Asus R50A - R2's Next Generation

For those who think an Eee PC isn't small enough, Asus is already preparing R2's successor.

According to Asus,
The R50A is the first UMPC that reaches the full potential of the platform. Only with the R50A do users get GPS, a webcam, 3G/ 3.5G connectivity, and full notebook functionality, making the R50A the one indispensable gadget for everyone.
Some reports indicate it will have an advanced pen/stylys with erase capability as well as left/right mouse button clicking.
As expected, inking has not been forgotten either:
With ASUS InfoPen software, users can record and edit on the R50A’s 1024 x 600 screen as easily as they could on a piece of paper
Specifications are expected to be:
  • Menlow based ( 900Mhz Intel )
  • 4.8″ 1024 x 600 touch screen
  • Wifi, BT, 3G e 3,5G
  • TV tuner
  • GPS
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Webcam
  • Speakers/Mic
  • Mouse pointer and d-pad
  • 160 mm x 85 mm x 20 mm
  • No Keyboard

With all the previous experience Asus had with the R2 series, one would expect this to become one of the best UMPCs of all times.
(Don't forget Apple has chosen Asus for manufacturing their future Tablet PC, the iPad! :)
