During Computex, we followed Asus as they announced to the world that it was working on a 10″ slate based on the enigmatic Windows Embedded Compact 7 called the Eee Pad 101TC. According to Netbook News, Asus will be switching from WEC7 to Android (presumably Android 2.2) thus making the total slate count using WEC7 a solid zero. This should be a relief to consumers as initial impressions of WEC7 were not very good.

If Asus is keeping the specs for the Eee Pad EP101TC the same as previously revealed, the Eee Android device will compete closely with MSI’s WindPad 110 – both will be 10″ units running NVIDIA Tegra 2.

Netbook News believes we will see glimpses of the EP101TC this coming December which logically means lots of face time during CES 2011 in January.
