Right off the bat we should say that the Asus MeMo pad isn’t coming to the UK. Sad times as it is a nice bit of kit; the 7-inch screen of the MeMo features IPS technology and boasts a resolution of 1280 x 800. So nice it made our eyes water.
There’s a 5-megapixel main camera unit on the back and a 1.2-megapixel front facer for video calls. That main camera is capable of shooting 1080p HD video which would no doubt look a treat when played back on the screen – we weren’t able to test the camea out on this model though.
Running on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chip and coming in 16GB and 32GB versions the Asus Memo will be arriving on shelves Stateside in the second quarter of this year and will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
First shown off at CES by Nvidia during its keynote, the Asus MeMo pad looks to be priced at $249 (about £169). We’re presuming that’s the price for the 16GB edition; as soon as we hear about the price of the 32GB one we’ll let you know.
