The sources pointed out that Asustek's US$399 entry-level tablet PC has successfully boosted its demand in the US and the company is already preparing for the second-generation Eee Pad Transformer, using Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 and Google's next-generation operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich), set for launch in October at the earliest.
Asustek will also take over Acer's position and become the largest client of Nvidia for ARM-based CPUs with Asustek estimated to place orders for 2.5 million Tegra 2/3 CPUs in 2011. In addition to tablet PCs, Asustek is also said to be planning to launch a notebook using Nvidia Tegra 3 with Google Chrome for launch at the end of 2011.
