Fate of future Asus touchscreen netbooks lies with Eee PC T91

July 20, 2009 at 11:35 am

Asus T101Asus recently launched the 8.9-inch Eee PC T91 convertible netbook in the US to mostly positive reviews. It is the company’s first touchscreen model and the first with a form factor that enables the netbook to be used as a tablet device too. It appears that the success of this particular model will impact the shape of future touchscreen models down the line according to a report from Digitimes.

Industry sources suggest that if the Eee PC T91 does not meet its sales expectations, then Asustek “may consider postponing the launch date of upcoming touchscreen netbooks, scale down their shipments, or even cancel them.” The only upcoming touch-based model we know of is the 10-inch Eee PC T101. The release date of the T101 has been pushed back to September, at the earliest, according to the report. This is two months later than originally anticipated.

We have heard the above before. Asus UK recently told us that the appearance of a multi-touch T91 and T101 would depend on the success of the T91. However, I’m inclined to believe that even if the model wasn’t a great success, Asus would still try and release another model based on Windows 7 and a multi-touch panel. After all, that would be an almost entirely different proposition to the model on the market today.

    I would like to inform the masess that it would appear that Purelygadgets do not use a real time stock system. Items that are supposedly In Stock don’t seem to get shipped quickly.The 8G Eee I purchased on 3rd March is still showing as Processing on their system and no delivery estimates were available from Customer Services.The In Stock status contravenes the Control of Misleading Advertisements Regulations 1988 as the OFT defines: An advert is misleading if it deceives or is likely to deceive its audience and affect their economic decision-making. This also applies if it harms or is likely to harm a competitor of the organisation placing the advertisement.An advert will be likely to affect the economic decision-making of readers if, for example, it persuades them to part with money. Please can I retract my suggestion to put them in the stock checker as I don’t want people to be caught out by the way this company behaves.

    Punk not dead JELLY FUN FACT: The guy with the tattoo that looks like a mosquito is Audrey Hollanders husband Otto Bauer. I find it interesting that he can watch some guy rub his balls and spit all over his wifes face right in front of him. How could you say I love you and sincerely mean it when you have watched your wife do some shit like this?
