Eee Pad Transformer 2 W/ Windows 8, Due 2012
Although we recently heard about the Eee Pad Transformer’s debut, it looks like the company is already set to launch the Eee Pad Transformer 2, next year, with Windows 8. Although Android’s Honeycomb has been a hot commodity for recent tablets, I have a feeling that consumers are going to want to taste what Windows 8 has to offer.
News of the Transformer sequel was leaked by an Asus employee at this years Computex and was quickly reported on the french site, Les Numeriques. The employee was sure to note that users will have the option of sticking with Android on the new Eee pad, if they choose to.
The Eee Pad Transformer 2 is touted to be thinner, lighter, and faster. The new tablet will feature the same detachable function and come with a base, containing a keyboard, input ports, and an additional battery.
While the representative didn’t have too many details this early on, it’s exciting to know that Asus is already hard at work on the next model and shows that Apple isn’t the only one focused on its product line evolution. Stay tuned as more leaks arise to the surface! Hopefully we can get our hands on some physical specs and leaked photos before the end of this year!
