ASUS previews new tablet ahead of Computex debut

ASUS has previewed its upcoming tablet, headed for a debut at Computex 2011 later this month. The unnamed slate is so far unconfirmed to be running Android, but given the success of the Eee Pad Transformer it seems likely that it will have Honeycomb on board.

Hardware specifications are unclear at present, but at least one camera is confirmed along with speakers. The aesthetics also look to have been given more consideration than on the Transformer, with more curves and different material finishes; in fact, the slate bears the ASUSdesign badging of the company's design studio.

If ASUS can deliver the same balance of functionality and competitive pricing with the new model, they could carve themselves quite the niche in among the tablet market. We'll have to wait and see exactly what the new slate delivers to know for sure, though.

    Very very little to go off. 

    But it looks very premium…

    If they sort out their production issues it might sell very very well.

     I would much rather see Asus perfect the Transformer line and keep prices down than introduce a whole bunch of different tablets.
