The specs look pretty good with the IREX DR800SG sporting an 8.1inch screen, two Gigabytes of storage, memory card expansion and a stylus input. It is black and white at the moment thought the company says it will launch a colour version next year.
While the COOL-ER is light, skinny and easy to use and quite the equal of its small group of direct rivals, the ereader market is about to get a lot hotter.
The company which turned the notebook on its head now has plans to do the same for ereaders with a model that has dual screens. The idea being that you can read an ereader as you could a normal book and turn pages, or even better, use the second screen for web surfing or whatever else ASUS comes up with.
