While everyone’s still talking about the recently announced iPad 2, the Motorola Xoom and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Taiwanese-based Asus is quietly preparing to launch a competitor of its own. In fact, it sounds like the new tablet will have some pretty neat specs.

According to a recent article by Ashish Koshy over at, Asus CEO Jerry Shen took some time to speak to the guys over at Russian website recently, and said that the company is currently working on a tablet PC with a quad-core processor and a 3D display.

Although we don’t know any other details about the upcoming tablet at this stage, we do know that it will be run on the Android OS. As for the quad-core processor, this is likely to be NVIDIA’s next iteration of Tegra (codenamed Kal-El), according to John Brownlee at

As John notes, the quad-core (Kal-El) processor is said to offer five times the performance of the Tegra 2 chip, as well as offering the ability to stream videos twice the resolution of 1080p. According to Shen, Asus hope to be the second largest player in the tablet market by the end of 2012.
