Asus plans new Eee PC models

New models to have smaller panels but larger keyboards

According to daily IT newspaper, DigiTimes, Asustek Computer plans to launch new Eee PC models - 904 and 905 in the market.

The new models will have an 8.9 inch panel as opposed to the 10.2 inch screens that can be found on the Eee PC 901. While most other specifications will be similar to the 901, another major difference is that the Eee PC 904 and 905 will have a bigger keyboard to make typing more convenient.

They will also adopt Intel Atom processors (formerly called Diamondville) that were specifically designed for low-cost laptop PCs, ultramobile PCs, Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and other small devices aimed at connecting to the Internet.

Asustek Computer plans to keep the competition alive by releasing the new models at a similar price range as the Eee PC 900 and 901, eventually replacing them.
