New Book Reader

Asus just announced a new ebook reader with two, color, touch screens that will fold up like a real book.

The device will probably be shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2010 and it will likely be cheaper than Kindle and Sony e-book readers. The consumer launch is planned for late 2009 or early 2010.

More readers from other manufacturers are also scheduled to come out this year or early next year, but they are all black and white.

One version might have a webcam, microphone, speaker, and the ability to make calls via Skype.
