More tablet PCs coming
ASUS, Dell, HP and MSI will soon release a wave of new tablet netbooks, according to industry sources in a Friday DigiTimes report. The first is expected to come from MSI at the start of 2010 in the form of a 10-inch tablet, with an HP-branded and Inventec-built netbook due in April or May. They are both expected to run on Intel's upcoming Pine Trail-M platform. While no new details were unveiled about a Dell netbook tablet, a 5-inch device was rumored from the company recently.
ASUS already sells the Intel Atom-powered 9-inch Eee PC T91, with the 10-inch T101 expected soon, probably around the time Windows 7 will launch, as the netbook tablet will use the new OS from Microsoft.
