Asus is going to unveil its first 12-inch Netbook (Eee PC 1201HA) on its Eee PC sibling. Although it is unknown what the exact specification would be, from some source I have collected some information. According to the supports page of Asus, by downloading the Chipset driver it makes me sure that the chipset will be US15W. The processor would be Intel Atom Z520 or Z530 but Graphics has been equipped from Intel GMA 500 series. The Netbook is suppose to be released in the fourth-quarter of this year.

Asus Eee PC 1101HA (Seashell) was powered by same processor series Intel Atom Z520 processor and 1GB of DDR2 RAM but Eee PC 1201HA’s memory would be 2GB and Intel Atom N270. Some sources are explaining that it will be Atom N270 processor but others are supporting for Atom Z520.

Similarly, Asus Eee PC 1201HA would be from the same lineup of Seashell family. Others supporting equipment will be 250GB of storage drive, 6-cell battery, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The operating system would be Windows 7 Home Premium and the battery will support 11 hours business working time.
