Just after Christmas, here at OSM, we reported on news of Asus and its introduction of 3 possible tablet devices making their way to the CES event starting officially tomorrow. Although at the time specifications for the tablet devices were a little sparse, that is all about to change thanks to a listing packed full of features.
With tablet PC’s playing a huge part in this year’s show, Asus 7-inch “Eee MeMo” device with capacitive display is sure to get attendees’ pulses racing. As Pocket-Lint reported, the Eee will be powered by Qualcomm snapdragon chipset and will run on the much awaited Android 3.0 Honeycomb which has been the talk of the tech world for the last few weeks. Along with this the tablet device will pack dual cameras for video calling, as Engadget reported, 1.2 megapixel for the front and 5 megapixel for the back including LED flash, MeMIC media phone extender and mini HDMI for TV hook up, 1080p playback facility and offer a stylus therefore allowing you to touch the screen with ease and the knowledge of it staying clean.
Another unique selling point to this must be as Engadget stated, the 2 apps being “Media note” allowing you, the user, to take notes with the aid of a scrapbook and the other being “Painter” allowing you to use the capacitive stylus as a drawing “pressure sensitive” tool. Updated information has confirmed the official price for this tablet as being $499 with a launch date of sometime in the month of June.
After digesting this information, you might be interested to learn that other Eee tablets to look out for at CES include, the Slate EP121 due to launch first this month, Eee Pad Transformer and the Eee Pad Slider.
What do you make of the Asus Eee MeMo Tablet device? Will you be able to hold out until its debut in June?
