The Asus Eee PC 1008HA netbook is already starting to hit the streets in the UK, but it won’t be available in the US for a few more days. But Chris at Netbook Reviews noticed that US retailer Newegg posted product pages for the new netbook yesterday afternoon. For a brief period of time, the site listed a price of $429 and a ship date of May 18th, but that information has been taken down, leaving just two pages with “deactivated items” for the white and black Eee PC 1008HA models.
Last I’d heard, the netbook was supposed to be available for pre-order on the 18th, so my guess is that the ship date was wrong and that Newegg wasn’t supposed to put these web pages online at all until Monday. But if you’ve got nothing better to do this weekend, you might want to try hitting refresh repeatedly to see what happens.
