Asus Eee Pad MeMo

The Eee Pad MeMo 7 inch Android tablet has undergone a bit of a makeover since Asus first introduced it at CES 2011. This week Asus is showing off a new model with a high resolution 1280 x 800 pixel display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

But gone are the capacitive stylus and Bluetooth media remote control.

Some of the details for the new model have yet to be finalized. Asus could ship the tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor or an NVIDIA Tegra chip. It will probably have WiFi, Bluetooth, aGPS, and aSIM card slot and up to 8.5 hours of battery life.

Asus says 14.2 ounce tablet is expected to launch during the second quarter of 2012, but there’s no word on how much it will cost.

Update: Asus has announced that the tablet will have an NVIDA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and sell for $249.

  1. I guess the bluetooth remote/handset wasn’t particularly popular? I would love to see it as a stand alone product.  

  2. Okay please clear this up. The 171 model why is that there? If it’s discontinued, why would they have it there? Is there going to be both MeMO coming out? Is the 171 scrapped?

    1. I wish I could tell you. Asus may still be finalizing the specs, this could be a before and after thing, or there may be multiple versions offered in different regions. 

      All I know is I went to an Asus event in the morning where I was told that the company hadn’t yet even definitively decided which processor to use, and a few hours later during the NVIDIA press conference they announced it would have a Tegra 3 chip and sell for $249. 

      1. Hey Brad thanks for that. It’s very confusing. Heh, they even have the
        wrong processor listed in the press release. Nicole from NetbookNews
        (scraper site) said during her video they were scrapping the MeMIC
        version but I’m questioning that comment. Asus makes things confusing
        for sure. Just wait for Windows. There will be 4 versions of each Eee
        Pad! People can’t keep track of this including myself. If you do hear
        about the 171, I’d appreciate it. Thanks again for the reply.
