Asus juggling new Eee PCs, Eee Pad, e-book readers

By on
Asus is juggling quite the number of low-powered devices behind the scenes. According to industry sources cited by DigiTimes, Asus will unveil its rumored Eee Pad at Computex in June. The device is said to carry an Nvidia Tegra chip -- most likely second-generation -- and will cost under $500.

In addition to the 6-inch color OLED-based DR-570, the company reportedly has a second e-book reader up its sleeve. The DR-950 has a larger 9-inch grayscale 1024x768 touchscreen and weighs around 12 ounces. Neither e-book will arrive in the first half of 2010 though, the sources said.

The company also has several new 12.1-inch Eee PCs lined up, one of which features an Athlon Neo MV-40, Radeon HD 3200, a six-hour battery, and should launch next month. Others will supposedly use Nvidia's Ion 2 graphics chip with Intel's Pine Trail platform and are expected to appear sometime in April.
