Lucky Computex attendees were there to watch as Asus CEO Jerry Shen unveiled the Asus Eee Pad, the latest challenger to the iPad's stranglehold on the tablet market. The big brother of Asus' Eee Tablet, which is less functional and meant to be marketed more towards the e-reader segment, the Eee Pad is a fully functional and connected tablet with a 10 or 12 inch screen, an Intel CULV Core 2 Duo processor under the hood, and Windows 7 as its OS of choice.

 

Asus' new tablets also boast full Wifi connectivity, 10 hours of battery life, and can also be used as a full-featured PC via a keyboard docking station. While pricing and release date have not yet been released, Shen is confident this product will appeal to a high range of consumers. "We envision a different kind of usage scenario," Shen said. "You can be both a premier professional and a housewife."

 

Cam, Chris, and more of the gang from TweakTown are on hand at Computex, so keep your eyes peeled here for more information.
