The Asus Eee PC 1005HA Seashell netbook was officially announced last week by Acer France. The netbook now has its official product page listed on the Asus Global site including full technical specifications and official press shots.
Whilst the product page doesn’t explicitly mention two different 1005HA SKUs, as mentioned by last week’s announcement (1005HA-H and 1005HA-M), the specs do suggest that this will be the case. There is an option for N270/N280 Atom CPUs, a 1.3MP or 0.3MP webcam and two different 6-cell battery options.
This 1005HA will share a similar design to the 1008HA, hence use of the Seashell name, but sport a removable battery unlike the 1008HA. This means that it is slightly heavier (1.27kg vs. 1.1kg) and thicker (36.5mm vs. 25.7mm) than the 1008AH. The 3-cell battery option will weigh 1.1kg.
There is not too much new information, although it looks like the Eee PC 1005HA will come with the new Eee Docking software and SRS sound software. The specifications do not make it easy to determine which SKU will get which features. However, I imagine it cannot be too different to last week’s announcement. It will come in a choice of four different colours (white, black, pink or blue). The 1005HA-H will cost €349 in Europe and the 1005HA-M will cost €299.
