ASUS finally adds tablet functionality to the Eee PC lineup

For those of you who were hoping that ASUS would try to consolidate its Eee PC product family and make things a little bit easier to peruse, you may have to keep waiting. For those that were wishing that ASUS would add a tablet SKU to the product mix, you're in luck.

ASUS is blanketing CES with a slew of new Eee PC models and those most intriguing ones are in a Tablet PC form-factor. The Eee PC T91 is the smaller of the two Tablet PCs and features an 8.9" LED-backlit touch screen display. The Eee PC T101H ups the ante by boosting the screen size to 10.1".

ASUS was a bit light on the specifications for the notebooks, but both feature Windows XP Home SP3 and a customized ASUS interface for touch screen functionality. The Eee PC T91 measures 225mm x 164mm x 25.2 - 28.4mm and weighs 2.2 pounds. We do know that the notebook uses an Atom Z520 processor and is available with both GPS and a TV tuner. As is the case with most Eee PC models, it will be available in black and white.

Although ASUS didn't mention specifications for the T101H, one would assume that it should at least match those offered by the smaller T91.

Stay tuned for more CES coverage from DailyTech in the coming days.

This is quite a machine! I hope they have Ubuntu drivers and held onto the solid state storage...

Good work ASUS!

Gotta hand it to them for hitting this niche market with a strong force. All I'm waiting for is a sub $500 11" netbook by the summer time, preferably with the Ion motherboard.

Agree 100%. I've been waiting a long time for a sub $600 tablet of ANY kind, that doesn't use 3 year old hardware, and this looks like it will be exactly what I've been waiting for. Ion would be another huge plus... hope NVIDIA puts it at a price-point that's comparable to intel's current offerings...
