MSI to Unveil Tegra-based Ereader in 2010

According to Digitimes, Micro-Star International chairman Joseph Hsu revealed that his company is currently developing an ebook reader based around Nvidia's Tegra chip. However, MSI has run into some problems and, for that reason, the company is waiting until the first half of 2010 before it announces further details.

Tegra, already the beating heart of Microsoft's Zune HD, is pegged as the next big thing when it comes to powering MIDs and smartphones. Considering Tegra is well able to power an ebook reader, Engagdet reports that it is likely MSI's device will do more than just display books. What do you think MSI could throw into an ebook reader to make it more tempting for the average joe? Let us know in the comments below!

    I never used an ebook reader before, but wondering if they ever implemented highlighting and bookmarks with pen notes? Basically what a user would do with a real book. I want to place a bookmark on a page. Highlight a special section. Then write a note on my thoughts. The program would then give you a selection to skip to the next bookmark, or highlighted section, or pen notes.

    I believe the new Nook has some note taking abilities as well as highlighting built in, thats partly what caught my attention. That and being able to click a word and pull it up in a dictionary right off the nook was kinda cool

    I think most ebook readers allow you to make notes etc., in the margins as well as bookmark certain sections.
