ASUS Eee Pad tablet to use Tegra 2 chipset?

The ongoing ASUS Eee Pad speculation has now been joined by another interesting rumor, that the Taiwanese company plans to use NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset in the touchscreen slate.  Netbook News are reporting that the company have settled on the 1080p HD-capable chipset for the Eee Pad, which is expected to have a touchscreen somewhere between 4- and 7-inches.

That should pit it squarely against the ICD Ultra, a 7-inch Tegra T20-based slate expected to arrive in early 2010, along with the Notion Ink smartpad (which has a larger, 10.1-inch Pixel Qi display).  Both of those rivals use Android as their OS; so far we’ve not heard what platform ASUS might settle on for the Eee Pad.
