Asus Bringing 12" Eee Pad To CES 2011

It will probably have horrific battery life.

Asus Bringing 12" Eee Pad To CES 2011
 
 

Asus is bringing a tablet to CES 2011. Not exactly surprising, but hey- at least this video acts as official confirmation. The 12" EP121 tablet will differentiate itself from other products on the market by being focused on productivity and true multitasking. Mobile tablets like the iPad may be cute mini-PCs, but the EeePad will be a full-on beast.

There's a Core i5 processor under the hood and Windows 7 OS driving the gears. We can expect 1080p playback, HDMI-out, USB slots, finger and pen support and plug-n-play keyboard support.

Having that kind of power in a thin, sexy tablet sounds pretty nice. But let's think about the practical side of things now. There's simply no way this thing gets any kind of longevity- I'd be surprised if it ends up hitting 5 hours in real-world use situations. You'll notice that battery life wasn't something Asus bragged about in this commercial.

This tablet is basically a straight-up laptop replacement. It won't give you any added functionality or mobility, but it will take up less space and be "lean back" friendly without sacrificing the power to Get Things Done.

Asus CEO Jonney Shih stated at the end of the video that this was just "the beginning". Other manufacturers (Acer) are launching Windows 7 tablets AND Android tablets. It'll be a surprising CES if this is the only tablet Asus has to show, come January 6.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
