Asus MeMO Pad 10 Details and Specs Leaked

By  |  1 Comment

A new leak from Tablets Magazine details the specs on the upcoming Asus MeMO Pad 10 tablet.

The Asus MeMO Pad 10 is the larger version of the Eee Pad MeMO that Asus and NVIDIA discussed at CES 2013. While the Pad 10 is larger than the 7-inch tablet, it has some fairly similar specs according to the leak.

The leaked specs say the Asus MeMO Pad 10 will have a 10-inch 1280×800 display, which is the same resolution as the Nexus 7, but in a larger screen. The MeMO Pad 10 will use a quad-core 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor like the Eee Pad MeMO, which will likely make the 10-inch tablet a budget tablet for its size.ASUS-MeMO-Pad-10

The Asus MeMO Pad 10 will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, likely with a custom skin on top of it. The leak also suggests the tablet will have 16GB of internal storage, a 1.2MP front-facing camera, a 5MP rear-facing camera and 1GB of RAM.

To make the tablet stand out Asus will offer the MeMO Pad 10 in a variety of colors, according to the leaked information. The leak claims the tablet will come in gray/blue, pink and white. Gray and white are typical colors for mobile devices, but it’s relatively rare to see a pink tablet or smartphone.

There’s no word on pricing or a release date for the 10-inch Android tablet. Tablets Magazine speculates that Asus will announce the MeMO Pad 10 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, which seems like a natural place for the announcement.

The Dutch publication also speculates that Asus could charge 300 Euros for the tablet, which translates to U.S. $399. The Eee Pad MeMO will cost $249 in the U.S., which is slightly more than the Nexus 7. It’s hard to imagine the MeMO Pad 10 selling for the same price as the Nexus 10, which has better specs all around.

    One Android tablet maker making strides to offer quality Android tablets at budget prices is Ainol Electronics – which has previously won runner-up for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES, and this month has introduced the Novo Quad Core Series of Android tablets– including the Novo 7 Venus which launched this week — with one U.S. reseller – a site called TabletSprint offering this new model for $149 —

    The Novo 7 Venus compares to the Nexus 7 tablet but for much less – matching key features, including a Quad Core processor, a high resolution multi-touch 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front camera, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled — while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn’t – including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, an HDMI 1080p port to download and watch movies directly from a tablet on a large screen TV and also project and play video games on to a big screen; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G Wireless connection through its USB port with a 3G/4G USB adapter.

    The Novo Hero II also launched earlier this month – a full size, 10 inch Android tablet that packs in most of the same features, including a quad core processor and 1280×800 IPS screen – Plus 32GB memory and a strong 8,000 mAh battery — all for less than $250.

    In February, the Novo 9 Spark is also expected to be released, which will feature a Quad Core processor along with a 9.7 inch 2048×1536 Retina screen – along with a powerful 10,000 mAh battery and a 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash for $270.

    It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Quad Core Series fares in 2013 as this company gains more presence in the U.S.
