Rumors never stop

 

Asus's Eee PC has been filling the story pages since it was released last year. Asus also confirmed during CES 2008 that the new 8-inch and 8.9-inch models are going to be released. But as rumors never cease, according to Digitimes, Asus is also considering a 9-inch touch panel equipped Eee PC.

Digitimes is reporting that according to "sources at touch panel and related component makers" companies are sampling their products in order to bid as manufacturer of Asus's new generation Eee PCs. According to their source, a 10-inch Eee PC might also be released. The more interesting 9-inch touch panel Eee PC will use four-wire resistive touch screen technology, which will add touch panel functions for under $15 USD in BOM (Bill of materials).

These variations might end up a bit more expensive then the original 7-inch 8G model, but touch panel functionality sounds great.
