"Asus launched its Linux-based Asus Eee Note EA800 (previously Eee Tablet) e-reader, available now available in Taiwan for about $230 and due in the U.S. in 1Q 2011, according to various reports. The Eee Note has an eight-inch, 1024 x 768 monochrome display with Wacom touchscreen technology, permitting 2450 dots per inch (dpi) pen input.

"Asus announced the Eee Note EA800 in June under the name Eee Tablet. In August -- while announcing an Android-based Eee Pad EP101TC tablet, said to be due in March 2011 -- the company revealed that the Eee Tablet might undergo a name change to Eee Note, and would start selling in October for about $300.

"Asus may have missed its ship date by over a month, but the price is lower than expected, according to an IDG News story. The Eee Note will be available in Taiwan later this week for the suggested retail price of NT$6,999 ($228), says today's report."
