The tablet is reportedly being developed with some cooperation from Google on the Android platform it uses. Unlike Apple's iPad, it will offer support for Adobe Flash, a built-in front camera and standard USB. Previous leaks have also suggested the Eee Pad will sport a 7" screen and that it'll have an Nvidia Tegra chip with support for 1080p video. Perhaps the biggest drawback will be its pricing. According to DigiTimes, the tablet could run about $480 to $510, but only after being bundled (and presumably subsidized) with 3G service.
Internal estimates at Asus suggest the company will only have 300,000 Eee Pads shipping in 2010. In contrast, Apple sold 300,000 iPads just on launch day and may have already passed one million.
