ASUS will supposedly be dumping Windows 7 for their Eee Pad (EP101TC) tablet for Android. The device sports a 10-inch touchscreen and was first spotted at the Computex Wireless show several weeks ago. Then, it was running Microsoft’s (admittedly polished) OS, but ASUS probably saw something in Android 3.0 – the version they’re hoping to ship this with – that helped change their minds.
The prototype being worked on right now is said to be running Android 2.2 according to German site NetbookNews, but that’s just a placeholder until Android 3.0 nears RC status.
