Asus to launch a couple of tablets

Asus chairman Jonney Shih told Forbes that his company will deliver "at least two" tablet PCs soon.

"Between netbooks and smartphones and e-readers, we think there will be a space for something like a tablet or slate PC," Shih said.

The devices - one running Google Chrome or Android, the other running Windows - will most probably be shown off at Computex in June. Shih first showed off Asus' eee PC on a Computex stage in 2007. EeePad anyone?

"There will be an Apple camp [in tablets], but Asus always tries to address the open camps of Google and Microsoft," he told Forbes.

"Content will play a very important role on tablets," said Shih. "The Google tablet will have a lot of media."
