ASUS kicked off Computex with the Eee Pad, its first true tablet running Windows 7 operating system.

The design is closer to a touch-only notebook and theoretically promises a more advanced experience than the iPad it’s targeted against: the 12-inch EP121 runs a full Windows 7 OS and uses a CULV Core 2 Duo processor that can provide an Apple-like 10 hours of battery life.
Its multi-touch screen can recognize handwriting, a webcam and USB are built-in, and a keyboard dock turns it into a true computer when at home.
Despite the reveal at the Taiwan technology show, the Eee Pad line won’t ship until early 2011 for prices of $399 for the EP101TC and $499 for the EP121, reports Electronista.
