Just a couple of days ago, Asus took some time at PEPCOM to announce a plethora of new hardware, ranging from netbooks to PCs. And while the announcement did well to let people know what was coming, Asus wasn't very clear on when each piece of new technology would find its way to the market, let alone where in the world they would be launching. If the Eee PC 1015PEM is any indication, then it looks like we won't have to wait long to start seeing the other announcements popping up.

The Aspire Revo 3700 looks to help those looking for the smallest boxes packing the latest tech inside.

When Intel announces that one of their chips will be appearing in a plethora of netbooks, we can understand why those netbook manufacturers might be slow to update their sites. Especially when the new chip is dropping into netbooks that, for all intents and purposes, are new themselves. For example, it was only the beginning of August that we told you about HP's Mini 5103, which --at the time-- featured Intel's single-core N455 or N475 processors. Well, it looks like that's about to change.
Back in March, we reported that Intel was moving forward into the "always-on" category of devices, and expanding their Intel Atom processors for devices like RAID arrays and NAS. Well, that was a long time ago, especially in the tech industry. So it goes as no surprise that Intel has just announced that they've got two new processors on deck and ready to get the job done. Welcome the Intel D425 and D525 to the Atom lineage.
In today's tablet market, the main competitor to the current kind of the hill, seems to be centered around the Android mobile Operating System. But, Pioneer Computers managed to go against the grain, and have unveiled their new DreamBook ePad tablet, which is set to launch in the Australian region later this year. Boasting plenty of features, we're left wondering if the DreamBook will ever make it to our neck of the woods.
Acer's plans for Android haven't been a secret, but we have to say that this little netbook, with just enough of Google's mobile Operating System (OS) on it to seem pretty interesting, is quite the treat. It utilizes Microsoft's Windows XP as the main OS, but then it has the ability to quick boot into Android. You'll be able to achieve this with Acer's configuration manager, which is pre-installed on the system.
Well, fancy that. Just after showing you a new Eee USB hard drive, we've got Asus showcasing a new, 10-inch netbook with the same branding. If you're looking for a new netbook, this new Eee PC model may be the next best choice, but then again, some of the features you'll find in this new model are pretty commonplace within the netbook market.
We are familiar with the Intel Atom line of CPUs from the proliferation of the processors inside netbooks and nettops. The processor finds its way into the other product types as well like mobile devices. A company called InHand Electronics has announced a new Atom-based mainboard called the FireFly.
