CeBIT starts tomorrow but already rumours and pictures are flying from blog to tech site.

And here's an exciting one for all of you fans of that dinky device - the Asus Eee.

Engadget has got pictures of what appears to be a 7 inch R70a UMPC at the Asus CeBIT stand.

They suggest it has Vista tucked inside a 120GB disk, and a 1.6GHz Intel processor, but didn't have a chance to pull it apart to figure out what type.

On the outside, it has two USB jacks, a memory card slot, kickstand for watching videos, and controls in line with the 5-inch R50a.

And, judging from the pics, integrated GPS is being mooted as an option.

Keep watching this space.
