Asus also unveiled the Eee Pad Transformer, a 10.1-inch tablet that transforms into a laptop with a detachable, full-sized keyboard. The Eee Pad Transformer is set for release this April.

The company will also release the Windows 7-based Eee Slate E121, set to be powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and coming complete with HD media support. The device is expected to go on sale later this month.
