June's shaping up to be a pretty special month 'round here. In addition to whatever Apple's got up its sleeve and all the new gear set to announce at Computex
, Asus will be launching its Atom-based Eee PC 901 just like we heard
. June 3rd is the date for "a price below" $650. We assume that means $649.99. DigiTimes
' reliable market channel sources claim the 8.9-inch 901 will also feature Bluetooth for the first time (you know, without a hack
) while the rest of the tech specs remain the same. That's $250 more than the 10-inch, Atom-based, MSI Wind
running Linux and launching on the same day. Oh ASUS, what have you done?Update
: To be fair, it could be that the $650 Eee PC 901 model runs XP and the Linux-based Eee PC 901 will sell for (a lot) less -- the XP-flavor of the MSI Wind costs between $500 and $549.
