtain eBooks. I mean, the Kindle does have them readily accessible right there from the portable reader itself, thanks to Amazon. So can we expect the same from ASUS’ reader? I tend to question it myself.
