DigiTimes is reporting that ASUS is planning to release a 12-inch Eee model similar to the company’s 10.2-inch S101. The netbook would be part of the “ZX” series, which was apparently originally supposed to be a line of full-fledged notebooks. ASUS opted, however, to “deliver a high-end Eee PC product to the market.”

Aside from the ZX series detail, the netbook will also have a 16:10 aspect ratio and “will be launched by the end of the year” for under $30,000 (New Taiwan dollars), which is around $900 USD. I’d guess that if and when the netbook made it here to the states, it’d be priced closer to $600-$700, though. A fair amount of these Eee netbooks priced in New Taiwan dollars seem to hit here for about 25% less.
