Eee PC 901 is live in Taipei.

Updated on 02 June 2008 by

Hold your Eee PC 900 orders because the 901 is coming! It’s just been shown-off at a WiMax conference in Taipei and PCWorld picked up the details.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will standard features of the 901, and a WiMax version is planned as well. Black and white versions of the 1.14 kilogram laptop were on display, which has a battery life of four to six hours, Asustek said. Pricing was not disclosed.

4 hours on a 4-cell battery. 6-hours on a 6-cell battery perhaps? The 901 will feature the same 12G/20G flash option on the XP and Linux versions respectively but it’s not clear if the flash is split into the same 2-partition setup that makes XP difficult to manage on the 900.

Lots more details are sure to be coming up in the next 24 hours. I’ve just been in touch with Sascha of and he’s already made contact with the ASUS guys. News soon!

    I wish it is 4-6 hrs for 4 cells, otherwise it does not worth over the 900.

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few weeks i will be launching my own site, i’m not great with designs but i really like the style of your site so it would be cool if i could find (or pay for) something with a similar look. :) Thanks!
