I’m starting to suspect that Asus will never release another new product that doesn’t bear the Eee PC name. Take the company’s new handwriting pad, designed for use with the Eee PC. It looks like the pad is almost the same size as an Eee PC, which sort of defeats the purpose of carrying an ultraportable laptop around. But if you prefer the stylus to the keyboard (and don’t want to hack your way to touchscreen nirvana), it looks like Asus has you covered.

The upcoming handwriting pad is compatible with the Eee PC version of Xandros Linux, supports English and Chinese (traditional and simplified) inputs, and plugs into your USB port.

Oh yeah, and can anybody come up with a good reason why this thing looks like a Sega Dreamcast controller?
