Asus Press Release

Asus has released official specifications of the R2H:

  • Intel Celeron® M ULV Processor (900MHz)
  • Genuine Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition
  • Onboard 256MB, DDRII 533, 1x SoDimm socket for expansion up to 768MB DDRII 667 DRAM support (this is a weird number)
  • 7" WXGA touch screen LCD, ASUS Splendid Video Intelligent Engine
  • PATA 1.8" HDD 4200PRM 20/30/40/60 GB
  • Bluetooth® V2.0 + EDR, 3x USB, 1x SD Card-Reader, 1x GPS, 1x Finger Print Reader
  • 23.4 x 13.3 x 2.8cm, 830kg
I make it bold those points that I think are important. The whole machine is not bad but I would prefer to see a 2.5" HDD at 7200 RPM. Also, I don't know how you can get 768 MB of Memory in one socket because as far as I know you can buy 128, 256, 512 and 1 GB memory cards. 512 + 256 MB is 768, so it seems to me that this is the maximum of memory that can be reached in this machine, no 1 GB like in eo and Q1s. Combaning the memory slot and the onboard memory if the slot supports the 1 GB chip them the total is 1.25 GB of RAM but this is not what I can see from this press release.

I have not found any words about when the R2H will be available in the market and what is going to be the price of them. The whole text of Asus Press Release can be found here.


  1. I love it... Very mutch.
    My new EO ? Yes !

  2. Ctitanic, ASUS left off the 1.3 megapixel webcam from the feature list. In addition, it doesn't mention the built-in wireless, nor the network and video connectors. Putting all this together, I too wonder if there's more to the memory story than what's currently shown on the ASUS site.

  3. Yep, the battery spec is missing too :-)

  4. that means that they did not reach the 3 hours mark.

  5. "Onboard 256MB, DDRII 533, 1x SoDimm socket for expansion up to 768MB DDRII 667 DRAM support (this is a weird number)"

    What it means is that there is 256mb of RAM on the board, not on a SODIMM slot, and that there is one SODIMM slot that you can use to add more RAM (up to 512mb). 256Mb onboard + 512mb on the SODIMM slot = 768Mb.


  6. 768 still a weird number. Usually OEMs sell devices with 128, 256, 512 and 1 GB. ;)
