The very first device launched before even CES 2011 started was ASUS’s Eee Pad MeMo. Of course, many you might have seen this elsewhere already but we decided to wait until CES was over to give you a comparable between other tablet devices launched.
So, CES 2011 is officially over as of yesterday and our verdict?
Eee Pad MeMO still ranks up high on our Top 5 Best of CES 2011 list. Why? It packs probably the highest-clocked CPU at dual-core 1.2Ghz. (In comparison, Tegra 2 at dual-core 1Ghz and BlackBerry Playbook uses dual-core 1Ghz) CPU speed isn’t everything (and we probably need to do real-world testing) but it still is a good point of reference.
Also the Eee Pad MeMO will be running Google’s latest Android 3.0 (specifically customized for tablet computer), meaning we will have a UI (user interface) that’s completely different from what Android smartphone users have been using.
Another big factor is ASUS’s brand. I am one of those people who have bought many ASUS products ever since ASUS started making netbooks and ASUS always comes out ahead in the end with great products with powerful features at less than half the price of its competitors.
Although this is the very first Android tablet from ASUS, I have a good gut feeling, it might be one of the better ones that will survive the year 2011.
The price of Eee Pad MeMO will be around $499 to $699 depending on storage specs and will be available starting June 2011.
The Eee Pad MeMo has a 7-inch screen with 1024×600 resolution, Qualcomm 8260 dual-core 1.2Ghz processor, and front/back cameras with LED flash.
The Eee Pad also ups current tablet devices in the market by letting you use a pressure-sensitive tablet stylus to draw with precision and accuracy.
The Eee Pad MeMo has the best specs (as far as dual-core 1.2Ghz processor goes), and we will have to wait for more details but certainly might be worth your wait if you want a 7-inch Android tablet device.
