This is novel—Nokia may not have released any MeeGo phones in the end, but Asus' Eee PC X101 dualboots both Nokia and Intel's beleaguered MeeGo OS, or Windows 7. No ubiquitous Android or Linux here, folks.
Three of ASUS' CeBIT-bound Eee PCs have been revealed early, and they couldn't be further from the plastic Fisher Price-look of their original models if they tried. A brushed metal finish, wide touchpad and comfortable-looking keyboard all seem present. UPDATE
Eee PCs may not be as ubiquitous now as they were a year or two ago, but this T101MT model has popped up in France with its swiveling multitouch display and Windows 7 OS, looking mighty fiiiiine.
If you believe the dual core Atom rumors, the ASUS Eee PC 1201N could knock out all other netbooks in performance.
Is this weird marketing campaign between Moko and Asus encouraging me to buy an EeePC or Calvin Klein undies? Or am I supposed to donate some shirts to these girls so they don't have to wear those tiny things?
Ahh, that's more like it. Early reports of lofty British pricing had us worried that the ASUS T91 convertible tablet would sell for nearly $700; now, online retailers are listing the 8.9-inch touchscreen Eee at a much more reasonable $500.
There's no question, the Eee changed everything. But can Asus offer products that are on par with Apple design? According to Asustek vice chairman Jonathan Tsang, that's the aspiration.
We loved Asus' super-slim Eee Seashell, and it looks like Asus can see they might have a hit on their hands. In Asus' mind, that means it's time to bring on the new models, and the first seems to be an 11.6-inch Seashell with an alleged 11-hour battery life.
In their continued quest to hash out absolutely every permutation of the netbook category, ASUS has created something pretty interesting: a passively-cooled Android netbook based on the ultra-low-draw Qualcomm Snapdragon platform.
I find the Asus T91, spotted at CES, to be one of the most interesting netbooks coming to the market today.
Crave UK's Rory Reid did a great experiment: Test the typing accuracy of the iPhone vs an Asus Netbook in a rally car racing at full speed. The video and the results will surprise you.
