[edit] update

This product may have shipped to Russia and some countries in Europe in small quantities. SiPix, the screen vendor, went out of business and the assets were purchased by E Ink in late 2012. This unit is still on the web site but no longer in active production.

Asus has equipped the e-book reader with text-to-speech functionality - there's a 3.5mm headphone socket on board too - web browser, handwriting recognition, dictionary and either 3.5G or 802.11g connectivity.
