Asus EeePC2

Asus is rumoured to show it’s next gen version of the very popular EeePC at CES and one of the upgrades that it will almost certainly have is WiMax wireless broadband connectivity.

It may also come with an 8.9in screen replacing the current model’s 7in display if a number of Asian news reports from the last few days are to be believed.

Asus itself said it will show off Eee PC 2.0 at CES and has invited a bunch of people to their stand for a bit of a show-and-tell.  The meeting in the Asus arena is said to focus on WiMax, and while the wireless technology is likely to dominate, the presentation will also include “next-generation mobile solutions (including the next-generation Eee PC)”.
