You remember that ASUS Eee Tablet that was unveiled back at Computex in June, right? Of course you do, it looked like a pretty great e-reader / note-taking gadget, but oddly we haven't heard a peep about it since. Obviously, the "tablet" with its 2,450 dpi touchscreen sensitivity and quick 0.1 second page turns missed its September release date, however, according to ASUS it's still kicking and is being renamed -- we hear Digital Note and Eee Note are potential choices. So, when will you finally be able to take notes on its 8-inch 1024 x 768 pixel panel? ASUS tells us that it will be demoed at CES and officially launched in the first quarter of 2011 -- although, it may be available in Europe slightly earlier depending on local content partnerships. No confirmation on that "under $599" price we had heard whispers of, but here's hoping we hear a bit more on this one before we touch down in Vegas.
