Asus Starts Shipping the Eee PC Tablet for $499

We've been talking about the EeePC T101MT for a while now. With a choice of Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium, the device features a 10.1-inch touchscreen display that swivels around to convert the netbook into a tablet.

The device packs Intel's Atom N450 CPU (1.66GHz) and and GMA 3150 graphics. There's the option for up to 2GB of DDR2, as well as a 320GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 3 x USB 2.0 and an SDHC card reader.

Priced at $499, the device is in a similar price range as the Windows 7 version of the HP Slate PC and Apple's iPad.

    Looks like the best tablet offer I've seen so far. I still say there's not much point in tablets period, though.

    Whoa, if they could deliver a nice interface for the tablet mode then it would be one of the most interesting options out there. Also, it is going interesting to see how accurate the touchscreen really is.
