It’s been almost a year since Asus first showed off a 10 inch Eee PC netbook with a touchscreen display that swivels and folds down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. But a variation of that netbook has finally made its way to the FCC, which could mean that release is imminent.
Wireless Goodness spotted a few documents related to the Asus Eee PC T101MT at the FCC web page this morning. There’s very little information about the netbook available in the filings, aside from the fact that the laptop will support 802.11b/g/n WiFi. But we can also surmise based on the MT in the name that the Eee PC T101MT will have a capacitative touchscreen display that supports multitouch gestures.
Given the fact that Asus has waited over a year to bring this notebook to market, I’m also going to go out on a limb and predict that it will have an Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor rather than the slower Intel Atom Z520 used in the 9 inch Eee PC T91MT touchscreen tablet or the Intel Atom N270 CPU found in most other Eee PC models. And I’m not the only one who thinks so.
