Asus, in collaboration with Intel and RCom, today launched the eee PC 101H in India at a subsidized price of Rs 9,999. The 10.1-inch netbook runs on Intel’s MeeGo operating system and will come bundled with RCom’s NetConnect USB modem. Consumers will have to pay an upfront amount of Rs 12,499 and will get monthly discounts amounting to Rs 2,500 on their RCom modem bill spread over a few months. The 101H runs on an Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.66GHz, 1GB of DDR RAM and a 2.5-inch 250GB SATA hard drive. Asus has pre-installed its app store from where users will be able to download apps for MeeGo. It comes pre-loaded with Open Office and DropBox with 2GB of online storage. We are not really kicked up about its 3-cell battery, which Asus claims can run for about 4 hours. We are also not sure how comfortable users will be to operate MeeGo as compared to the more popular Microsoft Windows operating system. Asus does have a Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition version of the netbook but it has not introduced it in India, yet. Read on for the press release.

Intel to deliver new levels of affordability and ease of use in entry level Netbooks without compromising aesthetics or performance

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Asus’ collaboration with RCom brings down the price of ASUS X101 Netbook from Rs 12,499 /- to Rs 9,999/-
  • Consumers can avail discount on Reliance Netconnect with every purchase of ASUS X101 Netbook

New Delhi, India, September 28, 2011 – Intel today announced plans to make it easier for millions of people in India who do not own a PC yet to gain access to the benefits of computing and the Internet. The Company announced a collaboration with RCom to accelerate broadband penetration using the PC as a growth engine. The Company also announced a collaboration with ASUS to produce entry level Netbooks designed for the first time buyers, students and people on the go.

Both RCom and Intel will aim to increase device footprint among internet subscribers across India by enhancing collaboration with OEMs, joint retail promotions and selling Intel Architecture based devices through the RCom Stores.

Speaking on the development, Prashanth Adiraju, Director, New Platforms Business Group, Intel South Asia said, “Our endeavor is to bring whole new levels of affordability to the Netbook category without compromising on performance, usability or aesthetics. The collaboration with RCom gives us the opportunity to deliver computing and connectivity proposition to first time buyers especially in high potential Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities. This proposition will appeal to the 90 million households that can now afford an entry level PC with less than one month of income.”

“We believe that the real catalyst in Notebook or Netbook growth would be when Internet access becomes easier, affordable and consistent. I am sure, in addition to our revolutionizing design and style, this initiative to make Reliance Netconnect available to consumers at a discounted price would help in increasing the adoption of Netbooks amongst the users,” commented Alex Huang, Country Head, Systems Group, ASUS India.

“Reliance is delighted to support Intel’s cloud driven Meego OS and offer a complete package of affordable computing and wireless broadband access to bridge the digital divide in semi-urban and rural India. Reliance has rolled out Netconnect broadband services in over 1200 towns in line with its vision of ‘Wirefree Broadband India’. We are happy to work with like-minded partners like Intel and Asus towards our vision and goal of driving data penetration in India,” said Kaushik Pillalamarri, Senior Vice President – Data & Devices, Reliance Communications.

ASUS showcased its latest ASUS Eee PC X101 powered by an Intel® Atom™ processor. These Netbooks come pre- loaded with MeeGo open source system enabling a fast, rich and intuitive experience along with applications for email, social networking, entertainment and education.
