Asus Tablets in 2010: iPad killer to run on Google or Microsoft

By Alan Ng - Mar 31, 2010

We have some exciting news for fans of ASUS products now, as the company has released a few details about their forthcoming lineup of tablet PCs – or iPad killers, as we put it.

As reported from Pocket-Lint, ASUS has confirmed that they will be launching not one, but two tablets onto the market before the end of the year.

No specific details on what specs these tablets will carry, but ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih has revealed that one of the tablets wil run on Google’s Chrome or Android OS, while the other will operate on Windows 7.

Pretty exciting for those of you looking for an alternative to the high priced iPad. More details on the tablets are expected at the Computex trade show in June.

Let us know your thoughts on this.

  • As soon as a windows based tablet is relased, I will buy it as long as it has mobile capabilities and not just WiFi. I am a very busy real estate agent and it would be great if I can show clients properties as we are driving on a tablet. The laptop is too cumbersome in the car. I would be happy to purchase an iPad however, it doesn't support the MLS systems I utilize nor does support the software I use. Even if the cost is $1000, I will buy it. Just make it good!

    I've been an Apple geek for nearly 30 years but I'm really looking forward to an Android based tablet. I'm not spending $500 or more for an oversized iphone but I'd love to have something I could drag around in place of a laptop to do daily tasks. I use my iPhone to read and listen to music while I work out. A tablet would be even better. But again, if they can knock a huge chunk of the cost off of something similar I'd buy it in a second.
