First impressions count – the ASUS Eee Tablet

Clip to Evernote

You can make all the right moves but some things don’t always accordingly go to plan. And that seems to have happened to ASUS over at Computex 2010 when it introduced the Eee Tablet to the world media.

While ASUS was primarily marketing it as a digital note-taking device, the tech media was quick to label it as an “e-reader with note taking capabilities”.

Darren Murph from Engadget only had a couple minutes of hands-on time with the Eee Tablet, but he liked what he saw.

He was particularly impressed with the new LCD screen’s 0.1 second page turns, although he did on occasion increased loading times when too many page turns were made at one go. But on the whole, the Eee Tablet made a good impression on the Engadget team.

As her headline suggests, Kat Hannaford from Gizmodo sees an e-reader as well, but pays it the compliment of being a “Kindle slayer”.

While CNET’s Dan Ackerman thinks that with the Eee Tablet’s ability to play media files, ASUS is pushing it as a hybrid e-book/entertainment device.


They call it an e-reader, ASUS calls it a digital note-taking device, but either way, it’s off to a good start.
