Not only the first Asus at CES, speaks if you remember in fact expected a 7-inch model, which may have resulted in two variants of the MeMO (which we have never seen): the MeMO 370T and the ME171, revised version (but even then not too much) of the original.
These two tablets become available even in geological time, let’s see what’s hiding under the hood of the ME171:
- 7 IPS capacitive display inch WXGA (1280 x 800)
- 2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8260 to
- 1 GB of RAM
- 16 GB/32 GB internal memory + “ASUS Webstorage”
- WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and Qualcomm One GPS
- Back camera 5MP camera with video capture at 1080 p
- 2 front camera MP
- Gravity sensor, compass, gyroscope, light sensor and proximity sensor
- Micro-USB, micro-HDMI (1.3 in), and MicroSD cards
- 4400mAh battery with 8.5 hours of video playback declared
Specifications not mind-boggling that become available in North America in the second quarter of 2012, but we don’t know at what price, or when (and if) will come here too. Mini gallery below, and then moving on to 370T.
The 370T is very similar to its ancestor, and stands only for two small details: Tegra CPU 3 and8 megapixel rear camera. For the rest the two tablets are identical, although hardly will also be in the price. Rumors regarding his coming soon though there are none, either by us or in other shores.
Judging by the cost of the First (or “gods” First), Asus doesn’t seem to still want to compete on price, offering cutting-edge technologies but at a cost just as uncommon. And say that in the past just the CEO of Nvidia (which lately is manning the top models from Asus) had complained of the excessive cost of Android tablets.
