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 think most ebook readers allow you to make notes etc., in the margins as well as bookmark certain sections.
I like this idea especially for school books... (writing in it something you where never supposed to do to a real book lol)
But this sounds like it might be an Ebook reader with some video or maybe games ability thrown in.
Gives me a good idea for the next version of children's books put a touch screen on it and some nice color and maybe it could read the book aloud too.... I can see something like that from Playschool hmmm probably leapster already has something like this lol
If it has a basic E-ink screen, it would need to have some sort of webcam, audio and external monitor connection to do something with the extra computing power.
But it would be cool if it could also support compressed text and html (.zip/.bz/.rar or .7z/.tar). That would be awesome!
Perhaps even an audio reader of text formats.
