A short while ago Asus announced plans to release a 10-inch EEE PC by years end, and now they're adding an 11-incher to the line up. This news comes on top of the announcement that Asustec is looking into the possibility of spinning off the EEE into an independent brand.
|Asustek Computer is considering making Eee an independent brand with a lineup products including the original Eee PC notebook, as well as the previously reported upon Eee TV (E-TV), Eee desktop (E-DT), and Eee monitor which are all expected to be introduced by the end of the third quarter this year, according to industry sources.
Through separating Eee as a sub-brand, Asustek believes the product family will be able to jump out of the low-cost market bracket.
In other news, in addition to the Eee PC 900, the company will launch the Eee PC 1001 with a 10-inch panel as well as an 11-inch model by the end of this year, market sources have revealed.
