The Asus Eee PC could have a new challenger in the guise of the ECS G10IL.

The new sub-$500 notebook will come with a HSDPA 7.2 datacard built-in.

Although currently still in production, and details incredibly sketchy at the moment as to what else you will get in the box or when it will launch in the UK, what we do know is that it comes with a built-in webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and a 56Kbps modem.

There is no optical drive but if its got HSDPA it's sure to come with Wi-Fi and most likely Bluetooth to boot.

We are awaiting confirmation from ECS, but in the meantime here is a gallery of images to enjoy.

We will keep you posted.
