The 8.9-inch Asus Eee PC T91 convertible netbook hasn’t sold through the roof, but then perhaps that was always expected given that most people knew a multi-touch model would be released with the launch of Windows 7.
Whilst we’ve not too heard too much of this recently, it appears that Asus is planning to launch this model, dubbed the Eee PC T91MT (‘MT’ obviously standing for multi-touch). The eagle eyes over at NetbookNews.de spotted that the black and white models are available to pre-order at Amazon.de for €505.98 and will launch on October 22nd (coinciding with the Windows 7 launch date).
The T91MT will come with Windows 7 Home Premium and a 160GB HDD (instead of the 16GB flash drive found on the T91). I’ve not seen similar listings in the UK or US for now, although I’d be surprised if it wasn’t made available in those markets soon.
