Asus At CES 2011: 7" MeMO Tablet, 12.1" Eee Slate, 10.1" Eee Pad Transformer and 10.1" EPad Slider

Asus At CES 2011: 7" MeMO Tablet, 12.1" Eee Slate, 10.1" Eee Pad Transformer and 10.1" EPad Slider

Also: Asus is working on a Sixth Sense style device


I'm sitting in a giant convention room in the Aria Hotel right now, listening to Asus CEO Jonny Shih unveil the first generation of Asus slates. It's an impressive slew of products. We've got a 7" slate, a 12.1" slate a 10.1" slate and another 10.1" slate.

Being from Asus, each of these products has something to set them apart from the flock. The 7" MeMO is a smartphone replacement. It has a snapdragon processor, 1080p playback, dual-cameras and a multitouch display. The focus here is on productivity, and the MeMO comes with a MeMIC phone extender so you can use this tablet as a phone without pulling it out of your pocket.

The Eee Slate EP121 is being billed as the most powerful tablet PC in the world. It has a good claim to that title, with a Core i5 processor, 12.1" display and Windows Home 7 Premium. They demoed this product playing 1080p while using photoshop and sending attached images via email. There was no noticable lag, even when flipping through applications. It comes with a WACOM digitizer pen.

The one thing Shih didn't brag about with his EP121 was battery life. I can't imagine a Core i5 slate getting more than a couple hours of charge.

The EeePad transformer is a tablet...with a detachable keyboard! With the keyboard, it can get up to 16 hours of battery life. It has a 10.1" capacitive display, Tegra 2 processor, Android, full flash and a whole mess of ports (USB, HDMI). There's also a camera and full Flash support.

The EPad Slider is a 10.1" tablet with a sliding keyboard. It is less than 2/3rds of an inch thick and has a Tegra 2 processor. It has Android Honeycomb, dual-cameras (1.2 MP and 5 MP) and full Flash.

Asus really Brought It this year. There are a ton of slates, Win 7, Android and other, due out this year. The Eee Pad family is one of the few lines that actually stands out. The Slider and the Transformer don't look like any other tablets on the market. I have my doubts about each of these products (crappy battery life for the 121, what seperates the Transformer from a touchscreen laptop?). But at least they aren't the same as every other slate.

Lastly, Asus unveiled IRIS: Inspirational Research for Immersive Space. This is a new research arm for the company- it came with a video of a bunch of "future" Asus products. Basically, imagine a world of pseudo-holographic projector devices and clear slates that can send data instantly to other devices with a gesture. From this, I think we can expect to see a lot of projector-based devices come to Asus. LG is already working on Sixth Sense style projector devices. Apparently they aren't alone.


I have a few videos from the conference- expect to see them go up later tonight.
