ASUS has spilt the official details of their Eee Note EA800 note-taking ereader. Based around an 8-inch anti-glare 768 x 1024 grayscale display, the Eee Note EA800 supports handwritten notes with a Wacom digital stylus – that snaps into a handy dock on the top edge – with 256 levels of pressure sensitivity. There’s also WiFi b/g and a 2-megapixel camera.
That camera, ASUS original suggested, could be used by students to snap photos of text and images and then annotate them directly on the Eee Note’s display. Ports include microUSB, a 3.5mm headphones socket and a microSD card slot, to augment the onboard 4GB of ROM. There’s also a mono speaker and integrated microphone.
ASUS reckons the Eee Note EA800 will last for up to 10hrs continuous use with the wireless turned on, or 14.5hrs with it turned off. Alternatively the 3,700 mAh battery is good for up to 10 days standby. It supports PDF, ePub, MP3, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, txt, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt and pptx files. No word on pricing at this stage.
