…unfortunately only for Japan’s market. After the release of the EEE E1004DN, Asus is going to release the 1002HAE on 16th May which will have under its hood an Intel Atom N280 rated at 1.66Ghz, 1 Gigabyte of RAM, 160 Gigabytes of storage and Windows XP. All this will use a 10.1 Inch WSVGA 1024×600 LED backlit display.
The Japanese people can choose from 3 colors: gray, blue and red. Also, the EEE PC will have 3 USB2.0 ports, IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN, Bluetooth v2.1+ EDR, a 1.3 Megapixel camera, 3.8-hour Li-Polymer battery, memory card slot.
All this packed in a 264×181×27.627.8mm case weighting in at 1.2 KG.
Suggested price is 49,800JPY = 380E = $506
And if I may add a personal opinion: I am a big fan of EEE PC, and let me tell you, this one doesn’t look too bad. I am curious if this release is a Japanese market-first or Japanese market-only. There’s a slight difference there.
