ASUS Slate

2010年6月1日から始まるComputex TAIPEIに先立つ前日、MSI、NVIDIA、ASUSなどがカンファレンスを開催した。

MSIはSlate端末のWind Padや3D技術搭載の製品など各ジャンルの製品を幅広く。
ASUSはEee PadやEee TabletなどのSlate端末に加えて、ゲーミングPCやサウンドなどにこだわった高品質な製品。

例えば、ASUSのTegraを採用するEee Pad EP101TCはOSにWindows Embedded Compact 7(デモ機はBuild 1344 on May 28 2010)を採用。ハードウェア自体も完成されたとは言いがたく、ソフトウェアもまともに動作しない状態だった。
これとは別に、フル機能のWindows、Core 2 Duoを搭載するEee Pad EP121も投入するようだ。これは通常のWindows系ノートパソコンのタブレット版で、キーボードと液晶が外れるようになったものと思えばいい。

Wind PadもWindows系とAndroid系が用意されるようだ。このように、各社Slate端末は模索中の段階で、iPadのライバルがどうなるかというレベルにも来ていないと言える。

問題はハードウェア自体よりも、AppleのiPhone、iPad、Mac OS X、iTunesなどの一連のプラットフォームに対抗する物がどうなるのかという点。

Two years ago, Netbook was the center of attention. This makes the price of computers down at once, spread the width of the user. Slate came ahead of a terminal of the system.
The leading products of this genre that reached 200 million units sold in the country for the limited release of almost two months to hit in the iPad, Slate, one thing is certain topic terminals.
However, none of the products are in development now, as well as hit store shelves a few months, iPad perfection than it is difficult to say.

For example, ASUS’s EP101TC Pad Eee is New Tegra adopted, OS to Windows Embedded Compact 7 (demo machine Build 1344 on May 28, 2010 ) adopted. Hardware itself is incomplete, the state was not working well this software.
iPad has been achieved for the operation of the touch panel, OS running on AsusShell (file name) of the software. This in itself is no comment on the ASUS.
The goal of that battery life is 6 to 10 hours, they are still developing.
Apart from this, full-featured Windows, Core 2 Duo equipped with Eee Pad EP121 also seems to introduce. This is usually a tablet version of Windows based laptop, the keyboard and the LCD is out of the product.

MSI’s Wind Pad seems to be a Windows system and provides system Android. Thus, the terminal stage companies seeking Slate, iPad not come to say what will happen to the level of competition.
The problem is more than the hardware itself, Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X, iTunes terms of what will happen against things such as a series of platforms.
Hardware companies apart, OS and for Microsoft or Google, OS interface objects can run on your own company. Way things are going rather than to rival Apple’s iPad may be difficult to catch up.
