SUS today added the Eee PC T91 to its highly-successful Eee PC line. This new model is the first to sport an 8.9″ swivelable touchscreen and a suite of touch-optimized software that enables users to get the most out of finger or stylus inputâ€”thus transcending the capabilities of previous generations of devices in its class. The Eee PC™ T91 was first unveiled at CES 2009 to tremendous buzz, and it is yet another example of ASUS outstripping its competitors in terms of being the first to market with cutting-edge innovations.
The Eee PC™ T91’s unique software applications, collectively known as TouchSuite, allow users to perform a myriad of fun tasks with their fingertips, such as touching up photos, creating photo albums, leaving handwritten desktop memos for loved ones, and sketching cartoons or custom emoticons. The Eee PC T91’s tablet PC functionality makes it easy to cradle in one arm, enabling users to read documents, scribble ideas into digital notebooks and surf the Internet while traveling on foot. The Eee PC T91 is also equipped with a TV tuner* and Global Positioning System (GPS) for extensive entertainment options and advanced navigation capabilities on the go.
The Eee PC T91 is available in Black and White to match different moods, personalities and lifestyles. A key benefit of the Eee PC™ T91’s touchscreen and tablet PC form factor is the flexibility they afford users. No longer must the device be used on a flat plane such as a table. With the Eee PC™ T91 folded flat like a slate, users will be able to use it comfortably while standing up. Users will be able to read notes, sketch ideas directly onto the screen, chat on IM, surf the Internet, and play games while walking. Furthermore, the Eee PC T91 accepts fingertip input and handwriting, ensuring that scrolling through documents and keying in text are simple affairs.FotoFun allows users to flip through, organize and edit their photos via a customizable photo album interface. With just the flick of a finger, users can perform tasks such as adjusting image brightness, zooming in and out, and adding beautiful overlays such as frames. Users can even upload their edited pictures to popular photo-hosting websites conveniently via FotoFun.Forgetting important appointments is a thing of the past with Memos. Memos allows users to jot down handwritten notes which can then be ‘stuck’ on the desktop. Users can even send interactive memos across Eee PCs . For example, a memo sent from a son’s Eee PC T91 reminding his father to see the doctor will appear on the father’s Eee PC T91.Touch Gate takes ease of use to a new dimension by enabling users to switch between different user interfaces on the fly. Users can choose from XP Mode, which is the standard Windows XP interface with the addition of a convenient application dock; Widget Mode which displays a plethora of information in neat, easily-organized widgets; and Touch Mode, a streamlined interface featuring large icons that makes it extremely easy for users to launch programs with their fingers.
