Asus Launches Tablets at Computex

Asus has announced the release of its EeePad EP101TC tablet devices at the Computex 2010 trade show.

Two versions of the EeePad are planned for release. One features a 10in screen, and is set to run Microsoft's Windows Compact 7 operating system. The other comes with a 12in screen and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

Both tablets use a non-backlit monochrome LCD display instead of e-ink, and feature a built-in 2-megapixel camera.

Both operating systems are designed to synchronise with corporate e-mail, calendars and contacts and with the Windows 7 Device Stage, which will allow users to transfer data between PCs and other media devices.

The tablets use touchscreens with a specially designed stylus, have a claimed battery life of 10 hours and support microSD cards.

Both tablet versions are set to be available this September.
