We noted a few weeks ago that Asus would be putting out a sweet tablet during Computex Taipei, and now the internet is all a-twitter after their CEO re-confirmed this. He seems pretty optimistic — but the real question is whether they can bring it to market. I mean, I saw the Eee Keyboard more than a year ago and it’s still not in my living room. Can they really make this tablet happen?
They say they want to work with Google, and that implies Chrome OS. Asus would be a natural partner for Google if they wanted to put out a lot of Google-branded cheap tablets with Chrome OS on ’em, but it’s still too early to say anything definite. Guess we’ll just have to wait until June.
