*+-Word out of NetbookNews is the whispered ASUS slate tablet, the so-called Eee Pad, will feature multi-touch input. Yay! However, they’re also claiming it will run the NVIDIA Tegra system-on-a-chip. Boo! Hiss!

*+-Engadget has video of a tablet prototype reportedly of the same variety spotted earlier with NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
