  • Taiwan's AsusTek Computer plans to start selling an array of tablet computers - including hybrids that sit somewhere between a laptop and a tablet - with the hope that variety is the best weapon against Apple's iPad. Asus chairman Jonney Shih unveiled the new devices ahead of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. They included the Eee Pad Transformer (seen here), which is a laptop that splits in two to function as a tablet, and the Eee Pad Slider, a tablet with a keyboard that slides out of its left side. The Transformer will run the upcoming Honeycomb version of Google's Android software, which will be more geared toward tablets than the current version for smart phones. It will get up to 16 hours of battery life and include an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. The Transformer is set to go on sale in the US in April for $399 to $699, depending on its configuration.
