Back at CES, ASUS announced a pair of MeMO tablets: the171 and 370T. The latter caused quite a stir, as it packs NVIDIA's powerhouse Tegra 3 superchip under the hood, along with a 7-inch 1280x800 display, all for under $250. The former, however, is a different beast altogether, as it sports an interesting array of included accessories.
While we patiently wait for more details about the 370T to surface, ASUS has quietly launched the landing page for the 171, showcasing its dual-use nature. Before we go any further, though, here is a quick look at what the 171 has to offer:
- 7-inch display
- 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8260 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB built-in storage, microSD slot
- 5MP rear shooter
- 1.2MP front-facing camera
- microUSB and microHDMI ports
- Android 3.2 (will be upgraded to 4.0)
- Integrated stylus
- MeMIC Bluetooth headset for calls
The MeMO 171 is slated for a release in Asia on March 5th, and it will cost $600 USD.
