It appears that one awesome E-Reader isn't enough for the likes of Asus. Fresh on the heels of the announcement of their 6" OLED Reader, information has come out that Asus is working on a 9" grayscale reader. (Fudzilla) This reader bears the name DR-950 and sports a 1024x768 resolution and a thickness of only 9mm. It weighs 370 grams and includes software that integrates RSS feeds, translation, and text to speech functionality.

The DR-950 will come with either 2 or 4 GB of internal memory. All models will pack an SD slot, WiFi, and HSDPA. WiMax will be optional. These readers will also have stereo speakers, 3.5 mm audio jacks, a USB port, and support for PDF, TXT, Audible, MP3, HTML, and more file formats. No information on price or availability is out yet, but I would be surprised if it ends up costing more than the Kindle DX.
