We might see two different breeds of slate device in Asus' booth at Computex next month. There's the Eee Pad we've been hearing about for several weeks now, which will run Google's Android operating system and feature an ARM-based Nvidia Tegra system-on-a-chip. Now, DigiTimes reports that a second Eee Pad variant based on Windows 7 is in the works. The news comes from none other than Asus CEO Jerry Shen, who explained that this Windows-based Eee Pad will have an Atom processor, a 10" display, and a "no-fan, ultra-thin and light design."
Asus certainly picked an interesting time to talk about an Intel- and Windows-based slate device. Following its acquisition of Palm last week, HP has made it clear that it intends to put Palm's webOS on upcoming slate products. And if we're to believe certain reports from gadget sites, HP has decided to scrap the Windows-based slate Microsoft showed at CES.
