    Anyone hear anything about the Asus R50A or R70? Seems like nothings been going on since January. I did hear the the FCC has approved the device.

    I've been looking for a 5-8" screen UMPC/slate tablet that can fit into a Lab coat pocket with a battery life > 4 hours.

    Havnt heard anything for awhile...I think Asus is focusing more on milking their EEE brand these days...

    Might want to take a look at the Aigo P8888W/P8860 and the Viliv S5. I have a feeling those will come stateside before we see Asus release the R50a here

    Mr_bankai is right. Asus has mainly tried to concentrate on their eee line because of its growing popularity.

    no offence to you people or anything... but I have been wondering how you guys can actually use such a small laptop for a, well, a laptop.
    hmmm seeing the R50A... it looks like a psp or a gaming handheld.

    I would love to find something where I can consult medical texts, etc quickly and has a screen bigger than a pda and still fit inside my lab coat pocket. Laptops wouldn't cut it.
