Another Eee PC clone has been launched in Europe by the Spanish company Airis. The Airis Kira sure sounds (and looks) a lot like the Eee PC: 7 inch display, 800 x 480 resolution, 1GHz VIA C7 mobile processor, 2 GB flash memory, 512mb RAM, Ethernet, 56kbps modem.
It is powered by Windows XP, it weighs 2.2lb, its dimensions are 9.5″ x 6.7″ x 1.1″, and it costs 299 Euros ($470).
I guess the old adage still stands: “if you can’t beat them, copy them”, although it is interesting seeing a European company copying an Asian one, it’s normally the other way around.
Unlike the Eee PC it also comes in pretty colors (pink and yellow) as well as black and white.
