Eee PC Maker Set For Mobile Phones
The company behind the small, low-cost Eee PC is now entering the mobile phone market, Forbes reported this week.
ASUS, the Taiwanese company that introduced the Eee PC last fall and has sold over a million units since, recently introduced the phone, called the P527. In a twist on the formula the phone, targeted towards business travelers, retails for $500-$600- more than the Eee PC itself.
That’s because it’s loaded with features: a touchscreen display, a camera, WiFi Internet, and even GPS. It can even work as a remote control for PowerPoint presentations, among its many Windows Mobile applications.
