ASUS’s tablet hybrid computer, the Eee Pad Transformer has been doing pretty well in terms of sales, and according to reports online, a sequel is already in the works. According to the folks at Notebook Italia, who managed to speak with ASUS at Computex this year – the sequel to the Eee Pad Transformer will be running on an ARM processor with the Windows 8 operating system.
The tablet is also expected to be thinner, more powerful, and possibly lighter. With Windows 8′s tablet UI overlaid regular Windows, it feels like the perfect operating system designed specifically for the tablet/laptop hybrid – after all it can make use of both UIs just as well. But with the tablet running on Ubuntu as well, who knows what the open source community will come up with for the tablet as well. It’s not hard to imagine a tablet UI being created for the Linux operating system and being used on the Eee Pad.
