Asus Ereaders Could Be Launching Much Earlier Than ExpectedS

The DR-950 and DR-570 weren't expected to go on sale until the very end of the year, but Digitimes is quoting sources as placing the two ereaders on a second quarter release schedule. Asus has commented they haven't yet started producing enough of the ereaders for them to launch, but the initial Q4 release date is looking more and more unrealistic, since photos of the 950 looking very polished turned up on Asus' UK Flickr account the other day.

UPDATED: Electricpig has dished out the UK pricing and availability deets, with an April launch slated for the DR-950, and a rough £250 cost ($403).
