TAIPEI, Taiwan – Taiwan’s AsusTek Computer Inc. unveiled Monday a portable tablet computer that runs on Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system, joining a slew of manufacturers trying to tap demand for the sleek devices following Apple’s launch of the iPad.
In addition to full Windows support, Company Chairman Jonney Shih said Eee Pad is equipped with a Web camera and runs Flash by Adobe Systems which will allow users to view YouTube and other video programs on the Internet.
They have some really cool pictures over at DailyTech, check them out here.
One good thing that is known is that it will have usb ports for expandability, mouse, keyboard perhaps? I think the more the better, i just don’t like how iPads cannot be expanded upon in any way… just my 2 cents. The new slate pc will also be thinner and lighter that the iPad, at 12.2mm thick and weighing just shy of 1.5lbs, impressed? I am. I will definitely keep you all posted.
