Asus released a R2H UMPC and the R1H Tablet PCs. The UMPC has a 7-inch touchscreen and the tablet PC features a 13-inch display. Both are based on Intel's Core 2 platform.
According to market sources, the R2H is priced at higher than US$1,000 per unit, in contrast to a unit price of about US$500 targeted by Microsoft, which has been pushing for a UMPC standard with Intel.

Targeting the in-car segment, Asustek aims to ship a combined total of 3,000 units of the R2H UMPCs and the R1H tablet PCs a month, Benson Lin, president for Asia-Pacific at Asustek, was quoted by the Commercial Times as saying.
