ASUS tonight in Las Vegas at their press event at CES showed a new convertible netbook with multi-touch.  The device was a prototype and actually failed during the touch demo.  It looks like it has an 8.9-inch screen and a pretty decent keyboard.  We’ll get more details as they become available.

  1. Looks like the size of my Gigabyte M912 which is nice size for travel. Keep us posted how well the multi touch works if they get that to work. Almost feels like we are at the show, just looking at these post.

  2. This does look pretty awesome. The keyboard looks to maybe be a bit bigger than the current crop of 8.9″ screens?
    Thanks.

  3. I don’t know what to say other than, “I want it”.

  4. Dream machine for me. I enjoy my Toshiba Tablet and have been eyeing the netbook form factor quite enviously. Can’t wait for more info…

    Enjoying your tweets from CES, btw!

    They made it clear this is still a prototype. Probably why they had trouble with it in the demo.

  6. Damn that keyboard. This is so close to the perfect device. Why can’t asus fix that right shift key issue?

  7. They are the bigger model. ;) And they still might on this one yet… cross your fingers!

  8. THIS IS IT… THIS IS IT… THE UMPC/NETBOOK I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR… I’VE BEEN WANTING A UMPC FOR 3 YEARS BUT THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN EXACTLY RIGHT. THIS MIGHT WELL BE MY FIRST UMPC PURCHASE. I hope the pricing isn’t above £400 otherwise it’s a no go and i’ll stick to my much more powerfull notebook which i got for £370.
