Asus Eee Note EA800

Posted on 13 May 2011

Because of the confusion Asus’s eReader caused, being associated with regular tablets, its name has been changed and re-released. ASUS has just officially announced the EEE Note EA800, an intriguing 8 inch eReader which comes with added functionality of a notepad, video and photo camera and an educational tool. Due to this added functionality the EEE Note EA800 is in a league of its own.

Here is the system specification of the EEE Note EA800 taken from the official website:

First Impressions:

The screen which is 8inch in size is not color, and it supports 64 shades of gray. It has a 768×1024 resolutions which turn out in 254 dpi resolution. To make things more interesting, the Wacom digitizer screen supports 256 levels of pressure, which allows you to draw thicker or thinner lines only by adjusting the amount of pressure you apply while writing/drawing with the stylus. The batter life isn’t amazing as the screen isn’t eInk, ASUS quoted specs will last you 10 days in stand-by, 10 hours with WiFi on and 13.5 hours without it. The power output is pretty nice, with a 3700 mAh battery, a very nice value for a device that weighs only 520 grams and measures 139 x 222.4 x 11 mm. And the 4GB internal memory of the EEE Note EA800 is said to be good as to hold 10.000 eBooks or 20.000 hand notes. And if that still doesn’t satisfy your thirst you can always get an additional MicroSD card, which is up to 16 GB in size, so that makes an overall 20GB which is very awesome. The integrated digital camera and voice recorder also allows other types of material to be captured with ease as well, which makes the Eee Note the ideal digital device for everyone from students to business users.

Conclusion:

ASUS has a very good device which is selling as good as the Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook eReaders. Priced at 230$ the ASUS EEE Note EA800 is affordable for everyone and ASUS has also launched some nifty apps compatible for it as well.
