Over at CES 2008, there are rumors (likely to be true) that Asus will be releasing an Eee model with 8.9 screens this 2008. Sure, they’re also including WiMax in the possible specs, but it’s the screen size and real estate that most Asus Eee users are interested in.
This year at CES (the big technology show starting next week in Las Vegas) ASUS is planning to launch the new and improved Eee PC. According to the ASUS Web site and various tech blogs, the new Eee PC will feature WiMax and a larger 9-inch screen.
The WiMax bit isn’t so exciting for people in the UK and Asia as there are hardly any WiMax networks in place just yet, but the larger screen definitely gets our juices flowing. No more scrolling sideways to view pages or having to squint at documents.
Of course, the increased LCD size will likely lead to higher unit prices. Or, it could cause the older 7-inch screen models to drop in price. At any rate, this is a welcome development, and with a bigger screen, the Eee can be poised as a better competitor against its more expensive brethren from other brands (like Fujitsu, Sony and the like).
