PICTURED: Multitouch Eee PC With Swiveling LCD

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!

    That looks pretty sweet to me! Coming from Asus, it probably won't be too terribly overpriced, but will probably still be plenty expensive.

    Nice...and if they had a version with the N330 Atom @ less than $650 as an option that'd be really sweet too. One can wish.

    Great now just make this with the Atom 330 and Nvidia Ion chipset like the Eee PC 1201N has.

    Fabulous! I can see many uses for this. At least for me.

    Not something I could use, but it's a great innovation. Asus is really becoming a major innovator, applause for them!

    Not bad wish ( I like it) still I would give more priority over the battery life for this thing. If this commes with a comparable Asus 1005PE (which is aprox. 11-12 hours) this is clearly a tablet for a whole day.

    Well there goes half of the Apple iPad sales. Horray for ASUS and it's prompt response.

    B.T.W. ... Resistive Multi-touch. Do you think it's Stantum's technology?

    This seems to address a lot of the tablet PC's restrictions. I wonder how well built that swivel hinge is?
