Although we haven’t seen the “official” number yet regarding the Transformer launch, I will go ahead and call it an overwhelming success. So what’s next for Asus? A new tablet? A new smartphone? How about BOTH.

Asus is no stranger when it comes to teasing their customers and these newly leaked Asus’ promos for the 2011 Taipei Computex tradeshow, it looks like they’re getting ready to “break the rules.” While everyone is up in arms over what the mystery device could be, my guess is the device will be Asus’ Eee Pad MeMO that was shown off at CES earlier this year and was scheduled to launch in early June.

In case you need a refresher, the Eee Pad MeMO was a 7-inch, dual-core Snapdragon, Gingerbread tablet (said to launch with Honeycomb) that came with a stylus and the option of having a little bluetooth handset you could use to make calls and stream music from the tablet. Essentially giving you a “pad that is also a phone.” Mystery solved. Or is it…?

What’s really throwing me off is the separate teaser pic (above) of what is clearly the Eee Pad MeMO minus the little phone attachment and possibly with an new 3D display? Hmmmmmm… What do you guys think? Phone? Tab? Or BOTH?
