The Eee pad will make its official debut Tuesday at a trade show in Taiwan.

Like the iPad, it operates by touch screen and is designed to serve as a multimedia player and e-reader. It runs on Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system.

The Eee pad is scheduled to hit the market early next year. It will cost around $400.
