This one features 500GB of storage, a dual layer DVD burner and 4-port USB Hub in a very desirable, good looking package.
We hope to get one in for review so stay tuned!

Two versions of the Eee Pad are announced, a 12" and a 10" model.
Here are the details: The 10" is the closest competitor

Google Maps for Windows Mobile just got updated to version 4.1.0. This version includes now the capability to perform voice activated searches. Just need to press Talk button and say what you're looking.
