"Asus plans to launch its long awaited Eee Tablet with an 8-inch
LCD touchscreen in October for around $300 (£190), though
prices vary by market.
"It was rumoured the device would be the first major,
non-handset Google Android product from Asus and that it might
compete with Apple's iPad.
"But neither of those things are the case. The Eee Tablet may
rival Amazon's Kindle in the e-reader market, but it does not use
digital ink or specialised e-reader screens that give e-readers
their long battery life."
