It looks like Asus has an unannounced variant of the Eee PC 1008 netbook up its sleeve. In documents filed with the FCC, we spotted this picture of a netbook described as the Eee PC 1008P/1008PGO. There’s not a lot of information about the laptop, but Asus tends to append the “GO” name to netbooks that have 3G wireless modems.
And if you zoom in on the only picture posted on the FCC’s web site, you can find some additional details which indicate that the Eee PC 1008P will have an Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drive as well as 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 and a 1.3MP webcam. It’s hard to make out the display details, but I’m pretty sure that like the Eee PC 1008HA, which is currently available, the Eee PC 1008P will have a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen.
It’s not clear whether the Eee PC 1008P and Eee PC 1008PGO are both headed to the US. So far most of the 3G-enabled netbooks from Asus have only been launched in Europe and Asia. But the fact that the company is showing the Eee PC 1008PGO to the US Federal Communications Commission is a good sign.
