Martin first mentioned what he brilliantly described as an “avalanche” of new Asus stuff earlier this morning, detailing the Asus FonePad 7 and FonePad Note 6, but the Jonney Shih-scented goodness doesn’t stop there – not by a long shot.
It’s over to yours truly to write some words about the Asus MeMO Pad 8 and MeMO Pad 10.
Of course, the MeMO name traditionally means wallet-friendliness, so prepare to file the new MeMO Pad duo firmly under mid-range.
For starters, shared Asus MeMO Pad 8 and 10 specs include IPS (In-Plane Switching for wide viewing angles) LCD displays with 1280 x 800 resolutions. In terms of PPI, we’re talking 189 and 150 respectively.
Other shared specs include a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 1.2MP front-facing camera, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) on OS duties.
On the Asus MeMO Pad 8 in particular, you’ll find a 5MP rear shooter and 3,950mAh battery, while the 8GB internal storage can be augmented via microSD (phew!).
Somewhat surprisingly, the Asus MeMO Pad 10 has a modest 2MP camera (to be fair, who takes pictures with a tablet anyway?), while the battery is predictably bigger at 5,070mAh. As for storage, there’s a choice of 8GB or 16GB on the larger chap – again with microSD.
No word on Asus MeMO Pad 8 or 10 prices or release dates at this stage, but it’s probably safe to say they won’t break the bank.
