Asus Eee PC 1000HG Announced

Asus Eee PC Another member of the The Asus Eee PC family has been announced – this time it’s the Asus Eee PC 1000HG, and it will be available in Taiwan, at least for now. No word on release dates for other areas.

Features include a Huawei 3G modem, allowing for HSDPA/HSUPA mobile broadband connectivity, including up to 7.2Mbit (HSDPA). EDGE/GPRS are also supported.

Outside of the mobile broadband connectivity, it looks similar to the Eee PC that it’s probably based upon, the 10″ Asus Eee PC 1000H.

– 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
– 160GB HDD
– 802.11b/g
– Bluetooth
– 6-cell Battery

Fudzilla lists a price of NT$18,988 (€439/$564 USD/£395), which may seem high compared to other models (especially the new Eee PC 1000HE), but there are no network subsidies for the mobile broadband modem, although it’s a given that there will be monthly data charges.
