If you follow trends at all, then it's not too hard to figure out what the current one is. In recent times, first it was netbooks that stole the show, followed by e-book readers, and now tablet PCs are all the talk. Enter Asus, who along with MSI (see here), has no intention of letting Apple corner the market.
Like MSI's unit, Asus' Eee Tablet (or whatever it will be called) will tap into Tegra, and specifically Tegra 2. But it will also sport a dual-core ARM Cortex 9 based processor with support for multitasking. In other words, you can expect a fairly powerful tablet capable of full 1080p HD playback, which makes the HDMI connector a most welcome addition.
What we don't know is how much it will cost, and probably won't have those details until CeBit, which kicks off in early March.
