You shouldn’t be surprised that Asus is already hard at work planning out what will follow their current lineup of Android tablets, which includes the Eee Pad Transformer and a few other yet to be released Honeycomb slates. Next-generation specs seem to be the theme, as the company is said to be developing both a quad-core Tegra 3 (Kal El) tablet and an Intel Atom device. There is no specific word on operating system, but the assumption is at least one will run Android.
If you haven’t read up on Kal El, check out our full report from Mobile World Congress. NVIDIA is aiming to get the next-gen chip into tablets by end of summer/early fall, and we suspect Asus could be among the first with such a device. Will they be able to do it at a similarly unbeatable price point as the Transformer? Let’s wait and see…
