Asus to release two more Tablets with Eee Pad Slider EP102 and Eee Pad EP71
 

Asus said to launch the Eee Pad Silder EP102 and the Eee Pad EP71 in May-July time frame.

Asus has already two tablets on the market the company unveiled at the CES 2011 earlier this year. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101-A1 and the Asus Eee Slate EP121 are on sale on Amazon. Digitimes reports today that Asus will add the Eee Pad Silder EP102 and the Eee Pad EP71 in May-July time frame. The 10-inch Asus Eee Pad EP102 will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and the 7-inch Asus Eee Pad EP71 will use a Qualcomm CPU.

Asus apparently believes the more variety they offer the better. This strategy might actually work for Asus. While Nokia is still at the drawing board to figure out a "unique" tablet, Asus is just releasing different ones on the market and see what sticks. Asus CEO Jerry Shen said that the company plans to ship 2 million tablets in 2011. Asus has the advantage of beeing small enough to not have fight Apple for tablet dominance. For that fight they would need the complete eco-system that Apple has. In my opinion only Amazon has what it takes to tackle the iPad.
