Those are the words of Fudzilla reporting on the upcoming Tegra 2-based Asus tablet. While I doubt any other product will ever "kill" the iPad (at the very least, it will rope in a few million dedicated users) this Asus tablet does sound superior to Apple's new device in damn near every way.

It will be powered by a Tegra 2 dual-core ARM Cortex 9 CPU and, like every tablet not made by Apple, it will support multi-tasking. The Asus tablet will be capable of full 1080p playback and it will more than likely also have an external HDMI slot. This hasn't been confirmed, but I'd be very surprised if this thing launches without a webcam too.

And here we see one of the most worrying things about the iPad's potential future success. After the first iPhone hit, it took YEARS before another company managed to put out a device that delivered close to the same level of performance. The same is not true of the iPad. Here's the big question; does this mean that Apple is slipping, or does it just show that their competitors are finally starting to catch up?
