Asus to release five tablets in 2011 Asus has said this weekend that the company will release six new tablets in 2011, and one more before the end of 2010.
President Jerry Shen says the company will launch tablets in four different sizes.

The first of the 2011 tablets is a 12-inch slate which will run on an Intel chipset and feature Windows 7. That device will go into mass production in December with sales beginning in January.

THG says Microsoft gave the company a lot of help "when it came to enhancing current touch and UI technologies for the device."

The following two tablets will be of the 7-inch variety, with the first expected to hit in March. The first will be Wi-Fi-only and the second will include "3.5G" data access and phone capabilities.

By the end of March, the company will launch two 9-inch models, the first being a Windows/Intel model and the second being a Nvidia Tegra 2/Android 2.3.
