Better in every aspect
Remember that both Asus and MSI showed mysterious Nvidia based tablet devices and finally we can tell you at least one important bit about the specification.
Asus device is powered by Tegra 2, dual-core ARM Cortex 9 based CPU and it will support multitasking. Even the non-Asus prototypes we used did supported the multitasking and this will be Taiwanese big opportunity in fight against Apple. Of course Asus, MSI are not as cool as Apple, but they will probably cost dramatically less than Apple's iPad.
Tegra 2 will also allow full 1080p HD playback and we can only suspect that Asus will ship its Tablet with an external HDMI connector and let you play HD content on a big screen. We expect to see it again and get more details at Cebit, the world’s biggest IT tradeshow that starts in early March in Hannover Germany.
