The Asus Eee note EA800 isn’t yet available for purchase in the US, but it’s already selling in Taiwan. We’ve already seen this little note-taking tablet unboxed. Now the folks at Laptop Magazine have published their detailed impressions. It’s not quite a full review (that’s coming soon), but it’s pretty close.

In a nutshell, the Eee Note looks like an eBook reader with a grayscale display, but it has a high resolution screen and comes with a stylus for pressure-sensitive input that makes it easy to draw or create handwritten notes. You can also surf the web, record audio notes, or take photographs with the tablet.

According to Laptop Magazine, the device appears to get excellent battery life and does a pretty good job of storing your notes — although it would be nice if there were better ways to organize your notes on the tablet.

On the down side, notes are stored as GIF images and there’s no way to convert your handwritten notes to text on the device, which could be a deal-breaker for some users.
