ASUS Eee Pad to use multi-touch, Tegra?

updated 02:10 pm EST, Tue December 22, 2009

ASUS tablet would support HD video

ASUS' rumored Eee Pad tablet will use some form of NVIDIA's Tegra chipset if a leak today is accurate. Industry tips claim that it will have some form of the new processor, potentially including the next-generation model. The move would give the 4- to 7-inch device at least 720p HD and possibly 1080p if based on the future NVIDIA hardware.

At the same time, Netbook News claims that multi-touch input is "as good as confirmed" and, as a result, hint that the Eee Pad won't use Windows CE or Mobile but instead a platform that actually recognizes multi-touch natively, such as Android 2.x. Windows 7 supports multi-touch but would be ruled out as it doesn't support ARM processors like the Tegra.

The ambitiousness of the design may contribute to a delayed release, as ASUS now isn't slated to ship the tablet until after March.
