ASUS Eee Pad with 4-7 inch touchscreen tipped

Dec 10, 2009

Who says all the tablet rumors have to be about Apple?  DigiTimes is quoting its usual shadowy "industry sources" who reckon ASUS are reading their own slate-style device, to be called the ASUS Eee Pad.  A crossover MID/tablet according to their suggestion, the Eee Pad would have a 4- to 7-inch touchscreen, but beyond that details are slim.

Those unnamed sources reckon ASUS has been "inspired" by the ongoing Apple rumors, though there have been various whispers about such a device for many months now.  Cheap netbooks have become common donor-models for DIY tablet projects, and if ASUS price the Eee Pad right then they could have a reasonably nifty winner on their hands.
