ASUS Eee Pad EP90 Tegra 2 tablet spotted running Windows 7 Embedded

Oct 5, 2010

New details regarding a Tegra 2 powered tablet, the ASUS EP90, have spilled out, and the 8.9-inch slate certainly does look interesting.  According to internal documents found by Ynet, the EP90 has a 1024 x 600 touchscreen, weighs 650g and will come with either 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of storage (together with 500GB of cloud-based storage on ASUS' servers).

There'll also be WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3G, along with HMDI, USB, a headphone socket, and SD/SDHC memory card reader.  A 0.3-megapixel webcam on the front will be used for video conferencing.  According to the leaked presentation, battery life is around 4.5hrs.

OS appears to be Windows 7 Embedded, running on the dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset.  Appearance-wise, this looks to be a slight variation on the mysterious ASUS Eee Pad prototype shown at Computex 2010 a few months back, though that was running on an Intel processor.
