ASUS came to CES with the 7 inch MeMo Pad, and while the OEM clearly wasn’t looking to “ooh” and “wow” the crowds of the world, the tablet should be a very nice option for those looking for a tablet around the $150 price point. Well, it looks like another variant of the MeMo Pad is in the works and ASUS could be bringing it to us at Mobile World Congress next month.
A 10 inch version of the MeMo Pad has shown up in an unboxing video on YouTube. The device goes with the safest of 10-inch tablet designs as it has a very ordinary-looking glossy white back plate and a black bezel on the front. The profile looks to be thin enough for ASUS to be proud about, but it’s nothing we haven’t become accustomed to by now.
The software front even seems all too familiar, though this does give us an opportunity to marvel at the device’s snappiness. You are probably wondering what’s under the hood that makes it look as smooth as it does. Thankfully, some of those details have already surfaced.
For the display, we’re getting a 10 inch 1280×800 panel which indicates this tablet will look to be competitively priced. It’s said to feature NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 clocked at 1.2GHz. That’s no beast by 2013’s standards, but it is still one of the nicer chipsets on the market. Other specs will include 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.2 megapixel front camera.
A $300 price point doesn’t sound far off the mark for such a configuration, but there’s no telling what ASUS will look to do here. We’ll know more at Mobile World Congress next month where ASUS is expected to reveal this thing on a global scale. We’ll see if an attractive price point will be the biggest thing going for what seems to be a very ordinary package otherwise. Have a look at the unboxing above.
