PICTURED: Multitouch Eee PC With Swiveling LCD
You want a netbook but, for some strange reason, are hankering after one that is also a tablet. Well look no further, here we have a convertible Eee PC that is said to pack Intel's Pine Trail chip.
French language site, Blogeee, reports that this little baby will see an April release and is confident that there will be no delays. While the specifications are not yet solid, Blogee says we can expect a 10.1-inch backlit, 1024x600, LED display (resistive multitouch), the Atom N450, a choice of either 1GB of 2GB of DDR2 and up to 320 GB of storage (along with 500GB of Asus WebStorage). Both the RAM and storage depend on which version of Windows 7 you want (Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic or Windows 7 Home Premium).
The multitouch Eee PC also boasts 3 x USB 2.0 ports, VGA, a multicard reader, the obligatory 0.3 megapixel webcam, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 802.11b/g/n and will be available in black or white.
No word on price or a U.S. release but let us know if you're interested and we'll keep you posted!
