Touchscreen version of Asus Eee PC 900 getting more possible

These news are inline with my conversation with Jerry Shen.

Continue reading..

He told that they have been testing touch on Eee and but they have not decided if there is going to be a touch screen version in future. They have been testing and developing a touch optimized version of the current Linux build too, but again, they may not release it.

He tested my touchscreen Eee PC and we talked about the possibility of making one version with touch.

Now Digitimes is reporting that Kevin Lin, vice president of Asustek's sales department, said that there will be a touch version and "GPS support"

It might be that this GPS dongle on this picture is the "GPS support"

I'm glad to hear things are looking up for the touch screen. It's really the only feature that *needs* to be hacked in if it's wanted. Bluetooth, GPS, and extra storage can all be added through USB or the SDHC slot.

This could end up being the perfect Ubuntu Mobile device.
