Asus may have a super thin tablet in the works

Asus may have a super thin tablet in the works
Asus has been one of the leading companies in the tablet space, and it looks like the Taiwanese company may be looking to push tablets into a new super-thin space. A new report says that Asus may have a new tablet in the works that could become the thinnest on the market. Currently, the thinnest tablet available is the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, which measures at just 6.9mm (.27-inches) thick. But, a new report from Tech2 is claiming that Asus is working on a tablet that will be just 6mm (.236-inches) thick. 

Unfortunately, that's all the info that is available on the tablet. For now, we don't know what the screen size will be of the tablet, or even if it will be an Android tablet or Windows. Still, thin is thin, and 6mm would make for an interesting piece of hardware indeed.

What is this fuss about thin tablets...i am surprised engadget is reporting drop in video playback battery life of new N7...Asus need to learn...thinness is not important than battery life!

I agree, when are these wars over thickness gonna end? Either OEMs need to start looking into more efficient batteries or a manufacturer needs to step up to the plate and make a thicker device with great battery. Take the droid RAZR MAXX for example, why don't we see tablets like that? Not to mention a really thin device feels easier to drop.

Yup...oem should do two variants of tablet/phone one with usual battery and other with gigantic battery :)

Exaggeration of expression wasn't necessary to describe it as SUPER THIN. just thin will do. Its just 0.9 mm less.
