While tablet PC’s now seem to dominate the market, there are still uses for smaller devices that one can simply put into one’s pocket. While tablets may have substantially bigger displays, there are people who might wish for a device with similar features to what a tablet may have but one that does not always need to be carried around by hand. Hence there are tablets like the new Asus Eee Pad MeMo that are developed to fill up such needs.
The new Eee Pad MeMo from Asus features a 7.1″ capacitive touch screen display that makes it just small enough to fit into a jacket pocket, something that bigger tablets may not be able to do. It becomes quite a handy tablet to make handwritten notes as well as use for a variety of other features. Its features certainly do make it quite a capable tablet that can be comparable to its bigger relatives.
As displayed at CeBit in Hanover, Germany the upcoming Asus Eee Pad MeMo features a 1.2GHz Qualcomm 8260 processor, 1GB RAM and storage options of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It also comes with a 5MP rear facing camera with Led flash, a 1.2MP front facing camera as well as HSPA, WiFi and Bluetooth support. Other features include a GPS, G-sensor, proximity sensor, e-compass and a micro HDMI port. Although the release date for the Asus Eee Pad MeMo is expected to be set around June of this year, the expected pricing has already been provided. The 8 and 16GB model is expected to cost around US$690 while the 32 to 64GB versions expected to go for around US$965.
