After last weeks announcement about a Windows XP option for the Asus Eee PC a few more details have come out. In an interview with Laptop Magazine, Jerry Shen, CEO of Asus, said that the new EeePC will be available in April and uses Intel’s 45nm ‘Diamondville’ processor, now named Atom. There will be a 8, 12, and 20 GB model. The 8GB will have the XP option the rest will still be Linux based. He also said there should be WiMax and 3G options by Q3. The latter depends on the cell carriers. Don’t hold your breath. Of course the biggest news here is the possibility of multiple colors. Why does the least import thing always get emphasized? Unless it come in 1970’s General Motors metalic green I don’t care!
