Is something afoot with ASUS' Eee Box EB1501 nettop
? The Ion-toting mini desktop PC has had listings at a few major e-tailers for a while now, but ASUS UK has apparently contacted some UK sites to say that the EB1501 is shipping as of today; meanwhile the NetbookReviews team spotted that
Play.com had updated their pages
with a "due for release on 27/11/09". All well and good, but a quick check of the site today shows the release date has disappeared and the nettop is showing up as "out of stock".
ASUS UK have been in touch to tell us that the EB1501 is indeed shipping today in the UK, and that they've been in contact with the retailers to ask them to update their listings.
