ASUS Eee Tablet: Call It A Kindle-Slayer, Not An iPad-Killer

Normally we'd be running to the hills in fright of clocking a stylus within 50-feet of a tablet, but in ASUS' case they're claiming that "the humble notepad is in line for a digital makeover."

It's more of an electronic notepad/ereader rather than a tablet (despite ASUS calling it the ASUS Eee Tablet), and has a "highly-sensitive 2540dpi resolution touchscreen." A big selling-point for the Eee Tablet is that it's the perfect 21st-century accompaniment for meetings or lectures—allowing the user to make notes with ease, "like you're writing on paper" according to ASUS.


While full specs haven't been revealed for the Eee Tablet or Eee Pad, we do know that the passive TFT-LCD screen acts as an ereader, with just a 0.1-second page turn. Despite it being more business-based that entertainment-based, it's also got a 2MP camera. Wi-Fi is included (with books and apps being downloaded that way), but it also connects to PCs with the USB port or can have data loaded via the microSD card slot. [TechInStyle]
