Report: Asus EeePC Tablet to Run on Tegra

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 11 comments

It's all about tablets today! Asus' Eee Pad is rumored to be based on Tegra.

There's no solid evidence that we'll see this puppy at CES in a few weeks time but if netbooknews.com is right, when we do catch sight of it, it'll be packing Nvidia's Tegra processor.

Netbooknews.com reports that the Asus will be basing its EeePC tablet on Tegra but adds that it's not yet clear if the device will utilize the first generation Tegra CPU or if Asus will opt for Tegra 2. According to netbooknews the device will hit in March 2010, meaning Tegra 2 is a definite possibility.

We're intrigued!

    The real question is... what's the difference between "netbooknews.com" and "Netbookews.com"

    two articles I've read so far today and I've spotted three typos/grammer errors already.

    Proofread??

    That is a fair question, if it's a tablet it must be multitouch so what will it be for the OS? Windows 7 has to be the lead contender.

    well tegra is a mobile platform, isn't x86, so it will run a mobile OS, probably android! or maybe windows CE

    Dang, and I was all excited it would be W7. I want a lighter battery efficient version of my tx2500z.
