Unlike popular consumer tablets such as the iPad and Galaxy Tab, which offer colorful multitouch-capable screens and thousands of apps, the Eee Note uses a stylus and a proprietary OS to focus on providing a better writing and drawing experience. Right now, the $250 device is only being sold in Taiwan, where it hit store shelves earlier this month."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1293750664.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>I think 2011 is going to be there year of 1000 tablet launches, in all shapes, sizes, and functionalities...and by the end of the year most of them will be abandoned. Companies want to see what "sticks" with the market, so they're throwing a bunch of darts at the dartboard and hoping one will hit a bullseye. For me, the Eee Note EA800 is a miss - but maybe in some vertical markets (education, etc.) it might be a hit. You?</p>
