Eee Pad release date in July The ASUS Eee Pad release date is set for July of this year. ASUS‘ CEO Jerry Shen announced this at a conference in Taiwan.

The Eee Pad is positioned to compete head on with Apple’s iPad. It offers distinct features that are missing on the iPad such as full Adobe Flash support, USB ports and an integrated webcam. In addition, it features Google’s open-source lightweight Android operating system. This also seems to be an obvious choice seeing Apple chose its lightweight iPhone OS over its heavyweight Mac OSX to run on the iPad. Finally, its graphics will be supported by NVidia’s Tegra chipset, a standard for mobile devices now.

ASUS expects the introduction of tablet as a new segment in consumer computing will reduce netbook demand by 10 to 20%. For that reason, ASUS wants to have its slice of the tablet pie before it reduces its own netbook sales.

The ASUS Eee Pad will not surprisingly be priced around the iPad’s price of $499 USD. ASUS expects to ship at least 300,000 Eee Pads by the end of 2010. These are ambitious numbers, but ASUS did it before with its netbooks and the T91 and T101 tablets.

We were not far off with our artist rendering (see picture above). This actual photo of the Eee Pad went up on blogs this week, looking good right? We can’t wait!
