Who isn't working on a handheld tablet these days? A week ago you could have said Asus, but if you said that today, you'd be wrong. Maybe.
According to the latest rumor, Asus is preparing to launch its own tablet under its Eee line, which it will call the Eee Pad. There isn't a whole of details to share at this point, but it looks as though the device will come with a 4 to 7 inch panel and offer a combination of tablet PC and MID functions, or at least that's what industry sources are saying. The same sources say Asus' Eee Pad is largely inspired by the rumors of Apple's planned tablet.
Tablet rumors have been in full force this past year. The unconfirmed Apple tablet has been delayed several times , Foxconn is said to be working on a device for a 2010 release, then there's the recent CrunchPad fiasco .
