Asus is already offering an Intel-based 12.1-inch Eee Slate EP121 running Windows 7 as of last month. The company still plans on launching three Android 3.0 (codenamed Honeycomb) tablets: a 10.1-inch Eee Pad Transformer EP101 equipped with Nvidia Tegra 2 in April 2011 (a hybrid netbook-tablet), a 10.1-inch Eee Pad Slider EP102 equipped with Nvidia Tegra 2 in May 2011 (the name slider implies it's a tablet with a slide-out keyboard), as well as 7-inch 3G-enabled Eee Pad MeMo EP71 equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon in June 2011 (a hybrid between an e-book reader and a tablet).
Asus is going to have a tough time battling against the many various tablet offerings from this year, including the HP Touchpad, RIM's BlackBerry Playbook, Apple's iPad 2, Motorola Xoom, and the just-announced HTC Flyer, among many others. Our recommendation is to wait until the dust settles.
