Asus has more products on the market today that you can shake a stick at. The company got its start long ago but for most of us here in the US the Asus brand only became familiar when the netbook craze took off. Asus is always adding new gear to its line of offerings and has a new Eee Note EA-800 device that will land in Taiwan this week. The device is designed to let users take notes using a tablet style device.

The tablet has a price that works out to $230. It has some very nice features as well with an integrated camera and mic that will let you record notes and take pics. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack so you can listen privately to things you record or music. The screen of the tablet is 8-inches, it has a resolution of 1024 x 768, and the battery promises 13.5 hours of continuous use.

The only downside to the device for folks looking for a cheap tablet alternative is that its screen is monochrome. The operating system for the device is Linux. The same Eee Note tablet will hit other countries ultimately winding up in the US in Q1 2011. I'm not sure about this deice, it's not far off in price from other tablets on the market right now with more capability.
