Asus Talking Up iPad Rivals

Elizabeth Woyke, reporting for Forbes:

Asus is about to roll out its own iPad rivals. In an interview with Forbes, Shih revealed that Asus is planning to release “at least two” tablet PCs in the coming months. […] Shih said one Asus tablet will likely run Google software, such as the upcoming open-source operating system, Chrome, or the mobile operating system, Android.

They don’t know yet? (And if it’s Chrome OS, just how soon could it arrive?)

The other will probably be based on Microsoft’s Windows platform.

“Probably”? Yes, these iPad competitors from Asus sound imminent and thoroughly thought-out.
