Looks like the ASUS DR-950, the company’s newest 9-inch E Ink, touchscreen reading device will be arriving in April. ASUS has confirmed that it’s currently looking for content partners, but plans to have the e-reader in consumer’s hands by spring.

The price will be about £250 (or $354). We like it, with it’s 2 or 4GB or internal storage, Wi-Fi and 3G. But we are more excited about the OLED color DR-570 which is coming soon.

We have some more details on the color ASUS DR-570 e-book reader that showed up over the weekend. In addition to WiFi, 3G, and 122-hour real world battery life, you can also expect lightning quick 0.03 second page turns. In case you’re wondering that’s about 23 times faster than the Kindle and its competition.

It also sports 4GB of onboard storage with SDHC expansion, 512MB of SDRAM, and a 1,530mAh battery. That’s not all, it also has a built-in RSS reader, audio/video/Flash player, text to speech engine, and a built-in web browser. The device will hit before the end of the year.

The device will play Flash video, has both WiFi and 3G, and if you believe it can last for 122 hours on a single charge under “real world conditions.” Which makes it sound like even they don’t quite believe it. The device should be released by the end of the year.
