Australia’s Current is reporting that Asus’ Regional retail manager Emmanuele Silanesu a new Eee might be in time for Computex and would sport a touch screen in a form factor other than a traditional clamshell. Don’t look for it to carry the Eee brand, though.
Interesting….looks like I need to bookmark June 3 for upcoming Asus News:
Speaking exclusively to Current.com.au, Asus Australia national retail manager, Emmanuele Silanesu, said the company’s Eee PC division was ““obviously looking at other form factors rather than just a clamshellÃ¢â‚¬Â.
While he could not give further details, Silanesu said the new model would use a touchscreen and hinted it could see the light at Taipei’s Computex show, which begins 3 June. The original Eee PC 700 was unveiled at the show last year.
