This. Digital artists of various disciplines have been begging for a product like this for years. This particular usergroup should see a level of usefulness from this that you'll simply not get with any other tablet on the market.

But, now that there's finally a wacom powered tablet w/ sensitivity, the next question is "how much sensitivity?".

Anyway, looking at typical wacom device prices & the other hefty hardware in this thing, the price really isn't a stretch at all.

There was that HP slate for about the same price with an atrocious Intel Atom processor. What a joke.

For the same price, you can get a Lenovo Ideapad X201t with a Core i7 Dual core. Except it wont be in slate form.

Gotta love this slate. But the others look great aswell, i'm wondering if the MeMO would sell that great though.

Throw in the probably 8-10 other quality tablets we'll see soon, and well, you get the picture. Apples 90 some odd percent market share will be at most 70% after one generation of competition. Won't take long for that number to change further, especially as people with android phones decide they want a tablet with the same OS.
I guarantee you these won't make a dent. It's like ASUS themselves doesn't know who to make tablets for, so like a buckshot, they mass produce a handful of different products and hope one of them sticks. Of course, you'll call that "choice", but at the end of the day it's bad for consumers who buy into it because these devices won't be supported for very long because sales will suck, and it's bad for business for obvious reasons.

But call me a troll and ignore the obvious. That's fine too.

Ignore the obvious? Like the fact that these start cheaper than the iPad, are faster, have more options, and will be sold along side the iPad in many B&M stores? Ignore the fact that millions of people are loving android, and would like a tablet with the same OS? Sounds like someone else is ignoring the obvious. I'm not saying these will sweep the iPad aside, I'm not a blind fanboy, but I am saying android tablets will definitely grab some good market share.

If you think most people that buy an iPad, or will buy an android tablet will care weather it gets the update that comes out afterwards, you'd be wrong. Of course, I'd love to see awesome support, but most people don't know the difference between iOS 3.0 and 4.2, or android 2.1 and 2.3 (except flash, but then that's also not an option on the iPad for the average user).

Right, support for a cintiq sucks, because the market's too small........
Support for Porche sucks compared to Ford because they have a smaller market share.

What the hell have you been smoking dude?


By my reckoning apple doesn't know 'who' to make tablets for either. For 99% of the market base the idea of a 'touchy' tablet is nothing more than a novelty. The only company that really "knows" who to make tablets for is Wacom, and they've been doing it for years & make the best 'touch' products you're going to find anywhere in the world. Asus at least has the wisdom to seek the aid of the most veteran company in the business, instead of mindlessly producing hyped junk that is little more than a prettified pda to anyone who actually wants touch functionality for a reason(just about every single so called 'tablet' product I've seen so far).
