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.
