It will be a trio
Thanks to the guys over at RegHardware and Electricpig, there has been new info on Asus' future e-reader lineup, or to be precise Asus' trio lineup. The new info includes a full lineup of Asus' e-readers as well as some details about the most interesting one, the OLED equipped DR-570.
The guys from RegHardware managed to confirm that Asus is planning a total of three different e-readers and in addition to the DR-950 and DR-570, there will also be a DR-750, a 5.7-inch monochromatic version that should appeal to those that aren't planning to spend much on their e-book reader. The DR-750 is believed to have same features as the DR-570, except for the colour OLED screen of course.
The fresh details about the DR-570 went up at Electricpig.co.uk include a full specifications about the screen and battery as well as some neat info about the actual insides of the DR-570. The 5.7-inch OLED screen will have a 768x1024 resolution and a refresh rate of 0.03 seconds. The device will be equipped with 4GB of flash storage, but we guess that other versions might be coming as well. The DR-570 will also be equipped with 412MB of RAM memory and the entire device weighs around 200g.
The 122 hour battery life on a single charge has already been mentioned and according to these fresh informations, a 1530mAh battery is the culprit behind such endurance claims.
Pricing and availability dates are still unknown, although the grayscale DR-950 and DR-750 are expect quite sooner than the OLED DR-570 one.
