The Asus Eee PC 1008P already made an appearance though the FCC, but it appears that Asus will also be launching the Eee PC 1005P, powered by the next-generation Intel Pine Trail chipset. The model number was spotted on the Asus support site, which means it’ll probably be a matter of time before it makes an appearance.
Also, according to the BIOS drivers it will also come with the instant-on OS from Asus called ExpressGate, which utilizes Splashtop. The instant-on operating systems haven’t really become a must-have feature in netbooks, but it looks like manufacturers are still trying to push them. Hopefully, we’ll hear more on the 1005P and 1008P netbooks at CES in January.
