CEO of Asustek Jerry Shen stated that they will be launching an Android tablet for under $399 in March. ASUS has been working on an Android based smartphone, and will start putting more effort into creating an Android based tablet.
While the specifications of the device were not revealed, Engadget speculates that it will launch as a variant of the 10-inch Eee Pad EP101TC, which was previously reported to have dumped Windows Embedded Compact for Android by Engadget after being announced at Computex earlier this year.
We expect many changes to be made to the EP101TC form factor if it indeed launches as an Android device, such as Android dedicated buttons. Still, we finally have confirmation that there will be a real push for the Android tablet market from yet another top electronics manufacturer.
