The Eee Tablet Running Windows 7 Costs Twice More Than Eee Android Tablets

Posted Jan 5, 2011

Yesterday at the CES conference, ASUS showcased four new tablet devices. Three of them have Android on it and the other has Windows 7. You will know which one runs on Windows 7 when you see the prices:

– ASUS Eee Pad MeMO – starting at $499
– ASUS Eee Pad Slider – starting at $499
– ASUS Eee Pad Transformer – starting at $399
– ASUS Eee Slate – starting at $999

If you have not figured it out by now, the Eee Slate runs on Windows 7. But it does have some pretty good specifications. The Slate has a Core i5-470UVM processor and 4GB of memory. Another problem here is that Windows 7 on the tablet device is not customized. Stick an operating system not exactly designed for touch screens on a tablet and see what happens. Android is actually built for touch and has an app store with around 200,000 apps.
