ASUS Eee Pad models teased ahead of CES

Images of three upcoming Eee Pad tablets from ASUS have leaked via Techinstyle.tv, possibly in a fashion similar to the controlled “leak” from HTC last week. The images appear to show three different Eee Pad models, each with a 10-inch touchscreen display. While little can actually be gleaned from the photo set, we know at least one model will be powered by Android due to the presence of touch sensitive Android-style menu buttons. This model also appears to have a convertible QWERTY keypad. Another Eee Pad model appears to feature a physical keypad as well. According to previous rumors, one of these tablets should run Windows 7 and sport Intel’s Oak Trail processor, while the other two tablets may run Android atop NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 CPU. Hit the jump for more images of ASUS’ upcoming Eee Pad tablets.

UPDATE: As noted by BGR reader Bob, at least one of ASUS’ tablets will feature a USB 3.0 port, as indicated by the blue strip above the port opening in one of the images seen below. More →

Dell Looking Glass tablet gets FCC approval

FCC approval documents for what is believed to be the Dell Looking Glass have been revealed Monday, shedding new light on the unannounced tablet. The upcoming tablet codenamed Looking Glass received its Wi-Fi Alliance certification last last week, and now an FCC approval brings additional information ahead of Dell’s imminent announcement. Notable specs include 3G compatibility with both AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks, SD card support, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. Rumors also suggest that the tablet will feature Google’s Android OS, a 7-inch touchscreen display and a Tegra 2 processor. The Looking Glass may be revealed next week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, likely with “Streak” branding to line up with Dell’s first tablet device.
