Avail now on eBay for $195 (or best offer) http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-8-Asus-Eee- ... xyyF5RNsgq

But Asus seems to have a couple of larger replacements https://www.asus.com/Eee-Family/Eee_Note_EA800/

Great! But the second lik you shared seems to be the same exact model.

If you mean the pen-enabled netbooks, they're nothing like EA800.

I've been doing some more e-reader research. Some new findings.

Onyx are planning to release a 13" e-ink device next year with a "flexible PVI HD screen" with 2200x1650 resolution:

Noteslate are taking pre-orders their new 6.8" Noteslate SHIRO:

They also have a teaser for a 13.3" model dubbed the Noteslate HERO:

There is also a prototype 13.3" device from Netronix at 1200x1600:

I saw Onyx's model, but didn't no that Noteslate was doing it too. I hope these projects aren't canceled…

Ectaco JetBook.

there's also an 1200x1600 13.3" offering from Sony for $800 USD: http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/show-digit ... gitalpaper

Old thread I see. Before the iPad Pro.

Current market status for ≥13in e-readers :
- Sony DPTS1.
- Onyx boox max. Vs its competitor: cheaper, heavier (500 vs 360g), open to Android Playstore, stylus only (finger doesn't work), has bluetooth and audio, a dozen format beyond PDF (epub, jpg, djvu...).
- Noteslate HERO doesn't appear on noteslate.com

iPads just don't use e-ink.

I'd try the Onyx... Android will allow you to display pretty much every file available. But are they readily available?

Bummer that they're still so expensive.

The problem is that most consumers have no need for large e-readers. There just no demand. That demand comes from the industry or maybe people with some academic background or persons who read a lot of scientific papers in general.

I also don't have a use for a big reader but a few years back, it would have been really helpful while studying... I had a Sony PRS-T1 back then and that was not of great use just because the screen was too small. Everything else was fine with it.
