May well be the first full-featured Android tablet on the market

Dell kind of set the ball rolling on Android computing devices with the not-quite-a-huge-Droid-but-smaller-than-a-mini-iPad Streak gadget earlier this month, but Asus will be one of the first to actually have a full-sized Android tablet.

The company, which has found success in the market of low-cost netbook computers, confirmed that it will bring out an Android-powered iPad killer next March.

The Eee Pad will be available for below $400, according to Asus CEO Jerry Shein. That would make it cheaper than an iPad, and given the success of Android it could prove to be a worthwhile device.

Shein also noted that a slightly larger Windows 7-based tablet would be available as early as December, the EP121, with a price tag of around $1,000. The $400 tablet will have a 10-inch screen while the EP121 tablet will be 12 inches and will function more as a laptop than a multimedia tablet.

Asus is also working on a tablet that runs on Linux. If anyone can give the iPad a run for its money, it is Asus, the company that really kicked off the entire netbook fascination.
