ASUS has officially unveiled its Eee tablet at the Computex 2010 event being held at Taipei, Taiwan. The company has introduced the tablet as a digital notebook equipped with a 2450 dpi touchscreen and has focused specially on the device’s note-taking features.

The 8-inch touchscreen on the notebook had a resolution of 1024×768 pixels and has an input sensitivity of 2450 dpi. The company claims that taking notes will feel like writing on paper. The tablet also has a variety of built-in templates for notepad which users can chose to store, tag, sort, organize and browse through their notes. They can also create annotations for notes in real-time while in a hurry.

Users can also take pictures of lecture slides with the 2 megapixel camera fitted on the tablet and can write on these pictures as well. They can be later synced to a PC using a USB so that the content can be updated. The device also has a slot for microSD cards and a battery that can power it for a period of 10 hours. As for its e-reader features, the gadget has a page turn time of 0.1 second. The absence of the backlight on the TFT-LCD screen of the Eee tablet, which can display 64 shades of gray, make reading for a lengthy period of time easier for the user.

The ASUS Eee tablet is expected to have a price range of $199 to $299 and has been revealed by the company to release in the month of September.
