The image above is a banner ad for the Asus EeePad – that was apparently briefly displayed at Best Buy’s online site, before reportedly being pulled by the retailer, possibly after a request from Apple.
I’d say let the ad run wherever Asus wants to post it. It’s more than stupid enough to do the upcoming tablet’s fortunes more harm than good on its own anyway.
Seriously, what a dumb ad. What point is it even trying to make? That users hate on-screen keyboards? There are plenty of keyboard dock, keyboard + case, and wireless keyboard solutions for that for the iPad. If that’s really the killer feature Asus wants to run with, well then good luck with that.
Also, doesn’t the Asus tablet look a hell of a lot like a netbook? Because they haven’t seen their sales utterly torn apart by the iPad right?
