By the first quarter of 2010, ASUS will officially bring in its latest Smartbook device to the market. To be part of the ASUS’ famed Eee PC range, the upcoming Smartbook is expected to come loaded with integrated 3G WWAN and GPS. Plus, from what we gather, it will boast of a battery that would stay alive all through the day.

More details are yet to come by. However, we expect the ASUS Smartbook to be a product that has all the capabilities expected from such a device, and even more. For, ASUS is aiming for a top slot in the netbook market by pushing its research and development department to the limit.

The grapevine has it that the upcoming Smartbook would be an Android-based device. To sell for a price of around $180, ASUS might showcase the new device as one based on Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor. From what ASUS CEO Jerry Shen has said, the company is believed to be running the extra mile to make a perfect netbook that would beat the market.

But we will have to wait till the first quarter of 2010 to know if the company has indeed succeeded in its quest to added fame. Join us as we gear up for the launch date
