ASUS reveals Nexus-style MeMO Pad HD 7
ASUS also has the FonePad, Transformer Book and Zenbook Infinity up its sleeve
It seems ASUS has been very, very busy.
The Taiwanese company took home-advantage to reveal a raft of high-end, highly desirable new consumer products ranging from new Android tablets to new Windows laptops and everything in-between.
As the actual manufacturer of the Google Nexus 7, ASUS had a Nexus 7-beating tablet to show off in the form of the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7.
MeMO Pad HD 7
This 7-inch Nexus 7 look-a-like has 8GB and 16GB models.
A standard 1280×800 IPS screen is OK, along with 1GB of memory with 1.2MP front and 5MP rear camera. The base model will sell for around £85 in the UK, which should turn a few heads.
A 10-inch version will offer a far better 1920×1200 display with 16GB and 32GB models. No word on pricing as yet.
If you love high-resolution screens check out the new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity that has a massive 2560×1600 10.1-inch display, which is capable of driving 4K UHD displays.
Running the latest NVIDIA Tegra 4 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 processor, it has 2GB of memory and 32GB of storage, and also comes with a detachable keyboard, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 too boasting some of the best specifications of any tablet.
If you love MASSIVE phones the ASUS Fonepad Note is a 6-inch Android monster.
Sporting a 1920×1080 Super IPS+ display it’s running an 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor with 2GB of memory.
It’s a clear competitor for the equally massive Samsung Galaxy Note II – even boasting a stylus.
ASUS Transformer Book Trio
Finally, the ASUS Transformer Book Trio is both a Windows 8 machine and an Android hybrid.
The Trio aspect comes in as the display undocks from the keyboard for a full tablet experience and can be used as a desktop, which is pretty clever stuff. It runs an 11.6-inch 1080p display, which is pretty respectable.
It’s also running a hugely powerful Intel Core i7 processor, which means it certainly won’t be cheap, besides this there’s another Intel Atom to run Android.
If you’re worried about power, don’t, it also packs two batteries.
