ASUS Planning Eee PC Hard Drive, Optical Drive, and 3G Card
ASUS, you crazy company, you. Not only did we hear news this week of a new ASUS Eee PC 1000HD, but it looks like some new Eee PC accessories are coming on the scene. Why not add more accessories to the seemingly already-huge Eee PC family? We don’t have any official announcement on these and we don’t know whether they will ever come to the U.S., but these pictures, first posted by our friend Sascha at EeePCNews.de, look very legitimate. The first accessory is an Eee PC external hard drive (or Eee Drive). From the pictures, the black glossy square drive has an extending USB port. Perhaps this will come bundled with smaller SSD versions of the system, or it will just be an added upgrade for those have used up all their mini-notebook space. Also appearing on the scene is an external Eee PC optical drive (or Eee Writer). Not much to say about this but it sure will help with the restore discs that ASUS provides in the Eee PC boxes. Saving the best for last, ASUS has come up with a branded 3G connection card called the T500. The card seems to fit into a USB port.
