Australia’s Current is reporting that Asus will unveil a touchscreen “non-clamshell” version of the Eee PC at Computex.
But Current claims that their news comes directly from Asus Australia national retail manager Emmanuelle Silansu, who probably konws more than I do about the company’s plans.
Asus does have some experience in the tablet-style UMPC business. The company introduced the Asus R2H almost two years ago. But the R2H carries a price tag close to $1000. Presumably an Eee-branded UMPC would be significantly cheaper.
