ASUS Touchscreen Eee PC

ASUS is developing a touchscreen version of its successful Eee PC micro notebook, according to alleged tips from part suppliers in its home region of Taiwan. The companies reportedly say that the first major update to the Eee will not only bring larger screens but will include a resistive touchscreen in a 9-inch model that offers basic pressure-based input to the small computer; the feature will only add about $15 to the manufacturing costs, says one of the claimed sources.

The apparent leak also appears to confirm earlier reports of 8-inch and 10-inch Eee PCs, although these are both expected to go with view-only LCDs. ASUS is understood to be providing at least one of these models with 8GB of flash memory and revealed at CES that it will bring a WiMAX-enabled Eee PC to the US for use on Sprint's Xohm network in April. Whether the computer builder will launch additional models at the same time is unclear.
