At Computex this year Asus showed off the Asus Eee Tablet, which doubled has a great little e-reader. Since they showed off the unit, everything was rather quiet, until now. We got word today that Asus is renaming the unit and bringing it out to CES 2011 and releasing it in the first quarter of 2011.
Asus lately has been announcing things and quietly releasing products. Just take a look at the Asus DR-900 E-Reader, it came onto the scene with much fanfare, and then nothing for half a year, only be released with not anything but a mouse squeak..
Since its been awhile, lets take a look at some of the specs of this new device, that will be known as either the Digital Note or the Eee Note.
It will have a Tegra 2 dual-core ARM-based chip and will be around 8 inches with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It will have 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage capacities via SD Card. It will also have GPS, Webcam, USB, HDMI, and will be running Windows Embedded Compact 7, a special optimized version for use on tablet PCs.
