Computex 2010 Preview: The Tablet Future


The Eee Tablet

The Eee Tablet

The other tablet that ASUS announced is the Eee Tablet. Meant more as a note-taking device, combining the functions of the e-book reader and a notepad, this Tablet is targeted at students and professionals who require the accuracy (a 2450 dpi touch resolution screen apparently from the press details) and the dedicated software (notepad templates with the ability for real-time text annotations) along with the option to store, sort, tag, organize and browse your notes. ASUS also claims to have faster page turning speeds than the best ebook readers available, taking 0.1s to turn a page. There's also a 2-megapixel camera to assist with the capturing of images and lecture slides, and users can immediately write notes on the captured images.

Again, ASUS is talking about a 10 hour battery life, and one can sync with the PC/notebook via USB or microSD to transfer content.

The Eee Tablet is a more unique beast and looks to fit the definition of a note'pad' better than the other 'Pads' we have seen.

We are not too sure how accurate the touch resolution is despite its 2450 dpi claim, but those who enjoy doodling may find this device right up their alleys,

It's not all about the tablets though. We saw this new Republic of Gamers G53 notebook that should leave gamers drooling. It's 3D capable thanks to its 120Hz display, with HDMI 1.4 support (so it's ready for 3D TV from NVIDIA) and uses a Intel Core processor. No word exactly on what's the 'Enthusiast class NVIDIA GPU' used, but we're betting it's heavy duty.

ASUS also showed off its Garmin-Asus A10 smartphone, which embraces the Android platform so that you can get all the apps, along with Garmin's own turn-by-turn voice navigation.

And lastly, models showing off the highlights from ASUS' press event today. Catch these gadgets and more when we troop off to ASUS' booth at Computex 2010 this week.
