ASUS rumored to launch standalone Eee brand

ASUS rumored to launch standalone Eee brand

After Asustek CEO Jerry Shen revealed the company planned a 10-inch version of their runaway-success ultraportable, it looked as though the Eee roadmap was complete.  Now, a DigiTimes report suggests that, in an attempt to capitalise on the success of the range, they're considering splitting off the Eee as a separate brand.  In doing so, Asustek would be able to further develop the line-up without worry of treading on its own ASUS-branded toes.

ASUS Eee 10-inch version coming later this year

ASUS Eee 10-inch version coming later this year

According to CEO Jerry Shen, Asustek is planning another version of the low-cost ultraportable Eee series featuring the notebook's largest screen yet.  Having recently released the Eee PC 900, with its 8.9-inch display, ASUS is working on a 10-inch version that could be ready for release later on in 2008.  Shen cites customer demand for bigger LCDs and a desire for increased usability as being behind the company's decision.

"The feedback we've received from users has been great. Many have asked us for bigger screens and better usability. That's what made us start developing the Eee PC 900" Jerry Shen, CEO, Asustek

Asus 8GB Eee PC gets official

Asus officially announces 8GB version of Eee PC and plans to make it available in the first quarter of next year. The new version will feature 1GB Ram, 8GB flash storage, and an underclocked 900Mhz Celeron. I know many of you are hoping for the upcoming version to have 10-inch screen, but it won’t happened; Asus will keep the screen at 7-inch. Asus however, did not unveiled pricing on the new Eee PC, but told PC Pro, it will be relatively realistic price considering the specifications.

ASUS Eee PC for sale

ASUS Eee PC for sale

Sure enough, it’s finally for sale here in the US. The flagship 4GB model with half a gig of RAM, a 900MHz processor, and b/g wifi will run you $400. Honestly, that’s pretty much a jack, I mean Wal-Mart right now is selling a laptop with a 1.5GHz processor, half a gig of RAM, 60GB of hard drive space, and a 15.4” screen tack on a DVD burner, the same wifi as the Eee, and Vista Home and that makes the Wal-Mart PC not only a better performer, but $2 cheaper.

Sure, if it was really rugged, or if it looked really cool, it might be worth it. But anyone looking at a photo set of the laptop can see its fairly ugly, and there have been reports of this thing feeling a little like a milk jug running computer hardware. So why all the hubbub for an overpriced hunk of junk?

SlashGear Week in Review – May 18th

ASUS continued their assault on the budget computing market this week, with the Eee PC 900 finally launching in the US while its Intel Atom powered sibling the PC 901 broke cover.  We also saw a live photo of the Eee Box B202, a desktop version.  It looks as though the rumors of a separate Eee brand could be true; the ASUS logo is notable for its absence on the new products.  Meanwhile, OLPC and Microsoft finally shook hands on a Windows XP deal for the XO education notebook, and Fujitsu showed off their own Atom-based ultraportable, the U2010 UMPC complete with 3.5G WWAN and GPS.

SlashGear Week in Review – May 11th

This week's highlight has been the SlashGear team knuckling down to cover HTC's London launch of the Touch Diamond smartphone.  Our hands-on video of the Windows Mobile 6.1 device is pulling in some serious views, so if the thought of a 3G iPhone is leaving you cold then you need to be checking out the competition.

Meanwhile, budget ultraportables continued their onslaught, with pre-order pricing for both MSI's Wind and HP's XP version of the 2133 Mini-Note announced.  ASUS hasn't been letting the grass grow under them either, confirming that the Eee PC 900 will hit the US on May 12th.  Slightly bigger, word of Dell's upcoming Inspiron 1435, 1535 and 1735 ranges leaked, bringing with them some of the XPS' specs including optional 3G and Blu-ray.
