Surprise, surprise—Asus is showing an upcoming Eee PC at the CeBit trade show in Hannover, Germany today. Who would've thought? The yet-unreleased Eee PC 1008HA perpetuates the unbridled explosion of Eee PC models by bringing a sleeker form factor, a redesigned shell, and some new connectivity options.
Asus tells us it's showing the system but not launching it, so we have few specifications to go by. The company has nevertheless revealed that the Eee PC 1008HA is 1" thick, weighs 2.4 lbs (1.1 kg), and has 802.11n, WiMAX, and "3.75G" wireless connectivity. In other words, this netbook should be able to tap into some of the speediest cell and wireless networks out there—provided 3G comes as standard in one of the retail models, of course.
Feast your eyes on the image gallery below for some high-resolution photos of the new system.
