The Nexus 7 has an unofficial bigger brother in the form of the MeMo Pad Smart 10, a 10.1-inch slate that was finally made official by Asus last week. Watch the newly released trailer to get to know it better.
Just when I was putting the finishing touches on my alien-focused MWC 2013 preview, I came across a video teaser of Asus’s presence at the event. And guess what, the clip is also centered on extraterrestrial beings.
Barcelona’s MWC 2013 is to take place between February 25 and 28, and, based on preceding rumors and leaks, this is what we expect to see on stage.
The Global Certification Forum confirmed that Asus will be soon distributing the first Asus tablet to use an Intel processor, and that it will be called the Asus Fonepad.
It’s hard not to appreciate the Nexus 7 for setting the Android tablets bar pretty high despite its sub-$200 pricing. Trying to grab a bigger piece of the budget tablet market this year are Asus and Acer.
It sure took Asus long enough, but the Taiwanese finally introduced its affordable 10-inch Jelly Bean tablet, the Memo Pad Smart, in Thailand last week.
And so it starts. The battle for this year’s MWC spotlight, that is. We’re pretty certain Samsung and HTC have different fish to fry, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of treats in Barcelona from other big names in the industry.
Well, they’ve done it again. The folks over at Tablet.Bg have got ahold of a pre-release unit of the Asus MemoPad Smart 10, which they’ve quickly reviewed, just like the MemoPad 7 and Acer’s Iconia B1 before.
It might have sounded like a bad pun at first or an uninspired hoax, but, believe it or not, the Asus Fonepad could be real.
If you’re looking for a slightly cheaper Nexus 10 alternative that’s not exactly a powerhouse, GameStop is currently offering the 32 GB Asus Transformer Pad TF300T for the special price of $300.
