We’ve heard rumors of Asus’ Eee Pad tablets time and again but there was no real confirmation until now. In an interview with Forbes, Asus chairman, Jonney Shih confirmed that they’re developing not one but two iPad competitors. The first tablet will be based on Google’s OS but whether it will be Chrome or Android, is yet to be revealed. We speculate it could be Android because Asus showed a prototype (albeit a non-working one) at this year’s CES with buttons found on an Android device and powered by Tegra 2.
The other tablet will run on Microsoft’s Windows platform but there is no confirmation if WP7S will be present under the hood or a full fledged Windows 7.
Asus is expected to show both or either of the tablets at the Computex expo that takes place every year in Taiwan.
