Pesky Flash disks...

Waiting for the 8GB Eee PC? Then you're going to have to wait a little longer - until April at least, it has been alleged, thanks to problems Asus is having getting the machine out of the door.

What those problems are, Chinese-language paper Economic Daily News doesn't say, simply stating that the 8GB Eee PC has been delayed to Q2.

Plenty of retailers are listing the 8GB Eee PC but of the many we looked at this morning none had stock and were taking advance orders only.

EDN also claimed that Asus has lowered its Q1 Eee sales forecast from 1m units to 700,000, presumably thanks to all those 8GB models it will now not sell until Q2. The paper attributed the claim to sources within Asus.

According to DigiTimes, Asus itself has admitted it discovered some issues with the Flash drive used in the 8GB Eee.
