New Asus Eee Tablets Available From April

Taiwanese computer maker Asus has announced its line-up of Windows 7 and Google Android based tablet devices that are bound for the UK in April.

The Windows 7 OS powered Asus Eee Slate EP121, which will be stocked by PC World and Currys, will be rolled out in the beginning of April with two further models coming in the same month.

The tablet device will come with 4GB DDR3 RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage space and a 2.1-inch 1280x800 touch LED display. The Windows 7 tablet will run Intel's Core i5 CPU, a 2MP dual camera, bluetooth support, HDMI outlets and 2 USB ports.

The Android based Eee Pad Slider will come with a 10-inch touch screen and a slide out Qwerty keyboard. Running on an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor chip and Nvidia GPU, the tablet will be equipped with a 1.2MP front facing camera and a 5MP back facing camera.

Another Android based device, the Eee Pad Transformer, will also come with a 10-inch screen and Nvidia CPU and GPU. The device will also have a removable keyboard, hence the name.

The company has remained quiet on what version of Android operating systems the tablets will be running and whether they will have 3G support when they launch. Asus will also be launching the new Eee MeMo in the UK in the third quarter of 2011.
