ASUS Eee PC sales top 4 million, Touch Eee PC coming in Q1 2009

Posted on Friday, October 24 2008 @ 06:13:31 CEST by

LaptopMag had an interview with ASUS CEO Jerry Shen about netbooks. Shen unveils ASUS has sold four million Eee PCs to date, and he hopes to top 5 million by the end of the year. He also confirmed touch-enabled Eee PCs are on the way, these models are expected by early 2009.
Windows 7 is really being touted for its multi-touch capabilities. Can you share any plans for touch Eee PCs?
Some of the models will have this function next year, but not all the models. The touch function has its advantage but also some disadvantages. The machine will have to be thicker if it has touch and we want to have slim machines still.

Would you go with a tablet convertible form or build touch also into the normal laptop form?
We are considering both. We are considering a tablet one and also a different alternative and form but we cannot talk about the details. We plan to talk about it in Q1 of next year.
