The Asus Eee Pad has great expectations behind it. At Computex, we’re starting to see info and hands on reports about the slates from the folks who started the Netbook craze. Asus is showing off two models. The 12-inch EP121 features Intel’s Core 2 Duo CULV processors, is running Windows 7, and supposedly meets the 10 hour battery life expectation. The EP121 is hybrid like, with a keyboard dock that it can snap in and out of.
The 10-inch EP101TC is running Windows Embedded Compact 7. Joanna Stern of Engadget has some video of the EP101TC prototype. Both devices are prototypes and scheduled for a 2011 release.
