Asus Reveals Eee PC T91 Tablet/Netbook Hybrid

For the longest while, Asus' Eee PC line has remained unchanged. New models have arrived, but none have looked drastically different than any that came before it. Recently, the company has been making strides to change things up, with the Eee PC 1008HA Seashell and this new T91 being exceptionally different. The Eee PC T91 is a convertible tablet PC, but in miniature form. In fact, it features a screen that's just 8.9", but that screen is touch-friendly.

Naturally, Asus bundles in an array of specially designed software here to take advantage of the touchscreen. The TouchSuite platform enables users to touch photos, create photo albums with your hands and leave yourself desktop memos. The machine is available in black or white, and unlike many netbooks, this one is equipped with built-in 3G WWAN technology and a GPS module, making this one of the more connected machines in the Eee PC line.

The included battery lasts you up to five hours in ideal circumstances, and the internal TV tuner even lets you catch OTA broadcasts right on your machine. Other specifications include the Atom Z520 CPU, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 1GB DDR2 RAM, a 16GB SSD, VGA, two USB 2.0 ports, a 3-in-1 multi-format card reader and integrated speakers. Asus has yet to reveal pricing, but it should ship in America within the next few months.
