Asus Adds HSUPA (3.75G) Capability to the Eee PC
Asus just announced that the Eee PC models will soon have 3.75G (HSUPA) connectivity. Starting off with the Eee PC 901, the 3.75G will enable high-speed Internet access anytime, anywhere. This practically means that users can now have access to the Internet even if there are no Wi-Fi hotspots since, connection will be enabled through mobile broadband network.
Mobile broadband network can give as much as 7.2 Mbps downlink and 2 Mbps uplink speeds. And users don’t have to worry about draining their battery life as well, since the Eee PC 901 is capable of providing 7.5 hours of good use. But of course, this will still depend on the users location, if HSUPA is already available.
The Eee PC 901 with 3.75G will be available sometime in October – onwards and will have the following specs:
- Windows XP OS
- 8.9-inch display
- Intel ATOM CPU
- WLAN, Bluetooth
- 1GB RAM
