Asus is showcasing how 3.5G-equipped Eee PCs running Windows 7 allow users to reap the benefits of high-speed mobile broadband connectivity at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona.
These Eee PCs will be among the world?s first to boast 3.5G capabilities designed around Windows 7 mobile broadband architecture.
Enabling the Eee PC?s 3.5G connectivity is Huawei?s high performance EM770 embedded module, one of the world?s first 3.5G embedded modules developed for Windows 7.
For the purposes of the demonstration, Asus installed Windows 7 Beta in two of its latest 3.5G-equipped Eee PC models: the Eee PC 1003HA and Eee PC T91. The Eee PC 1003HA is a slim t device with a 10" LED-backlit display that comes with 160GB of hard disk storage and an additional 10GB of online Eee Storage. It is slated for sale exclusively through telecommunications carriers. The Eee PC T91 features a rotatable touchscreen and a suite of touch-optimized programs that enable users to browse through photos, create digital scrapbooks, scribble handwritten desktop memos for loved ones and much more.
Still on the topic of wireless connectivity, ASUS also revealed that it has an Eee PC with both WiMAX and Wi-Fi capabilities on the horizon. The Eee PC 1000HG will feature IEEE 802.16e, WAVE2 and Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n support in the 2.4GHz~2.7GHz and 5.1GHz~5.8GHz bands.
