Asus didn’t publicly introduce any new tablets at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. In fact, the only new product the company showed off was the upcoming Qube Google TV set-top-box.

But that doesn’t mean Asus didn’t bring a few new toys to Vegas. In private meetings with retailers, the company was showing off new 7 and 10 inch tablets… and Dutch site managed to get a few photos and details.

It’s not surprising that Asus has new tablets in the works. We’ve been hearing about new low-cost 7 and 10 inch models for weeks. But it’s nice when rumors and leaks can be confirmed.

The smaller tablet features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1 GHz WM8950 single core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and Mali 400 graphics.

It has 1GB of RAM, and 8GB to 16GB of storage.

In other words, it’s sort of like a really cheap alternative to the Google Nexus 7, which isn’t exactly expensive, with a starting price of $199.

The ME172V also has a TN screen instead of the IPS display on the Nexus 7, which means the viewing angles and image quality won’t be nearly as good.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but I’d be shocked if anyone tried to charge more than $150 for this tablet, and my gut tells me it will sell for substantially less than that.

Asus is also showing off a larger tablet with better specs… although they’re still kind of early 2012-era specs.

The ME301T has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. It has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and generally seems a lot like a Nexus 7 with a larger display. says the tablet has an aluminum back and is very thin and light.
