Eee PC 1008HA Appears and Disappears on NewEgg Product Site
Chris of Netbook Reviews tipped us that he saw a product listing of the upcoming Eee PC 1008HA at Newegg.com. The product listing showed that the Eee PC 1008HA was supposed to retail for $429 at the online retailer. Also the Newegg was supposed to start shipping the Eee PC 1008HA on May 18. This was despite the fact that no US release date has been announced by Asus yet.
Interestingly, a moment after, Chris also found out the the link has been deactivated. The product page is still up, but a note was added that says, “This product is no longer available.”
Could this be a case of miscommunication on the part of Newegg and Asus? Is Asus planning to announce a new price for the Eee PC 1008HA? We’re inclined to believe that we will all find out soon.
