Running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) the new tablet will offer 1080p playback and offer support for a stylus. It will come with dual cameras for video calling, and feature a MeMIC media phone extender, along with a mini-HDMI to hook up to your TV.
The Eee Slate EP121 on the other hand will be a Windows 7 Home Premium powered device with an 12.1-inch, 1280 x 800, display. It will be powered by an Intel Core i5-470UM processor and come with 64GB of SSD storage and 4GB of system memory.
