ASUS has announced the latest Eee PC T91 which features an 8.9-inch swivel touchscreen display. Combined with ASUS TouchSuite software, you can easily view your photos – zoom in/out or browse with your fingers – and even handwrite memos or sketch a drawing onscreen.

Taipei, Taiwan, June 1, 2009 – ASUS has added the Eee PC™ T91 to its highly-successful Eee PC™ line. This new model is the first to sport an 8.9-inch swivelable touchscreen and a suite of touch-optimized software that enables users to get the most out of finger or stylus input—thus transcending the capabilities of previous generations of devices in its class. The Eee PC™ T91 was first unveiled at CES 2009 to tremendous buzz, and it is yet another example of ASUS outstripping its competitors in terms of being the first to market with cutting-edge innovations.

The Eee PC™ T91’s unique software applications, collectively known as TouchSuite, allow users to perform a myriad of fun tasks with their fingertips, such as touching up photos, creating photo albums, leaving handwritten desktop memos for loved ones, and sketching cartoons or custom emoticons.

The tablet PC functionality also makes it easy to cradle in one arm, enabling users to read documents, scribble ideas into digital notebooks and surf the Internet while traveling on foot. The Eee PC™ T91 is also equipped with a TV tuner and Global Positioning System for extensive entertainment options and advanced navigation capabilities on the go. (Note that the availability for the TV tuner and GPS feature vary by country and model).

The Eee PC™ T91 is available in Black and White to match different moods, personalities and lifestyles.
