ASUS CeBIT Launches

ASUS on Monday previewed its lineup for the CeBIT expo in March. Among the new announcements is the P2-M2A690G (pictured at left), the company's latest entry into barebones media PCs. The black, leather-effect case is said to fit into most home theaters and is the first to use Blu-Ray for high-definition video. Accordingly, an HDMI output ensures the next-generation disc format can play at its native 1080p. VGA for video and SPDIF optical audio output are also present in addition to a multi-format card reader.

Also new to the company's line for the German expo are the LS201 (right), a 20-inch widescreen LCD with an extremely high 2,000:1 contrast ratio and ambient lighting at the base; the Z801, a luxury flip-phone with a leather-bound shell and a scratch-resistant sapphire external LCD; and the P526, a variant of the earlier P525 with a smaller 2.6-inch LCD and Windows Mobile 6. More details should follow in the days leading to CeBIT's March 18th opening.
