First spotted as a non-working prototype at CES in January, the ASUS Eee PC T91 might be shipping this week. Earlier this month, the convertible touchscreen Tablet PC/netbook appeared in the FCC database, which is generally indicative of product availability. Today, The Netbook Market caught wind of an EeeUser forum post that states shipments are starting today. ASUS has also added the T91 to their ever-growing Eee PC Comparison List as well.
The official listing shows the T91 with Microsoft Windows XP, but I’d expect Windows 7 to appear as an option due to the 8.9″ resistive display. The device only comes with a 16GB SSD option, but includes a 16GB “disk expander” SD card and 20GB of online storage from ASUS as well. ASUS figures the device should run for around five hours on the 28.5Wh battery paired with an Intel Atom Z520. It’s worth noting that the tablet includes 802.11n support like most of the newer Eee PC models and weighs only 2.12 pounds. That’s one light Tablet PC, perhaps the lightest convertible tablet yet!
