(ASUS) We Are FamilEee!

Asus has announced it is planning to launch a whole “family” of Eee products.

The new Eeefferings are to include the E-DT (DeskTop), E-TV and an E-Monitor.

This was announced by Jerry Shen, president of Asustek and he says that the new devices will apparently keep the same low-cost price points as the Eee itself.

The E-DT is a PC to be sold without a monitor and is scheduled to launch in April or May this year and will be showcased at CeBIT 2008.  The company has set the price of the PC at between $200-300, although it’s to keep nearer the $199 mark.

The E-Monitor will be an all-in-one device similar to Apple’s iMac and Dell’s XPS One (but cheaper).  It will come with a built-in TV tuner and will be aimed at the 19″ to 21″ market.  The price will be $499 and should be out in September.

The E-TV will enter the over 42-inch LCD TV market, but will integrate the Linux-based PC functionality of other Eee PC products.  The E-TV is also pencilled in for a September launch and you’ll be looking to pay “……..no greater than $200 more than TVs in the same class.”

The only downside of the announcements was that Shen revealed that the company’s market research points to the fact that a touchscreen on the Eee “is not a highly demanded feature” and it therefore has put that on the backburner.
