Review on ASUS Eee PC 701

[26 October] Laptop Magazine ran a review on the ASUS Eee PC 701. After reading it, I totally agree with their view that “ASUS is forging a new class of device with the Eee PC. Yes, you can get a laptop with a bigger screen and better specs for the same amount of money, but this machine wasn’t designed to go toe-to-toe with bargain-basement Windows laptops. It’s an excellent secondary computer for households with children, and it’s a very good primary computer for novice PC users who never had the time or patience to master an operating system.” Think grannies or toddlers at home will love it.

[Updated: 31 October] A very nice review up from TweakTown, tons of pics and a good write-up, link here.

Joel Evans of Geek.com published the latest review of the Sprint Touch, an upgraded version of the HTC Touch and this upgraded version from Sprint do look sweet.

Processor-wise, it’s been upgraded from a TI’s OMAP™ 850, 201 MHz (HTC Touch) to a 400 MHz Qualcomm MSM7500 (Sprint Touch).  Pretty much the same processor as the HTC Touch Dual which features a 400MHz Qualcomm MSM7200 processor.  Memory-wise, it’s been upgraded from 64MB RAM and 128 MB ROM to 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM.

The TouchFLO UI been modified and now includes a 20-key and 12-key input options for the on-screen QWERTY keypad.  Additional quick-access icons been added to the homepage as well.  Other improvements includes bigger Close buttons and a bigger Start Menu.

My guess is we won’t see this upgrade version in Hong Kong as the upgraded specification is very close to the HTC Touch Dual, which is due to release in mid-November.  A real bummer as I think that this upgraded version do have its market here given its small size, form-factor wise and the fairly big group of non-3G users here in town.
