Asus eeeNote to sell for “under $200″ in the US

February 25th, 2011 by · 9 Comments · hardware news

One of Asus’ official blogs just posted a promo post for the eeeNote. Asus are promising that the eeeNote, their ereader with a grayscale LCD screen, will be available “soon”  with a retail under $200.

If that is for real, then the ereader market just flipped upside down again. With that retail price it’s a serious threat to the Nook, Kindle, NookColor, everything. Hell, with 13 hours battery life it’s a threat to Android tablets.

The eeeNote is based on a unique low power LCD screen, and it has Wifi, a Wacom touch screen, microSD card slot, speakers, a microphone, and judging from the video it has a pretty impressive set of apps.

There’s a demo video after the break.
