ASUS has finally made its Computex 2013 announcement in Taiwan after teasing us a bit. So what did it end up being? Say hello to the ASUS MeMo Pad FHD 10. As the name doubly implies, it’s a 10-inch Android tablet with full HD resolution. That particular spec is nothing ground breaking in today’s tech world with retina-like displays seeding the market, but we’re still happy to see ASUS felt the need to go with full HD. The device is actually powered by Intel’s dual-core 1.6GHz ATOM chipset from the Clover Trail+ family, as well as 2GB of RAM.
This device has Android 4.2 to start, which should make plenty of you happy knowing that you’d be on the latest (well, until Key Lime Pie launches, of course) version of Android out of the box. Available in both 16GB and 32GB configurations, you’ll have a couple of different color options — black and white — if you decide to go with this for your next 10-inch tablet. Connectivity options include WiFi N, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS. You’ll also get a 5 megapixel camera on the rear, a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front, stereo speakers, and more.
Unfortunately we’re not yet sure when to expect this thing, and you can imagine that also means we have no idea how much it’ll cost just yet. We’ll be seeking those details shortly, but for the time being just know ASUS is looking to continue its partnership with Intel in a big way with this new offering. Be sure to stay tuned for any other news that might come out of Computex in Taiwan this week!
