Announced: Kohjinsha E8

Kojinsha E8 Aving USA also announced that on February 29th, 2008 (yes, it’s a leap year), the Kojinsha E8 would be made available, for between 500,000 and 600,000 KRW (approximately $530 – $630 USD). This is a device that is competing with the Asus Eee PC, with the advantage of having a touchscreen and a 40GB hard drive (which comes at the higher price in comparison to the Eee PC). This is probably only going to be available in Korean markets initially (it is a Korean company). Hopefully it will make its way elsewhere (including North America).

Some of the specifications:
– AMD Geode LX800 (up to 500MHz on a 200MHz FSB)
– 512MB Memory
– 40GB Hard Drive
– Windows XP
– Touchscreen display with resolution of 1024×600 (probably 7″)
– Up to 3.5 hours of battery life.

Once we have more details, we’ll post them.

Correction: This should be “Kohjinsha”
