The intrepid sleuths at Netbook Italia noticed something interesting on the Asus support web site recently. The company has support pages for two previously unannounced models, called the Eee PC R101 and Eee PC R105.
There’s not much information about the new models aside from the fact that they’ll have Intel Atom Pine trail processors, WiFi, and Bluetooth — a lot like pretty much every other netbook Asus has introduced since January.
I checked with Asus and it doesn’t look like these models will be available in the US. Most likely they’re localized versions of existing products such as the Eee PC 1001P and Eee PC 1005PE. It’s not clear what part of the globe these models are destined for.
