Asus Eee PC 701 to take on the Foleo and NanoBook

Boy, the Foleo sure is going to have some tough competition. First Via shows off their smaller and lighter device that runs Windows, now Asus is wanting some of the action.

The Asus Eee PC 701 (can you really stack three e’s together to make a name?) is a 1.9 -pound ultraportable/UMPC hybrid with a 7-inch screen and a full keyboard. It will see 512MB of RAM and a SSD drive ranging from 4-16GB. Other niceties include built-in wireless, mic and webcam.

No word yet on pricing or availability. Hopefully we’ll see this one hit a similar pricepoint as the Foleo and NanoBook.
