New Asus Eee PC 1005HA Seashell with removable battery planned?

May 13, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Asus Eee PC 1005HAAsus is looking to follow the Eee PC 1008HA Seashell with another netbook using the ‘Seashell’ brand name later this summer. The Asus Eee PC 1005HA will be very similar to the 1008HA in looks and specs but will come with a removable battery as opposed to the sealed battery found in the 1008HA.

A firm release date for this hasn’t been given, although we understand that it is expected to launch within the next couple of months. The ‘Eee PC 1005HAB’ is already listed on the official Asus support pages although there are no documents there for now.

A quick search on Google highlights a number of European retailers already listing the 1005HA-M for pre-order. According to the specs listed, the Eee PC 1005HA will come with a 6-cell (2200 mAh) Li-Polymer battery as opposed to the 4-cell battery in the 1008HA. This means that it will end up weighing 1.4kg as opposed to the 1.1kg for the 1008HA. This new Seashell will come with three USB ports as opposed to the two found on the 1008HA.

Other than that, the specs are the same. It has a 10-inch LED backlit display with resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It will be powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. Our sources indicate that the 1005HA could be priced as low as £349 on launch. The current European pre-order pricing is between €350 and €400. We’ll bring you more information on this as we have it.

    What we really need is the an 1008HA machine with an integrated 3G modem, especially since it’s easy to buy SIM only PAYG mobile broadband packages at “fair” prices. It beggars belief that something like it won’t come out soon.
