The long-awaited Eee might finally see the light of day. It looks like we don’t have to wait for it as long as we have for the Eee Keyboard too – we might finally get our hands on one come summer. It might come out late July, to be exact.
More from Liliputing:
The Asus Eee Pad is expected to be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra chipset, which features a low power ARM-based processor and a graphics core capable of handling HD video and 3D graphics as well as Adobe Flash.
Unlike the Apple iPad, the Eee Pad will have a USB port for connecting peripherals and an integrated webcam.
According to DigiTimes, the tablet could run about $480 to $510. And that’s including a subsidy from mobile broadband providers, although it’s not entirely clear if that’s the global price or just the price the Eee Pad is expected to sell for in Taiwan.
Honestly, I am a bit disappointed in the price. The $510 price is apparently “after bundling with telecom carrier services.” I know I shouldn’t expect a tablet computer for the price of an original Eee PC 701, but I was expecting it to be marginally cheaper than an iPad. Oh well then.
What do you guys think? Is the Eee PC Pad tablet computer worth checking out, or are you passing it in favor of the iPad or another tablet computer? Give me your thoughts in the comments.
