Asus press event

Though Asus’ CEO is on stage now talking a bit about multi-touch convertible netbooks (Eee PC T91), much of this event so far is focused on software. When we walked into the crowded room, a presenter was demonstrating Windows 7 on an Eee. I don’t see any new hardware of interest to this site; unless someone is going to bring something out from behind the curtain (everything else is spread out on a few podiums), there’s nothing to see here.

  • I’d love to see an EeePC convertible/tablet netbook … say 8.9″ size (no bigger than the EeePC 901), with an internal PCI-Express-Mini card slot (that has an available antenna wire), and EeeBuntu and/or Android on it. Though, obviously they’d only sell it with XP and/or Linpus, I’m sure.

  • I saw the Asus prototype with 8.9 and has multi touch but sounds like they couldn’t get the multi touch to work. This reminds me of my Gigabyte M912 in size.

  • I’ve been trying out Windows 7’s pre-beta on a beat up rig (if you’re interested it’s on my site…) and I gotta say, having played around with it makes this T91 very interesting to me. Windows 7, by my estimation, is going to be huge and the inclusion of multi-touch input has me hooked.
