After images of Asus' next-generation Eee Pad TF300T leaked onto the Internet earlier this month, we wouldn't be too surprised if this upcoming tablet made its debut at Mobile World Congress later this month. Considering this tablet uses the same naming conventions as previous Transformer tablets, we're expecting the TF300T to be part of the Transformer family. Now, we're getting even more details about this tablet in the form of leaked specs. More specifically, it looks like the new Eee Pad TF300T could feature a 1.2GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor along with a 10.1-inch IPS display (1200... Read more...

If there's one thing a manufacturer like Asus understands, it's how to service their existing customer base with timely updates for things like firmware and drivers. With their lineage in motherboards, where BIOS updates can be critical for compatibility and performance, a company like Asus knows how to work closely with ecosystem partners in an effort to roll out product updates and enhancements quickly.  And so it's no surprise they're one of the first manufacturers out of the gate with a drop of the latest Android Honeycomb OS version 3.2 for their darling 10.1-inch slate, the...

Computex 2011 has officially started off with a major bang, and it's largely thanks to Asus. The company has led the way with a slew of announcements, with the Padfone being the one that'll have people talking and gawking for months. But this one ain't bad, either. The Eee Pad Memo 3D hops onto two bandwagons at once: slate, and 3D. But can you really blame Asus? LG's G-Slate is already offering 3D support in a tablet, so Asus is already having to play catch-up. The Eee Pad Memo 3D is a 7" tablet, which comes as somewhat of a surprise. Lots of newer tablets are using the larger 8.9" or 10" form... Read more...

Much of the discussion on the iPad's purported disruptive effect on the computer industry has focused on devices like Amazon's Kindle. A recent announcement from Asus, however, indicates the iPad has hit the netbook industry hard. This news tops off a rather wretched Q2 for the company—total sales revenue was $2.29 billion, down 6.6 percent quarter-on-quarter, with gross margin down 1.5 percentage points to 11.9 percent and net profit down 17.9 percent. The decline affected multiple product segments, including motherboards, netbooks, and notebooks. Asus was mum on the reason for declining... Read more...
Android tablets are all the rage right now. Earlier, we told you about Lenovo's plan to launch an Android Tablet dubbed LePad later this year. It appears Asus is also eying Google's mobile OS for its first tablet device. The upcoming Asus Eee Pad will be an extension of the company's already popular Eee netbook line. However, the Eee Pad will look and feel more like the iPad than a traditional computer. The Eee Pad has been in the works for a little while and Asus had reportedly been using a slimmed-down version of Windows as the operating system. Now, Netbooknews is reporting that Asus has scrapped... Read more...

Asus has already confirmed that it will be entering the booming e-reader market later this year, but one device we haven't heard much about is the purported Eee Pad. In fact, we've only heard the Eee Pad referred to in rumor form, but all of that changes today. Asus' Corporate Vice President, Eric Chen, recently confirmed to members of the press that it's planning to release an Eee Pad in the future, and with the new revolution of tablets upon us, we could see Asus' play getting a lot of attention in the very short future.He stated that an affordable touchscreen, 3G-equipped device in the form...
