ASUS MeMo Pad 10 spotted in unboxing video, rumored specs revealed

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.

    Hopefully Asus will release a 10″ ish tablet with 1080p screen which is very thin & lighter (Xperia Z Tablet) with 2GB ram before mid this year?

      I thought they already had a full HD Transformer?

    If Sammy drops the price on Note 10.1 after releasing the new series, this thing will be irrelevant. I’ve got mine for $400 on Dec-31st, so I think Samsung can go lower later on this year.

    Apple will sue because of the corner design in the back. Watch.
