Asus Set to Launch Mobile Internet Device
Major motherboard maker Asus has had great success with recent forays into other areas of the personal technology market, most notably with their ultra-portable Eee PC. Continuing with the small, portable theme, Asus is set to release its R50 mobile internet device sometime before June 2008. The R50 will measure a miniscule 5.6 inches, and will be available in either Linux or Windows Vista flavors. Asus is set to release an updated version of the R50 in November 2008, which will include a keyboard. Estimated retail price is expected to be around $500.
