Asus going big(ger) with 11.6-inch Eee PC later this month
Tim Stevens writes that according to DigiTimes, Asus will be releasing an 11.6-inch Eee netbook by the end of this month.
“But, with the 7-inchers relegated to their place in history, perhaps now the company has a little extra room on its production lines. No further information is available on the forthcoming model at this point, but we’re hoping that new screen will get a few more pixels to fill out its new-found girth.”
“ Critics say VARs and MSPs generally don’t understand sales, marketing and strategic consulting. I beg to differ: The best VARs and MSPs already understand those three business elements, and they’ll be able to sell their businesses at far higher multiples than traditional resellers.”
“Register Hardware’s discovered yet more information about the rumoured handset, including its name and a full specification list. Unconfirmed sources cited by Engadget claim to have discovered that the phone will be called Eos and measure somewhere in the region of 111 x 55 x 10.6mm. The yet-to-be-released Pré measures 100.5 x 59.5 x 16.9mm and has a slide-out keyboard which the Eos lacks. Equipped with quad-band GSM and HSDPA 3G support, the Eos will also feature a 2.6in, 320 x 400 touchscreen.”
