Nvidia ION 2We still don’t know exactly how Nvidia plans to introduce its ‘next-generation’ ION chipset/GPU into Pine Trail netbooks, but despite that Digitimes is reporting that Asus is planning an ION 2 powered Eee PC to launch in April.

The report goes on to say that Pine Trail netbooks should drop in price by the end of the second quarter as N270/N280 Atom-based netbooks fall out of the market. It also said that the Eee PC T101 touchscreen netbook will launch in February.

    If the reports are correct, that the Ion 2 is a Geforce 310M, this could be a really nice netbook. My wife really likes her Lenovo S12. What would be really cool is a tablet based netbook with these components. It could use Integrated graphics when it is detached, acting like a tablet and Ion 2 graphics when reattached to the body/keyboard. Compete with that Apple!
