The Asus Eee PC T101MT convertible touchscreen tablet-style netbook continues its slow crawl toward general availability. There’s an official product page for the tablet on the Asus web site, complete with pretty pictures and detailed specifications. And while there’s still no release date available for the US yet, French site Blogeee reports that the Eee PC T101MT will be available in France by April.
According to Asus, the notebook will be available with Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, or Home Premium. It has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display with a swivel that allows you to fold it down over the keyboard for use in slate mode. The T101MT comes standard with 3 USB ports, 1VGA port, mic and headphone jacks, and an SD card slot and 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1. It has a 35Whr battery that Asus says should last for up to 6.5 hours.
The Windows 7 Starter version of the netbook will come with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive, while the Windows 7 Home Premium model has 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. It looks like the notebook will be available in black or white.

The Eee T101MT is already on sale at qbitonline. It is priced at about US$580. The only drawback is that it is only available in Chinese, but at least it has worldwide warranty.
Are you sure that qbit has it in stock? They’re using a promotional picture
for the Asus Eee PC T91 — not even the more recently released Eee PC T91MT.
The photo is T91 but they do have the T101MT in stock. They dropship direct from Asus…they just post the info that Asus provides them with.
To heck with the iPad! This is the tablet I’ve been wanting for quite awhile. I can definitely see replacing my Asus 1000HE with this as my everyday carry machine. I will mmake sure I get the Windows 7 Home Premium model though. BTW, I love this website. It opened up a whole world of netbook computing to me.
