Asus Eee Pad With Detachable Keyboard To Rival Apple iPad

According to Jerry Shen, the CEO at Asus, the success of Apple iPad has encouraged many developers to take the touchscreen route to build applications for customers. However, there are several limitations with a compeletely touch screen device that Asustek will like to address.

In an interview with Polish publication RP, Shen has noted that the company will be launching a new series of Eee Pads with detachable keyboard that will not only serve as netbooks when required but can also be converted to touchscreen tablet PCs when the user needs it.

Shen has also insisted that the company is not focused only at Microsoft Windows and that Asus will also take a look at other platforms in the market while building their future gadgets.
