While I wasn’t expecting the Eee PC 901 to get an official introduction until tomorrow when Computex begins, Asus went and surprised us by showing off its latest subnotebook at the WiMax Expo, which also happens to be in Taipei.

There aren’t a ton of surprises, but we can now confirm that the Eee PC 901 features:

  • CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom
  • Storage: 12GB SSD (Windows) or 20GB SSD (Linux)
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Display: 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel screen
  • WiFi: 802.11b/g/n
  • WiMax: Yup
  • Bluetooth: Uh huh
  • Colors: Black and White
  • Weight: 1.14 kg
  • Battery: 4-6 hours estimated battery life

Intel doesn’t officially unveil the Atom processor until tomorrow, so there’s probably won’t be any official word on pricing until then.
