The Asus Eee PC T101MT is a 10 inch tablet-style netbook with a touchscreen display that supports multitouch gestures. You can fold the screen down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode, or use the T101MT as a traditional laptop. The computer isn’t available for purchase yet, but Asus is expected to release the new model soon. And the company has posted a video on YouTube which shows some of the touch-friendly features of Windows 7 Home Premium as well as the custom software that Asus created for its touchscreen netbooks.
You can check out the video after the break. But in a nutshell, it looks like the Eee PC T101MT will come with the most of the same software that comes with the Asus Eee PC T91MT, the company’s existing 9 inch netbook.
The biggest differences between the two models is that the T91MT has a smaller screen and display and a slower processor. The Eee PC T101MT will pack a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor while the T91MT has a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU.

These all netbooks and tabletnetbookcomputers (and iPad too) with just 1024×600 resolution display are soooh awfull : ( Modern software won’t fit on that size and text reading is much less comfortable with such.
They should have 1366×768/1024 resolution display, like some of them do have.
Another significant difference is that the T101MT reportedly has a removable battery, which the T91 does not (huge booooo)
A tablet interface for the Mickey Mouse fan club.
Why oh why do user interface designers go for fancy-and-funny instead of simple-and-useful. Why can they not create something that is efficient to use and not only spectacular to showcase.
I really hate Apple but it seems they are the only company in the world that are able to create user interfaces that are actually useful.
Is Apple secretly paying the other UI designers to produce inferior designs?

Bread and circuses…
A couple new elements, but pretty much the same as the T91 software.
I had the T91mt and I think it was mostly a successful device.
Its biggest letdown was is slow processor. The screen was greatly improved on the T91mt over the original with multitouch and a more practical matte finish. Iam sure the fit and finish of the T101MT will be the same as the T91 which is a good thing. Although be prepared for a average stylus and very poor speakers (mine actually crackled a low volume).
I was holding out for this or the s10 but I decided to get the mini 5102 (getting it shortly). Hopefully I wont miss the convertible feature!
