Right now, one question more than any other weighs upon the collective mind of tech consumers; do I want a tablet PC? Tons of different companies are attempting to answer that question with flashy new gadgets. As you may remember, one of them is Asus. They're said to be developing an Eee Pad tablet PC. While we still know fairly little about this product, Electronista has heard (via German site NetbookNews) some details about this new Asus product. For one thing, the Eee Pad is expected to pack a Tegra chip. It's said to be a multi-touch tablet with either a 4" or 7" screen. Both models may eventually be made available. The resolution is said to be either 720p or 1080p, and it should launch "after" March. The OS will probably be Android 2.0, since it can handle multitouch and will work with ARM processors. Alright, so this Asus tablet sounds a lot like the Vega. Come next year, multitouch Tegra tablets will probably be fairly common. So why get excited about the Eee Pad? Because it's from Asus. These are the people that made the netbook what it is today. If any company can nail exactly what consumers want in a portable tablet, and offer it at a solid price, it's Asus.
