The Sunday Times published a widely linked story about an Asus eBook reader suggesting that Asus is making a dual page eBook reader (See also our earlier coverage by Robert). The article suggest that the Asus Eee eBook reader would be based on the design of a dual screen touchscreen notebook Asus has shown at the CeBIT 2009.

The dual screen notebook concept was actually a result of a user community idea contest. A dual page eBook reader that opens like a book sounds intriguing at first, but I do not think it adds anything to reading a book electronically. The price of such a device will be too high as well.
Asus actually wants to make the cheapest eBook reader, which means it will be a grayscale e-ink display model like all the others. The dual screen eBook reader will stay in the labs and decorate the Asus booth at trade-shows for the foreseeable future.
Asus said in August that they plan to release an eBook reader under the Eee brand.
