ASUS' EeePad Ready For July Launch

EeePad is go, according to ASUS' Chairman Jerry Shen, who will be showing it off this June at Computex as planned. However, a launch date has also been mentioned by the Taiwanese - an early-sounding late July.

It's bound to be dirt-cheap which is why it's of interest in this every-CEO-and-his-dog time, though Digitimes is reporting the Taiwan price will be $NT15,000-$NT16,000, which is $US475-$US505, which doesn't sound quite right when the iPad and other tablets are sub-$US500.

As for the full specs, it's anyone's guess - though we do know they've craftily added USB ports, a webcam and Adobe Flash to the Tegra-chip tablet. [Digitimes]
