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.

On example of this technology would be to scroll through a list of products, while individual products that catch the viewer’s eye can be pulled up and brought into greater detail by hovering over the item.
