EEE PC T91 for just $549! – ASUS to redefine the price range of Tablets?

Looks like ASUS is really going to make the tablets finally popular among the consumers. Let’s face it, tablets have always been confined to the executives and businessmen. The main reason that the tablets were not received nicely in the consumer market was due to high ‘price’. But, with the $549 price tag, ASUS has hit the sweet spot between functionality and price.

Also, we have heard that ASUS has added few really exciting utilities that are very finger friendly. This is already looking like a winner to me.

Here are full specifications:

Samsung N120 not as wide as expected – full specifications revealed

When we first heard about the Samsung N120’s claim that it features not 90% laptop size keyboard, but 100% laptop size keyboard, our initial thoughts were that the N120 is going to be a really wide netbook. But as per Samsung N120 official webpage, the dimensions are 10.27″(w) x 1.19″ x 7.3″ . To give you a better idea of the width, here are the dimensions of the ASUS EEE 1000H: 10.47″(w) x 7.53″ x 1.50.

This means that the N120 is infact smaller width-wise. Now, how did they manage to put in a full laptop keyboard in there? Or is it may be just a new marketing idea by Samsung.
