ASUS is clearly determined to make its Eee portfolio reach as many users as possible. We've seen a myriad of new SKUs and initiatives from the company over these past few months and today, comes another.
What ASUS calls the 'Ultimate Travel Companion' is, its Eee PC 901 with 3.75G technology support. What makes this exciting is, in theory, high speed Internet access without being tied to wireless hotspots. With service providers taking up 3.75G HSUPA, it is believed that users will be able to rely on a high speed Internet access in many areas of the world.
The company appears to be pandering to the needs of frequent travellers and aims, to take the headache out of Internet access.
As can be expected, 3.75G support, together with operational speeds, will be dependent on the operator in question. Yet, this is a welcome step forward from ASUS and we should expect the first appearance of 3.75G to be in Eee PC 901 systems released to the market from October.
