Staples next to sell Eee PC 4G at Retail?

Written by David Stellmack

Conducting viability trials

Yesterday, we told you that BestBuy would soon be selling Asus' Eee PC 4G with Windows XP. It seems that U.S. office supply and technology retailer, Staples, is looking to maybe add sales of the Eee PC 4G with Windows XP, as well.

However, it seems that Staples is doing a bit of viability testing between the Asus Eee PC and Acer’s competing version of the Eee PC. We continue to be short on specifics on the Acer model, but we do know that it is very similar in both specification and design to the Asus Eee PC. Of course, the interesting thing about the Acer version is that it is said to be priced at $50 less than the Eee PC.

Staples is expected to continue its evaluation over the next week to ten days and then make its decision. If rumors are true, they hope to have one version of the EEE PC on their retail shelves within the next three weeks.
