Apple is the hands down leader in the tablet market today but believe us not many of the smart device makers of the world like that and hence keep coming up with something or the other to get their name up the list latest addition to the lineup is Asus (Asus disclosed to the press in January 2010 that a tablet computer named as “Eee Pad”, using an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, a 3G wireless connection and a 720p or 1080p resolution, would debut at Computex) the company is planning to come up with a superb tablet machine that is claiming to carry some of the best features in the market. The ASUS Eee pad is probably one of the better competitors of the Apple iPad seemingly much better than the tablets launched by the other cheap Chinese brands.
To EP90 has a 8.9-inch screen size – bigger than the Galaxy TAB Vahpalieveok Rim , but smaller than the iPad The advantage is a more comfortable view of movies and other content, combined with light body (650 grams) is suitable as a carry-on baggage. Maximum screen resolution of the tablet is 1024 by 600 pixels which indeed is pretty well standing as one of the best at this point of time. Like its competitors, even the EP90 will be having a number of sub models, with different storage space – eight, 16 or 32 GB.
However, all models also include 500 GB of storage on the company’s servers, online and that makes up a great deal for the less memory on board. Although the dependence of access to files over a network connection sounds weird, but it’s a very convenient solution for users who want to save storage space on the computer itself. Under the hood of the computer is the Tegra 2250 (NVIDIA Tegra is a system-on-a-chip series developed by NVIDIA for mobile devices such as smartphones, personal digital assistants and mobile internet devices. Each Tegra is a “computer on a chip” which integrates the ARM architecture processor CPU, GPU, northbridge, southbridge and memory controller onto a single package. The series emphasizes low power consumption and high performance for playing video and audio) , two processor – core at 1 GHz – gives more power than the Galaxy TAB processors and even the iPad. This will enable various demanding applications running – and better performance while multitasking.
The tablet also runs Windows 7 embedded and has a battery life of around 4.5 hours. WiFi, memory card slot, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam pretty much round out the specs for this tablet. There’ll also be Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3G, along with HMDI, USB, a headphone socket, and SD/SDHC memory card reader. A 0.3-megapixel webcam on the front will be used for video conferencing.
So there it is guys another player into the tablet market this is a big one and carries pretty handy capabilities as well. If seen from a wider horizon this device has what it takes to make a mark in the market but overthrowing the power players, well I don’t think that is yet possible so Asus well tried but better luck next time.
