Asus to release 5 tablet PCs in the coming months

I’ve been wondering why Asus has been pretty slow in joining both the tablet PC and e-reader markets. I was really hoping that by this time, Asus has already released an e-reader at least. But since tablets are more popular today than e-readers, an Asus-branded tablet PC would have been a good contender against the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. So finally, Asus has shared with us some details of its plan to join the tablet PC market by way of not just one but five tablets that will start hitting the market as early as December 2010.

None other than Asustek’s chairman, Jerry Shen confirmed the five new Asus tablet PCs that will be coming out in months to come. Mr. Shen announced that a 12-inch tablet featuring Wintel Platform will be ready by December, although sales would only commence by January 2011.

Are we excited now? Actually, the four other Asus Tablet PCs seem more interesting than the 12-inch model. There will be 2 7-inch models and 2 9-inch models which will released in March 2011. One of the 7-inch tablet pc will have Wi-Fi support, while the other will a 3G-capable model. One of the 9-inch tablet PC will adopt the ARM-based Nvidia Tegra 2 platform with Android OS, while the other one will run on Wintel platform. There will also be a difference when it comes to pricing. Particularly, around $100 will be the price difference between these two models.

Looks interesting, right? If only Asus would work doubly hard to meet the targeted release dates of the tablet PCs, then we will have more options when buying a tablet PC.

    I am a real Asus fan! I think this blog needs a moderation. I think it is very well written but the information is too limited. Something more about the laptops should be added!
