If you've been waiting ever since last week's Computex announcementfor the new 10-inch version of the Asus Eee PC Netbook, it's already been spottedon PCHome, a Taiwanese shopping site.

According to the specs listed on the site, this is the Eee PC 1000H version, which includes Windows XP, an Intel Atom CPU, and a traditional 80GB hard drive (as opposed to the SSD drive in other Eee PC models).

Since we're all waiting around for U.S. availability info, the real interesting part here is the price. Listed at $18,988 NT (New Taiwan Dollars), that works out to around $625 at today's exchange rate. Whether that will be the retail price here remains to be seen, but it fits in with the progression of Eee models, from the original 7-inch $399 version to the 9-inch $550 version.
