Lucky Andrew at NotebookReview got his hands on an Eee PC…
As for software:
You can browse the web using Firefox, use Skype with the built-in web cam and microphone, open Word and Excel docs and edit them, view photos, listen to music files, use AOL IM, MSN messenger or just about any other major chat client via Kopete. In other words, all the basic functions you perform on a PC you can do on the EEE PC.
I have a few issues with the device myself. Firstly, there’s no Bluetooth so for me its hotspot-portable but not mobile. Secondly, if the build quality is low, it certainly won’t be mobile. My other question is, can you add a hard drive? If not then its not going to be competition for the VIA Nanobook variants.
Andrew also reports that the base price could not be $250 and we’ve already heard that its going to be 200 pounds in the UK and 299 Euro in Spain.
