We’re about to see another manufacturer throw their hat into the Tablet PC ring. ASUS is expected to show out their EeePad in June at Computex, with a July launch date. Of course, ASUS has a reputation for needing to push those launch dates out a little bit, so we’ll see if things go as planned.
After their market domination with the netbook PC, ASUS is looking to repeat that success by addressing the complaints that are cropping up with that other pad computer out there. ASUS has stated that they are planning on running Android, including a webcam, and a USB port. The only thing that worries me is the price, I think they’ll need to come in lower then the iPad if they want to compete. Current estimates put the EeePad at between $479 and $500. I’ll be honest, I’m a little more excited about this then I was about the iPad.
