Asus showed off two upcoming Eee PC Touch models at the CeBIT 2009 trade show in Hanover, Germany. The Eee PC Touch T91 is a tablet PC, and has a 9-inch touchscreen that can swivel. The Eee PC Touch 1008HA has a 10-inch display.

The Asus Eee PC Touch is touchscreen-driven like the iPhone, but has no equivalent of the Apple device's multitouch interface.

The Asus Eee PC Touch has a special overlay for Windows XP, which allows it to be operated by pointing with a finger.

The Eee PC Touch has large icons to make it easier to operate as a touchscreen device.

You can rotate the Eee PC Touch's screen, as on a tablet PC.

Unfortunately, the Asus machine has a highly reflective display.

Asus offers the Eee PC Touch with a 10-inch or a nine-inch screen.

Both Eee PC Touch models come in a white finish.

The 10-inch model has a more ergonomic keyboard than the nine-inch version, because the space between keys is greater.

The Eee PC Touch runs Windows XP Home. The touchscreen is activated by pressing the silver button on the lower left-hand side of the screen frame.

Asus offers an integrated notepad application to speed up input with the finger.

Asus will deliver the nine-inch model in May, with the 10-inch version to follow. Prices for the two machines have yet to be confirmed.
