While many of us are going gaga over the Apple iPad 2, its essential to know that there are many other companies out there who want to make a mark in the tablet industry. Although ASUS has not been a known name for tablets, you never know. There’s news that the Taiwanese firm will be making a tablet with some neat specs.
no that's NOT the 3D tablet!
A Russian website called hi-tech.mail.ru, spoke to ASUS CEO Jerry Shen, who told them that ASUS is working on a tablet with 3D display and should be running on a four-core processor most likely manufactured by NVIDIA. So if true, this will be the second tablet (after LG’s Optimus Pad) to boast of a 3D display. Other details include the tablet having an Android OS which seems to be quite obvious till they don’t look for customizing a special operating system.
Launch dates and prices for the tablet have not been mentioned whatsoever but there’s probability of the tablet hitting the market sometime at the end of this year. Shen has also mentioned that ASUS will be coming out with Android-only smartphones this year, so looks like there’s no Windows Phone 7 love here, at least for now. The tablet bit looks interesting with the quad-core processor and all, but let’s wait for some more info about it.
