MSI chairman Joseph Hsu announced that the company is developing an eReader based on the NVIDIA Tegra chipset. More details are expected to be unveiled in the first half of 2010, as the device still has some problems waiting to be fixed.
Meanwhile, Gigabyte Technology vice president Richard Ma said that the company currently does not have plan for smartbook or e-book reader.
Asustek Computer has already indicated it plans to launch an e-book reader. According to company president and CEO Jerry Shen, Asustek's 9-inch grayscale e-book reader will soon appear in the market, but in limited quantities and targeting niche markets.
