The Eee Tablet will feature a media player, as well making it not only appropriate for making making notes, but also for recreation.
It does not appear that the device has WiFi or any other wireless connectivity which puts it in a peculiar spot in the marketplace somewhere between a non-connected ebook reader and a more fully-featured tablet like the iPad and Android devices. If hackable to become an input device for a PC, the Asus Eee Tablet could be a serious competitor to the Wacom Cintiq 12WX digital tablet used by creative professionals.

The Notepad Goes Digital with the Eee Tablet
Innovation meets cloud computing at Computex 2010 with the ASUS Eee Tablet.
