'7-inch ASUS EeePad' image appears, rumored for CES unveiling
ASUS has seen considerable success with its 10-inch EeePad Transformer line, and now the Taiwanese manufacturer could be set to move into the 7-inch tablet space, if a newly-leaked promotional image is any indication. The shot, obtained by Italian site Notebook Italia, shows what seems to be a smaller Android-powered ASUS tablet with a slightly different design to earlier EeePad models. Most notably, the presence of docking connectors at the bottom suggests the possibility of a portrait-orientation keyboard dock, if such an add-on is offered. No firm information is available about specs for the mysterious device, however the possibility of the Transformer Prime's beastly Tegra 3 chip powering this thing already has us salivating.
The source also suggests that ASUS' rumored 7-incher will make its debut at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, which should come as little surprise considering it's barely a week away at this point.
