It looks like the Asus Eee PC 1018P is coming to America… eventually. The 10 inch netbook was introduced at CeBIT in Germany earlier this year, and today the folks at Wireless Goodness spotted a filing for the netbook at the Federal Communications Commission web site.
The Asus Eee PC 1018P comes with a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and either a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 or 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 processor. The netbook supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 and some models may ship with integrated 3G modules. you also get 1GB of RAM, up to 250GB of hard drive space, and a 44Whr battery.
The most physically distinctive aspect of the netbook is the brushed aluminum chassis. But there are a couple of nifty upgrades under the hood as well. The Atom N455 and N475 processors both support DDR3 memory. And the mini-laptop has USB 3.0 ports instead of the slower USB 2.0 ports found on most netbooks today.
