Asus had announced two new tablets, the EEE Pad EP101TC and the EP121 a couple of months back in Cumputex 2010. Both the tablets were supposed to run on Windows CE (Embedded Compact) which had inspired a few groans from those who had tried them out. Though attractive, the Windows CE interface was a bit buggy and unresponsive.
Asus seems to have ditched its Windows CE plans and will now ship the EEE Pad EP101TC with Android on board. They are currently working on a version of the EP101TC with Android 2.2 Froyo and may even switch to Android 3.0 Gingerbread by the time shipping commences in Q1 2011. They plan to showcase the tablet in CES 2011.
In other news, even Lenovo seems to be readying its Android tablet, the LePad for a launch by the end of 2010. The tablet wars are just beginning.
