From the BBC:
The lightweight and small Eee PC from Asus has been one of the tech hits of the last 12 months and more than 350,000 machines have been sold in the past thee months.
It has won admirers for its four gigabyte solid state hard drive, small form factor and attractive price. It runs the Linux operating system, but can also run Windows XP.
The company has now announced new models – 7, 8 and 9 inch – but crucially, they will have Wimax built in – giving it increased wireless capabilities.
In truth, there are not that many Wimax-enabled areas anywhere in the world, although 70 different countries are trialling it.
But Intel is betting heaviliy on Wimax as the winning next generation wireless network and so Asus has taken the plunge – at least, in North America.
The entry level Eee with Wimax will cost about $999, according to reports.
Hmm… makes my £200 4G EEE a bit of a bargain!
