Asus confirms Eee phone

An Android-based talker?

Business security measures using SSL

It’s all systems go for the Eee phone, Asus has officially confirmed.

According to a report by the New York Times, the firm’s Chairman, Johnny Shih, said that the handset will be called, unimaginatively, the Eee Phone.

During an interview with the NYT about his thoughts on the future digital world – which is one where mirrors magically turn into TVs, apparently – Shih said that “Eee phone may become an interactive control”.

Sadly his statement says little else about the Eee phone’s functionality. Will it support 7.2Mb/s HSDPA and have a full touchscreen? Will it be thinner than a Post It, yet as strong as carbon fibre? Many questions remain.

The Eee phone won’t be Asus’ first mobile, though. It’s already unveiled “the fastest business PDA phone in the world” – the P565, which is powered by an 800MHz Marvell processor.

It’s rumoured that the Eee phone will run Google’s Android OS and hit the market in March. ®
