>ASUS Announces UX21, Tablets, Macbook Air Beware

ASUS UX21

>Apparently not satisfied with just announcing the Voltron-esque Padfone, ASUS also announced a few more devices. First up is the Eee Pad MeMO 3D, a 7″ IPS glasses-free 3D display running Honeycomb. What’s really cool about this guy is that it is 3G enabled. That’s nothing new, but tablets can’t exactly be used for phone calls very well. But it will be bundled with the MeMic bluetooth handset. The MeMic will allow you to take calls, control music, and a few other basic functions.

The other big device announced today was the UX21, an ultra thin laptop that will be going head-to-head with the Macbook Air. The laptop is built almost entirely out of aluminum, the trackpad made of glass, and only weighs 2lbs. There will be a few models, all running Windows 7, with the highest end rocking Intel’s Core i7 processors. In addition to that, you’ll get a SATA III Solid State Drive, allowing this thing to go from sleep to fully active in 2 seconds. Literally. ASUS claims that the battery can last up to a week when hibernating. No pricing was announced, but we’ll find out soon since this bad boy launches this September.
