Asus Eee Pad

Apparently the "pad" name for tablets is going to stick, as Netbook pioneer Asus is using it for the just-announced Eee Pad. What we find more interesting about the Eee Pad is that the 12-inch version will have a full Windows 7 OS and Intel Core 2 Duo ULV CPU. Read more about the Eee Pad here.

Asus Eee Tablet

Less of a do-everything tablet and more of a turbocharged e-book reader, the Asus Eee Tablet takes basic book-reading and add stylus-based note-taking and annotating. The company describes it as "one of the world's most accurate and sensitive digital note taking devices, [that] gives the user the feel of writing on paper." Read more about the Eee Tablet here.

Intel prototype ultra-thin laptop

This slim little fellow is a reference design cooked up by Intel to show off possible future ultra-thin designs. Using the upcoming "Canoe Lake" processor platform, Intel thinks laptops like this could get down to 14mm. Read more about it here.

LG UX10 Windows 7 tablet

Not a big name in PCs here in the US, LG also had a tablet PC on display. Like some others we've seen, the LG UX10 pairs a 10.1-inch capacitive touch display with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor and Windows 7. Having tested more than a few Atom Z-series devices, all we can say is good luck with all that. See it on CNET Asia and Engadget.

MSI WindPad

MSI is also going with the "pad" moniker for its MSI WindPad. There will be two flavors of the device. The WindPad 100 will pair Windows 7 with an Intel Atom Z530 processor (based on previous experience, that seems like a recipe for disaster), while the WindPad 110 uses Android and the tablet-friendly Nvidia Tegra platform.

Quanta Redvale MeeGo tablet

This should be one of the first devices to use Intel's upcoming "Oak Trail" system-on-chip platform, paired with MeeGo, which is a Linux-based OS for tablets and other low-power devices. See more details here.
