ASUS had a good year in 2012, which coincided with the launch of high-end products in the Transformer line up, and of course the debut of Padfone 2, announced in Italy a couple of months ago. By far, the most popular product launched by ASUS in 2012 was the Nexus 7, a tablet co-developed by the Taiwan-based company and Google.
It looks like ASUS has big plans for 2013, as well and today we are coming with new details and press photos of the alleged ASUS MeMo Pad 10.
ASUS MeMo Pad 10 made the headlines over the past few weeks, especially after the MeMo Pad 7 was officially announced. Today we get to see the first leaked press photos of the upcoming ASUS tablet.
As you can see in the gallery bellow the resemblance to ASUS Transformer Pad 300 is uncanny and it seems that MeMo Pad 10 will be available both in blue and white liveries.
The ASUS MeMo Pad 10 is not meant for fighting against the high-end tablets on the market, but, judging by the technical specifications of the device, it will be placed somewhere in the mid-range segment.
The hardware platform is based on the same Tegra 3 chipset you will find inside Nexus 7 or Transformer TF700, two ASUS devices that by last-year’s standards were considered high-end products.
According to the reports, ASUS MeMo Pad 10 will come with a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with 1,280 x 800 pixels and the same high-quality materials that made the Asian manufacturer so popular. The tablet comes with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage while running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The technical specifications list includes microSD card slot, USB and HDMI out, plus a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera and 5 megapixel camera on the back.
Besides the leaked press photos, retail product listings were revealed, suggesting that MeMo Pad 10 will have a starting price of €329 and raising to up to €389 for the most expensive model.
ASUS MeMo Pad 10 is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress 2013 in late February.
