ASUS Shell at CeBIT

Taiwan's ASUS will demonstrate its super-thin 10-inch netbook, the Eee PC 1008HA Shell, at the CeBIT show in Germany that kicks off on Tuesday. The netbook was first seen last week, is expected to become the new flagship of the Eee PC range, taking over from the S101. No specific hardware information is yet known, though the new portable PC is expected to sport an industrial design while being thinner, more powerful and longer lasting than the existing flagship Eee PC netbooks.

The company will also show off the new S121 netbook, with two models available. A solid-state equipped version, with a capacity of 512GB, will cost a very high $1,649, while a model outfitted with a 120GB hard drive is due to cost $899. Other specs are not yet confirmed, but since the S121 is based on the current S101, it is expected to share the same 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, draft-N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 and a VGA webcam.

ASUS has announced some more specifics on its Eee Keyboard, which will be capable of connecting to a TV or projector wirelessly and sports an Intel Atom Z520 CPU and SCH US15W chipset, along with a Windows XP operating system.

No other information, including pricing or release, were announced for the products, though they are expected to appear during CeBIT this week. [via DigiTimes]
