It's no big secret that Asus is going to be unveiling new tablets at Computex, but now the first details are starting to trickle out. Asus' Tech in Style website has put up a trio of pictures of what is said to be a new tablet that doesn't look anything like the models Asus has shown so far. The question is, is this Asus' new 3D tablet, or is it an Atom powered MeeGo device?

It's no big secret that Asus is going to be unveiling new tablets at Computex, but now the first details are starting to trickle out. Asus' Tech in Style website has put up a trio of pictures of what is said to be a new tablet that doesn't look anything like the models Asus has shown so far. The question is, is this Asus' new 3D tablet, or is it an Atom powered MeeGo device?

The pictures don't reveal too much in terms of what we're looking at, but judging by the fact that Asus and Intel are hosting a webinar later this week talking about MeeGo, we'd at least daresay that Asus is planning an Atom Z670 powered tablet running MeeGo, be it this one or some entirely different device. Asus has also been talking about a 3D capable tablet in the past, but we'd doubt this is it.

The design is quite interesting, as the tablet is very slim; however, it has a slightly thicker part around the back, towards the middle suggesting that this is where most of the hardware components requiring cooling are located. This is actually quite a clever design, as it means that the tablet is nice and thin where you hold it, while there's still sufficient room to cool the various components inside it.

The third and final picture is something of an enigma though, as apparently it features a "clip". There's also what appears to be a latch switch here and a lens for a camera. The overall colours scheme is black, silver and a metallic brown and from what's show on the pictures it looks like a rather stylish device.

Asus is also running a teaser countdown on its Facebook page titled "Break the Rule: Pad or Phone?" Make what you want of that, but the first picture posted there doesn't give away a thing, apart from the fact that we're looking at a square device with rounded corners. A new picture will apparently be posted every two days from now until Computex.
