Not one to let all the other computer manufacturers have all the fun, ASUS has announced that they will be releasing their own tablet PC to compete with the iPad.
The ASUS Eee Pad might look something like the decapitated head of one of their Eee netbooks (shown above), but no actual pics have been revealed yet. On a related note, Asus expects that the Eee Pad to cannibalize sales of their netbook like by as much as 20%. Little is known about the technology in the Eee Pad at this point, but word on the street is that it will run on Google’s Android OS, and will include features missing from the iPad such as USB, a webcam and support for Adobe Flash.
ASUS says the Eee Pad should retail for somewhere around $479 to $510 (USD), and plans to release the tablets in Q3 2010. Expect more details and the actual device to surface at the upcoming Computex 2010 show, which runs from June 1st through 5th. Stay tuned.
