Asus launched the Eee PC 4G in Korea. Like in Japan the Eee PC is shipping with Windows XP only.

The Asus Eee PC 4G sells for 499,000 Won (~$526) in Korea. Pretty expensive compared to what the Eee 4G with Linux sells for in the U.S.
Asus has still not released the Windows XP Asus Eee in the U.S. and Europe. I am actually not waiting for it. The Linux OS works just perfectly on that machine and I do not miss a thing. The boot time of XP on a 1GB RAM equipped Asus Eee is twice as long as with Linux according to IT Week. That is already a total turn-off for me. The instant on is very important for me on my daily use of the Asus Eee. It is actually still a bit too long with Linux as the connection to Wi-Fi takes its time after booting or wake-up.

The Windows XP Asus Eee is said to arrive still this quarter. Asus Eee PCs sell on NewEgg.
