Asus is finally getting ready to unleash its first touchscreen netbook on the public. The company first unveiled the Eee PC T91 at CES in January. But it won’t be in UK stores until late May or early June at the earliest, reports Electric Pig. There’s no word on a launch date or price for the US or other markets, but Electric Pig says the Eee PC T91 will run about £449 in the UK.

That’s about $677 US, but there’s reason to believe the netbook will be cheaper in the United States. First, most computers cost less in the US than the UK. Second, we’ve already seen stores start taking pre-orders for the T91 for closer to $549 (although that pricing was based on guesswork and is subject to change).

The Asus Eee PC T91 features an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display that can be folded down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. It has a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU,  and a 5 hour battery. The netbook will weigh about 2 pounds and run Windows XP and a suite of touch-friendly applications designed by Asus.

  1. Either they’ve found a particularly dextrous newborn to point at the screen there, or this thing’s a bloater. Actually, given that it’s an 8.9 incher without too much of a bezel, I suspect a combination of Photoshop and forgetting people aren’t impressed if they make these things look larger than they really are.

    1. I held my hand – average female hand if a little stubby – in front of my Eee 701 and I think it’s a combination of the angle, which I was unable to perfect, and the hand model being a small-framed woman. Asus likely used an East Asian woman, being an East Asian company.

      Not saying that it’s not Photoshop. Just saying that I think it’s possible.

    2. Homo Floresiensis Live! I don’t know where they found the ‘living hobbit’ hand model but it sure makes a 8.9″ screen look big.

  2. Adding a touch screen doesn’t out weigh the tiny, oddly located right shift key. Why would they not have an updated keyboard?
